Les Deux Alpes Resort
Les Deux Alpes is a vibrant resort on the doorstep of the Ecrins National park close to the town of Grenoble. The two villages of Les Deux Alpes are linked by a 2km long strip of bars and clubs which give the resort its nickname, ‘Las Vegas of the Alps’. The villages are certainly not as tacky as their nickname suggests and still retain much of their charm. The nightlife does however fulfill its reputation vying for the title of best parties in the Alps. The Les 2 Alpes ski area is also brilliant, with a maximum altitude of 3600m and the largest skiable glacier in Europe it is an excellent snow sure destination.
The ski area has a total of 60 lifts (including the world’s highest funicular and the world’s fastest gondola) which give access to 220km of piste, 1400ha of skiable off piste terrain, Europe’s largest skiable glacier and Europe’s largest snow park! There is a good spread of varied terrain for all ability levels from beginners throught to expert. Therefore it is a fantastic resort for mixed ability groups. Les Deux Alpes is often called an ‘upside down’ resort with harder steeper skiing lower down and wide easy runs higher up on the glacier. It’s a great place to learn where beginners can enjoy the high mountain views and better snow conditions usually reserved for advanced skiers. For the experts there are plenty of challenging pistes with as many black runs as red runs and the off piste is vast and varied including links to the infamous ‘La Grave’ ski area.
