Now you can enjoy your skiing knowing that the kids are enjoying theirs. Junior Race begins where many ski schools finish and continues through to club, regional, national and international level.

Junior Race is not just about racing. It’s also about developing a sound toolbox of skills along with making ski racing fun.

Junior Race Courses are suitable for all levels from those with little or no racing experience that have outgrown ski school to experienced racers.

“You have had a thoroughly positive impact on my son. He has decided he is going to live in France, work in skiing and of course appear in numerous Olympics! It is an absolute pleasure to see him so fired up and able to identify with something that he feels he can do and aspire to”

“What a difference the Snoworks philosophy of ‘Racing Open’ has made. This along with allowing the freedom for each child to develop their own style has completely changed the way we look at ski racing”

The Tignes glacier is normally open for skiing from the 17th October all the way through to early December when the whole Espace Killy opens up.  Uplift to the glacier is via the Funiculair Perce Neige. Once up you have the Telepherique Grande Motte that opens up the whole glacier. Depending on snow conditions Tignes also has the Vanoise Chairlift and Termignon Drag Lifts (3,500), Rossolin and Champagny that could be operational depending on snow conditions. Unlike many glaciers that are relatively flat, Tignes offers a variety of terrain, more gentle slopes down lower with the steeper slopes up top. Everything you need for a great week’s ski training.


As an autumn resort, Tignes is unbeatable for off snow activities. Around the lake for fitness training. The Lagon has a beautiful swimming pool and wellness centre and Tignes Espace has so much choice from climbing, squash, weights and fitness along with sports hall including badminton and volleyball.
