Les Deux Alpes is a high altitude, lively resort offering a big ski area with a great variety of terrain. This place has an excellent snow record and long hours of sunshine, making it a popular choice. The resort itself lies in the centre of the valley with immediate access to the slopes in all directions.

 

Excellent beginner slopes near the resort itself and on the glacier give great terrain for linking those first turns, while enjoying the superb views at the same time. For the more established rider, there are plenty of red and black runs as well as legendary off piste at 'La Grave' when the conditions are right. For the freestylers, there is a park and a half pipe.
