Val d'Isere is the older of the two towns and the skiing history dates back to the 1930s. There is a lively nightlife and it is largely regarded as one of the most upmarket ski areas in the world. In contrast, Tignes is a purpose-built resort and while it may not be particularly attractive, it offers everything a skier needs. As you may expect from an area so well known, prices can be particularly expensive, sometimes competing with central London!
