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.

Having used Tignes spirit both in resort for kit hire and remotely when buying boards I can safely say that you will struggle to find a more helpful and knowledgeable team. Great kit, great service and assistance which goes above and beyond the norm. Look forward to seeing you all this season

The guys at Tignes Spirit really looked after me and went above and beyond to service my snowboards at short notice. Run by snowboarders their expertise is second to none, turning a bunch of boards that had taken a season long beating back into finely tuned powder slaying weapons. For anything snowboard related this is the only place you need... More

Hired two sets of boots, skis and poles from here for my daughter and myself. They equipment was a little tired but perfectly adequate for what we needed and the service was fairly quick and friendly. My daughter had an accident with 2 days to go so I needed some paperwork to assist the insurance claim. They have a paperless... More

I continue to be highly impressed by Tignes Spirit. This time the staff got me onto a great pair of all mountain skis, out of my comfort zone, in anticipation of some fantastic powder and to cope with the afternoon slush. It was the best recommendation ever and the powder did come! Keep up!

Dropping off the ski equipment to our chalet and collecting it from the bar we ended the week in really made the difference along with the quality of the equipment itself

Thank you again for a very prompt, efficient and courteous service, one of the things that seem to antagonise people when they go away is the lack of communication and you didn’t have this problem at all from start to finish you were excellent and when we come back to the area we will not hesitate to use you again.

Our booking was really easy and well managed from booking to arrival in resort. Communication was top notch. The fitting in Tignes was the best we've had anywhere and we've been skiing for over 20 years. We always have issues with my sons boots but TS chaps were excellent in sorting him out with the right boots. Nothing was too... More

I thought your service was amazing in that you actually came to the chalet to deliver the gear and thenpick up the gear afterwards. The chap who dealt with it was very helpful and date and the care work perfectly all week. Also the price was very good indeed. So, if I'm coming back to Tignes, it will be you... More
