Skiing in Les Deux Alpes

Country: France

In a nutshell: A lively town with moderate sized ski area and guaranteed snow with europe's largest skiable glacier

We like:

  • A good party vibe for those looking for lively apres ski
  • High altitude and you’re guaranteed snow with Europe’s largest skiable glacier
  • There’s some great off-piste skiing and is lift linked to the cult off-piste ski resort of La Grave
  • The views of the Ecrins peaks are simply spectacular
  • Snowboarders will love the enormous terrain park (but will hate some of the long flats)

We don’t like:

  • The runs to resort are steep and moguly at the end of the day. Beginners are best taking the gondola down
  • The sprawling town lacks charm
  • The lift network could do with an upgrade

RESORT DESCRIPTION

Les Deux Alpes is sprawling purpose built resort with a high altitude ski resort. The skiing is best suited to intermediates and advanced skiers, and it’s long been a favourite with snowboarders thanks to the excellent terrain park. What it lacks in traditional charm, it more than makes up for with down-to-earth and lively apres ski.

Beginners will love the open runs on the glacier, but will find a Les Deux Alpes ski holiday challenging thanks to the steep and busy runs back to the resort. Intermediates will get the most out of the lift served area, and will love the 2,000m vertical drop of a leg burner all the way from the top of the glacer to Mont de Lans at 1,300m. There is limited challenging skiing on piste, but lots of great off piste skiing for advanced skiers, especially around La Fee. Les Deux Alpes is lift-linked to the freeride Mecca of La Grave – taking a guide is essential.

The town is spread out along the valley and getting around is easy thanks to the resort bus. There are plenty unpretentious bars and restaurants, and the town really comes alive at night. The apres ski is amongst the best and liveliest in France, so for groups wanting to party long after skiing, Les Deux Alpes is a good bet.
