Les Deux Alpes

Les Deux Alpes is one of our most popular destinations in France. As recently as 2015 it won ‘Best Ski Village in Europe’ at the World Snow Awards. It is one of the oldest ski resorts in France, and this is clearly visible in the architecture. It has a blend of old style wooden chalets and new apartment buildings. It also combines this with a number of great bars, restaurants and shops to create a unique French atmosphere.

Skiing in Les Deux Alpes

Les Deux Alpes is a massive ski area that has over 225km of ski slopes. Of this around 162km is made up of blue and green slopes, making it an ideal ski holiday destination for beginners and families. The highest point of the ski area is 3600m, and the presence of a glacier means that it is fairly snow sure through out the whole of the winter season.

The resort

Les Deux Alpes is well known for its après ski. Along with Val Thorens and Val d’Isere it might have the best night lift in the whole of the French Alpes. The resort is split into several different districts. We offer accommodations in the center of Les Deux Alpes and 1650 and Les Deux Alpes 1800.

For non skiers there are plenty of different activities in Les Deux Alpes to keep you busy. There is a large sports center with a swimming pool, ice skating ring and squash courts. You can also try husky sledding, a snow show walk or try the sky walk at the top of the glacier.

Les Deux Alpes

  • One of the most popular winter sports destinations
  • Cosy village with the best après-ski options in France
  • Authentic and cosy atmosphere

Location and surroundings

distance to centre: approx. 300 metres
distance to ski piste approx. 0 metres

distance to ski bus stop approx. 50 metres
distance to ski lift approx. 150 metres

Les Deux Alpes

Les Deux Alpes is a great ski area with 48 lifts and cable cars connecting to approximately 227 km (121 ml) of pistes. The glacier is one of the biggest skiable glaciers in Europe and provides an absolute guarantee of snow. Even in the summer the glacier is a popular skiing spot. Via this glacier there is a connection to the well known resort of La Grave. This resort is renowned for its spectacular off-piste trails. Here you can descend down to 900 meters (3,000 ft). This is a great trail for good skiers and snowboarders, although we do advise you to go with a guide. The descent to La Grave is included with a 6 day (min.) lift pass.

Of course, Les Deux Alpes does not cater exclusively to experienced skiers and boarders. Beginners and intermediates have plenty of options to choose from. There are a few suitable intermediate pistes on the glacier as well. At an altitude of 2600 meters (8,500 ft) there is an extensive snow park with a half pipe, spine, various jumps and a boarder cross where frequent competitions are organised. The construction of the fun park started 10 years ago and it has been getting bigger and better each year! Three years ago it was proclaimed as the best snow park in France and since then even more features have been added.

For cross country skiers there are cross country tracks in the village and in the village of Vénosc. In the company of a guide, you can also take the cross country skiing tracks on the glacier or the off piste cross country skiing tracks.

From both the resort centre and the neighbouring village of Les Deux Alpes 1800 there are different ways to get on the slopes. This means that there are hardly any queues in Les Deux Alpes and since most pistes extend down to the village, you will not have to walk far to your hotel or apartment after a long day on the mountain!

Les Deux Alpes

  • Snow sure, many hours of sunshine and good off-piste possibilities
  • Very popular ski area among snowboarders
  • One of the highest areas in Europe
