About
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.

Best ski rental company in Tignes
Feb 2021 • Solo
Tignes Spirit is a great ski rental company in Tignes. High quality gear at affordable prices and really friendly staff always happy to help.

Due to covid, I reccomend going in to return gear when you get off the mountain to avoid the end of day rush for 6pm curfew!

Great service - would definitely recommend. Rented our ski and snowboarding gear from here four years in a row and wouldn't go any where else. Always really friendly and knowledgeable service.

Best shop for snowboard/ ski hire!
Nov 2020 • Friends
Definitely the best snowboard / ski shop I’ve visited for both hire, and purchasing a board! Staff are super friendly and go above and beyond to meet your needs! The shipping was also really quick with no problems at all! I am definitely going to visit in future!

Awesome Online Store!
Mar 2020
I ordered a Tignes Spirit crew jumper which I'd been after since March 2020 when my skiing trip abruptly ended due to Covid, I used there online store to find exactly what I was looking for and was so excited when I was finally able to order it!
My parcel was despatched super quick and arrived within a week to the UK. The communication throughout was great and when my parcel arrived I couldn't be happier with it!
Really appreciate how quickly I got my parcel, friendly email and my stickers and beanie also with my jumper! Could not recommend their online store enough will be ordering again soon if I can't make it out to Tignes this year!

Big Shout out to the Tignes Spirit crew! Hope you guys have a good winter season despite Covid-19!

Gear rental
Nov 2019 • Family
Very helpful team and advice given for gear rental. Loads of choice so the advice is really useful. No hassle with ordering, paying and collecting our gear. Super quick, and at the time that we wanted.
Also as a local company too will get priceless advice about the local area. Be it about where to shred or the best places to eat or go for a drink.
Couldn't recommend tignes spirit highly enough. A true tignes institution. Get involved.

Tignes Spirit are the best!
Dec 2019
I usually come to Val annually, either with family or friends. Every time I come, I have almost always used Tignes Spirit, whether I was in Tignes, Val or Le Fornet. They have always been incredibly accommodating no matter the challenge. Whether we were arriving late to the chalet, or there was a last-minute change to our booking or one of the kids lost their helmet or we needed to change skis, Tignes Spirit were always courteous, professional and efficient. It goes without saying I will only ever use them for our ski hire service! Thank you Tignes Spirit and we can't wait to see you on our next trip.

Great shop great service
Mar 2020
Pleasant experience from start to finish courtesy of Kate and her colleagues.
They were all very knowledgeable, cheerful and went that extra mile. The equipment provided was excellent with plenty of choice. Good flexibility too if you need to switch for different conditions or want to try something different.

Aside from the rentals, the retail shop has plenty of great stuff to chose from if you're looking to buy any clothing or equipment.

Would definitely recommend!
