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.

Tignes Spirit delivered and carried out a fitting service for ten skiers at our chalet in Les Brevieres, and the whole operation took less than an hour! They were brilliantly efficient, knowledgeable and friendly, and, above all, professional.

Two of us had to change our boots and skis for reasons unconnected to our fitting, and again, the people who helped us in the shop were fantastically helpful, which made our diversion from the slopes as short and painless as possible.

If you’re skiing in Tignes, and need to rent equipment, I can wholeheartedly recommend Tignes Spirit!

Oh! And their equipment is top notch, too!

Rented equipment back in Jan 2022, for about 14 people, skis, boots, poles and because the size of the group Tignes Spirit, came to our chalet for sizing, delivery and pickup. Cant say enough about the people that came out to the chalet with everything including optional equipment. They were professional, friendly and very accommodating, same with the staff in the shop when we wanted to switch somethings. Highly, Highly recommend Tignes Spirit if you need to rent premium ski gear in great shape. Could not have been happier with the service.

Seamless service from uk and in Tignes . Great communication , no question to small or silly (we asked a lot because we’d never rented before . Website was easy to use too.

We had a problem with one of our beginner boards being damaged but it was swapped no questions asked. They provide a delivery and end of holiday collection service which was great value for a tenner … can’t fault them at all.

Tignes Spirit is the best ski rental service that I have found in over 30 years of skiing in the alps. Their ski stock is second to none and is coupled with real expertise and determination to match you to the correct skis for your experience and skiing aims. Their after sales service is also excellent. Throughly recommended

We use Tignes Spirit on a regular basis and would definitely recommend them to friends and family. They kitted our teens out with great ski and boots, and we also used them to hire some avalanche kit for an off piste lesson. Friendly and professional with great service.

Fantastic shop and top service for ski / board hire

Tignes Spirit has a really well selected range of ski and snowboard gear for on an off the slopes. They sell a good range of cool brands ( the hip staff of the coolest bar in Tignes recommended the shop for new kit!). They also have their own brand of sweatshirts etc in a massive range of colours.

We rental experience was first class for myself as an adult and my two teenages, we tried several pairs of boots and the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. A good choice of kit and competitive prices.

I also bought a pair of ski boots and would highly recommend the expertise on skis / boots/ boards and the boot moulding and fitting service.

I will be going back

I have used Tignes Spirit (and Val Spirit) for many years for ski hire for myself, my family and friends. Over the years we have always had really helpful and friendly service with our hire. The delivery is always flexible to cope with changes in arrival times due to traffic or snow and there is an ability to change kit at any time if needed - indeed the staff ring to check all is well.

On this occasion, my 18 year old daughter had an issue with one ski - the front metal protector worked loose and lost a screw, so we took the skis to the shop in Lavachet (my first time in their shop) and they repaired it while we waited; they also waxed the skis so they were great for my her and made her even faster than her Father (thanks Tignes Spirit perhaps you can slow them next time!!)

It is so sad that yet again the COVID pandemic has stopped UK tourists to Val and Tignes as the staff are once more going to lose much of the business. I wish them all well and hope to see them again once the border is re-opened.

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.

Having recently returned from a holiday in Tignes, I just wanted to thank all the staff at Tignes Spirit in Tignes le Lavachet. My daughter got new boots, I had mine adjusted, my husband hired skis and I had my skis serviced. Every member of staff was patient, knowledgable, kind, and genuinely wanted to get the fittings and service right. It made a huge difference to our holiday - I had no idea my skis could feel so responsive - I've never had so much fun! Thanks to all of you :-)
