Description:

Tignes Spirit is the only independent, British-owned ski and snowboard shop...

Tignes Spirit is the only independent, British-owned ski and snowboard shop in the Espace Killy. Based in Tignes, we stock independent brands of hardware and apparel, including Salomon, Head, Elan, Movement, Majesty, Dalbello, Nike, Burton, Endeavor, Signal, Airblaster, Ashbury, Stance, Butta, Dragon Alliance and many others.

Our ski and snowboard rental service is the best in Tignes, offering a free delivery and collection service which saves you the time and hassle you would usually experience trekking to the rental shop. The quality of products and the low prices we offer, by far outshine all other rental shops, whilst our English and French speaking technicians have been hand-picked for their extensive technical knowledge and amazing customer service skills. Our entire crew live for the snow and were the best UK shop team at the British Championships in 2013 and 2014, winning the most medals across the board!

The latest in touring skis, split-boards, snow shoes and cross-country equipment are all available for rent and purchase at Tignes Spirit. We offer daily rates so that you can rent different equipment for each day of your holiday... if you want to! We have the latest in children's ski and snowboard equipment, stocking skis as small as 70cm, along with 70cm snowboards used for the Burton Riglet programme. (All children receive a free helmet as part of their package.)

Tignes Spirit is the only rental service to offer outerwear and protective clothing hire to chalets and apartments all over the Espace Killy area. Based in le lavachet, our shop doubled in size in early 2014, so we are now able to give a quality service to even more people at any given time! Our opening hours are 7am until very late, ensuring that all clients are catered for. You need not worry if you are delayed way beyond the closing time of most rental shops and need to be kitted out before the panic of ski school start times the next day. We will ensure that you and your entire party are kitted out and can enjoy maximum slope time.

Our workshop is also based in Tignes le lavachet, just down the steps from our main shop. As well as servicing our large rental fleet, we provide repairs and servicing to anyone who wishes to give their plank(s) some tender loving care! Skis and snowboards previously thought to be damaged beyond repair, have been brought back to life by our well-trained and highly experienced technicians for amazingly competitive prices.

Tignes Spirit is the go-to shop for all visitors to Tignes. With our great links and relationships with other businesses throughout the Espace Killy, we can organise holiday accommodation and transfers in all areas of Tignes and Val d'Isere, as well as an easy and affordable, quality equipment rental service.

The staff were helpful and had great knowledge - Jordan was able to advise on different ski choices for people with different levels and interests. The website is good and allows you to learn more about the equipment you're hiring. Finally, the customer service is fantastic, they were able to drive us and our equipment back to the hotel after...

I can't recommend these guys enough. Great communication as our transfer was much longer than originally stated so had to re-arrange pick up. They came to pick us up from our hotel, the shop was very busy, however joe ( I think) didn't rush us at all. My eldest daughter was happy in the first pair of boots she tried,... More

I was part of a party of 8 - we were collected from our chalet to be fitted out and the shop also, happily, came out to us again the following day when 2 of the party needed to change boots and a helmet- running us to the shop and back. That resulted in a pair of brand new boots... More

Tignes Spirit were the only company that offered Sunday evening opening and quote "would stay open as late as we needed". No stress for Monday morning skischool. They picked us up from our Chalet and took us to the shop. They picked the equipment up a... More

Having used Tignes Spirit before we headed straight back there when friends came to visit and needed some ski's. Excellent & friendly service as always and great prices/products. Can also highly recommend the workshop for waxing&servicing they always do a fantastic job on our snowboards and again are super helpful and friendly

Having rented skis from this outlet for the first half of the season, I decided to swap out for a snowboard. All sorted very quickly in an organised manner. Lottie and Joe were both extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Also, I would add that the shop is ridiculously well stocked with apparel, could spend hours just browsing.

Tignes Spirit is a great place to start your skiing holiday. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about their equipment, resort and the best ski areas for your experience and requirements. There is a superb range of equipment for hire or purchase in store at very competitive prices. It made a sometimes stressful part of the holiday far easier.

Fantastic service at Tignes spirit! It was crazy busy when we were in there but the staff were more than helpful and made sure that all of my equipment was spot on before I left. I bought the gold package and had a fantastic week of skiing. The prices were great and the girls at the back also pointed out... More

I have just returned from a week in Tignes with 6 of my friends. We use Tignes Spirit for our ski and equipment hire and this is what we found; The ski's were in very poor/damaged condition no matter which level you hired, I hired Gold and they were battered. Helmets and Goggles were like they were from a second... More
