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.

    Excellent service
    Visited Tignes with my daughter and she had new boots fitted. Excellent service. Sorted her out with quality rental skis not the usual 2 year old knackered skis. Quality kit at a decent price.

    The best ski shop I've ever seen!
    From minute one of contacting Kieran of Tigne Spirit i have been so impressed. The shop is located about a 10 minute walk outside the main centre of 2100 Le Lac - but the walk is worth every single second! From the first point of walking in the shop we were all shown the highest level of customer care and attention. The whole team are focussed on making sure that you have the best time, best and most perfectly fitted equipment possible. The after care is the same. We've had a couple of damage issues through accidents and they have sorted it with incredible service. I've skied for 25 years plus and I can say that I have never had such an amazing service. If you are skiing in Tigne you have to go to this shop. Thank you Tigne Spirit - I cannot recommend them highly enough.

    Tignes Spirit ski hire
    My transfer was late but still managed to get skis in time for first lifts. Skis were the model I requested and brand new as were boots. Staff were helpful knowledgeable and friendly as well as interested on my return of equipment how I found it. Location is easy to find right next door to the supermarket - tignes isn’t huge a 10 min walk or 2 mins on the free bus. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend anyone hiring equipment here - they also stacked a lot of skis and ski gear.

    Great ski hire
    Cannot fault Tignes Spirit for responding to a rental request early evening pre-season. Skis were delivered and fitted within 20 minutes of enquiry, by people very knowledgeable about the equipment, skiing and the resort. Spirit equally efficient on pick up at end - always gave clear communication and met their commitments. So easy to deal with.

    Great service and equipment
    Tignes Spirit provides a great service and customer care. Open to 11pm on Saturday they picked us from our apartment to fit the boots and skis and dropped us off again. Lots of communication during our stay to check we were all ok. English speaking and incredibly helpful.

    Outstanding!!
    Absolutely outstanding service from beginning to end. A group of 10 family members ranging from 10 yrs old to 73 yrs old all needing ski equipment. We received excellent help with every small detail from the staff in the shop. Nothing was too much trouble and all done with lots of chatting and advice. The communication from the shop was outstanding. I had check in phone calls before my holiday, the day I arrived, during the holiday and at the end. Highly recommend 10/10

    These boots were made for skiing!
    We booked this due to staying at Apex2100 and the discount associated. Glad we did because whilst it saved money the team in Tignes Spirit certainly didn't scrimp on service. Very attentive and personable making the whole process relaxed and enjoyable as ski hire can be a pain (on a number of levels) and my daughters first choice of boots were to tight which was greeted by no problem I have just the boot for her. The young man that served us was brilliant and we left looking forward to our week of skiing... Not the same in some of the others ski hire in Tignes. Will book here every time in the future.

    Friendly and informative staff.
    I needed a new helmet. Thinking I would have to shop around I started at Tignes Spirit first. The advice and support I received was great, the selection was good and the price was right. No shopping around needed. Purchased and very happy. Thank you.

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.

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.

We were fitted out in our chalet the evening we arrived and the equipment was picked up after our last afternoon on the slopes. Couldn't fault, They rang the next day to check all was okay and two small issues on binding adjustments were sorted out as soon as they were reported. They were happy to exchange one of our party's snowboard for skis after one fall on the backside too many.
I was very happy with the equipment and with the excellent customer service. I wouldn't hesitate using them again if we are in Tignes or Val D'isere. Thanks :)

I have used Tignes Spirit before when I’ve stayed in Tignes Le Lac and been very happy with their service but this time we were staying in Val Claret and took advantage of their delivery option (small charge) and I’m again 100% happy with their service. I continue to use Tignes Spirit as I can always guarantee I’ll not only get good service but also the skis I request if I need something specific. (I’ve found it’s always difficult as a woman getting ski’s for off piste from main stream stores!) They also offer great advice if you don’t know what the conditions are like on the mountain and you need help choosing the right equipment. They are open until late at night which was invaluable as we arrived much later than expected due to an horrendous transfer. Despite the late hour and numerous rescheduled arrival times, all the staff continued to be friendly and helpful and made the process smooth and enjoyable. They are a professional outfit who care that you get the right equipment and they always check you’re happy with your choice afterwards. They offer good value for money and the fact that they are English speaking helps enormously especially when things don’t go exactly to plan! 100% recommend them and will always use them wherever I am in Tignes!

Although I knew that Tignes Spirit was a 15 minute walk from where we were staying (we had Intersport, skiset and a load of others literally on our doorstep) the website prices and gear available seemed to good to pass up. I'm glad I made the trip. Had a great selection of skis to choose from, staff were absolutely ace, skis were waxed with sharp edges with the option of one free swap for different ones however I didn't feel the need. See you guys again!

This is a popular rental location and for good reason. The staff were excellent, really friendly and helpful. Due to a crash on the main road, we were severely delayed on our transfer from the airport but the shop stayed open very late for us and others arriving that day. We hired skis then later in the week snowboards as well and they were happy to be flexible with our arrangements. When there was a problem with one of the boards, a technician came out to the slope to replace it - great service!

I had an incredible experience at Tignes Spirit. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly and greeted us quickly when we entered the shop. We rented boots and snowboards. The service was fantastic , even though we had not pre-booked the equipment (and for ease I recommend that you do, to help the shop) they did not stop searching for boots until they had a pair that were comfortable, eventually opening a brand new pair.

As well as rentals, the shop has a great selection of high-quality, top brands.

I highly recommend Tignes Spirit.
