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.

We have used Tignes spirit twice and found them friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Their pricing is competitive but the real clincher for us was that they would deliver to our chalet (we stayed with the Tignes Chalet Company which works closely with Tignes Spirit) and pick up again. On arrival after a 14 hour drive with four children aged 2 to 11, the last thing we'd want to do would be to trudge up to a ski hire shop with all the tired kids to get fitted. Our guy arrived with lots of different options and we did the whole thing in (relative) comfort of our own boot room. Good fit too. Really worth considering, they are a little superior to the Skisets and other big chains.

Cracking service! Really helpful in email and phone conversations. They bring the skis to you at your accommodation at a time convenient to you and collect them from you or will pick you up and bring you to the shop for a fitting if you prefer. They keep in touch and it works really smoothly. The staff are really friendly and chilled, but very knowledgeable and helpful. They have a large selection of good quality, well maintained kit. Will definitely use them again when next in Tignes. Excellent service, would definitely recommend!

After seeing the other reviews, we headed to Tignes Spirit and weren't disappointed. The service was great and I ended up with some top-drawer gear that made all the difference to the trip. Cool music in the shop was an added bonus as was the slick website that lets you specify all your essential dimensions ahead of time. They even collected the gear from the chalet after the final day too :)

We hired ski equipment for my son. The quality of the equipment was excellent, and we found the whole service from delivering skis to collecting at the end of the week exceptional.
We would definitely recommend Tignes Spirit, and would not hesitate to use them again if we find ourselves back in Tignes.

Half the group booked with Intersport, and half Tignes spirit. There was no comparison on service or equipment. I used Tignes Spirit for my first trip in February and again in March and I would only recommend them going forward - awesome job guys thank you :0)
