Owner description: 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.

Kept in touch, delivered all skis to the door, pleasant to the kids, minimum fuss. Prices in pounds so you know where you are.

A firm favourite, this place is the only place in Tignes worth getting skis and snowboards from. Great service and decent equipment.

I had my skis serviced at Tignes Spirt. It was great value for money & they were really helpful with advice.
I would use again.

We always use Tignes Spirit for our ski hire when we are in Tignes. They have a great and very personal service, always happy to help and change equipment if it isn't right. They dropped us back to the chalet when our equipment was fitted and came to pick it up at the end of the week. Good value and we were lucky enough to have equipment that was hardly used or even new in some instances. Just after we were fitted out 150 army personnel arrived for fitting but this didn't seem to phase the guys at Tignes Spirit!

I was very happy with the ski's provided. While I was in store, one of your colleagues suggested another pair, as he felt that these would allow me to turn more easier.

My firends and I, were also taken back to our chalet, which was very thoughtful, and had our ski's collected on our last day.

I hope to come back to Tignes, and would come to you again. Thought the ski's were in good condition, and that they were good value.
