With a year around snowsure glacier and some of the best off-piste skiing in the Europe, it easy to see why it is so popular with families. You can explore over 220km of piste, that's 96 total; 17 (18%) beginner; 45 (47%) easy; 22 (23%) intermediate; 12 (12%) difficult. The resort is known as being ‘upside down’ because some of the easiest runs and beginner slopes are found higher up the mountain while the harder slopes run into the village. This is just one thing that makes Les Deux Alpes so unique.

If you are looking to relax and soothe your muscles after a long day on the mountains, your six-day lift pass also entitles you to entry to the outdoor heated swimming pool and ice rink. Perfect for all the family to enjoy. Once your batteries are recharged, there’s a great selection of bars to enjoy some apres ski. Anything from friendly pubs, sports bars, clubs and a couple of quiet, more traditional après venues.

Feeling hungry? Les Deux Alpes offers a huge range of mountain and resort restaurants where you can treat yourself to a variety of world cuisines.

What's Happening

Les Deux Alpes has talked about this idea for 30 years, but it seems to be happening in 2021 and 2023. An 18-pylon gondola will link Les Deux Alpes with Alpes d'Huez, making it one of biggest ski areas in the world! A giant three-resort area (Les Deux Alpes, La Grave, Alpes d'Huez) with three glaciers. What more would you want!

Pistes in Les Deux Alpes

Skiing in Les Deux Alpes is suited for abilities. For beginners, the village runs are wide, gentle and southwest facing, giving first-timers plenty of time to practice their turns. The very easy slopes on the glacier mean that even beginners can experience the atmosphere at high altitude. The Glacier du Mont de Lans offers less challenging skiing at an altitude of up to 3,570m - the glacier is dominated by blue runs, however, there is access to the off-piste area of La Grave. Experts can revel in the extensive off-piste opportunities. And there are the renowned blacks of nearby Alpe d’Huez to tackle too.

Our favourite runs at Les Deux Alpes

Offers everything from really almost flat up to nearly a blue run, allowing fast progression without having to trek for miles.

Blue

best skied earlier on in the day though as it gets quite congested when everyone is heading back to resort at the end of the day.

Red

A long and enjoyable run for intermediate ability. Come here when it has just snowed and enjoy the fresh powder on the side of the piste.

Black

Fans of moguls, steep and bumpy runs, this is for you. But don't fall as you are right underneath the chair where everyone can see you.
