With a glacier at 3600 m, 2 km of vert from peak to resort and some incredible terrain, Les Deux Alpes is a high mountain paradise! The snowparks here are pretty insane as well, it’s a freestylers’ mecca and has an amazing summer park as well, so you can ski on top of the world in July and August as well!
Les Deux Alpes sits at 1650 m and goes up over 3600 m where you can find the largest skiable glacier in Europe, making it pretty snowsure! It boasts around 50 modern and fast lifts servicing over 220 km of marked pistes.
Les Deux Alpes is world renowned for its freestyle playground and freeride areas. Even if you aren’t a seasoned park rat, you can still have a great time here, and it’s a fantastic place to learn something new!
Off the slopes in Les Deux Alpes there are plenty of activities to do. There is an ice rink and swimming pool, which you will have free access to if you have purchased a 6-day ski lift pass (skate hire is extra). There are also other recreational activities such as billiards bowling and a cinema.
For a little more excitement there are plenty of other activities to, such as a helicopter flight or paragliding from where you will experience incredible views of the village and mountains. There is also the chance to go ice caving and snowmobiling.
Best known for having the largest skiable glacier in Europe, Les Deux Alpes also boasts one of the world’s greatest on-piste vertical drops: an exhilarating descent of 2,268 m, rideable non-stop all the way. The resort also has one of the biggest snowparks in the French Alps and offers a wealth of freeride and off-piste potential, yet has acres of easily accessible beginners’ slopes and plenty of off-slope attractions too. This makes it well-suited to most categories of visitors, and an ideal choice for mixed ability groups.
A long-awaited link with neighbouring Alpe d’Huez – the 3 km Oisans Express between Le Cret in Les Deux Alpes and Auris’s Signal de l’Homme in Alpe d’Huez – is currently scheduled to be built ahead of the 2022/23 season. This would make the two resorts’ combined ski area around 470 km, the second biggest in Europe.
The resort is very snowsure due to its glacier skiing. There are also many snow making facilities across the pistes, which contribute to the natural snowfall of the high altitude throughout the season.
