Les Deux Alpes

The Resort: Les Deux Alpes gets its name from the 2 villages and surrounding pistes that it’s made up from. It has the largest skiable glacier in Europe and is France's second oldest ski resort. With long cruisy runs, and as much off-piste and on, there's fun for everyone!

The Pistes: The resort offers 220km of piste with 51 lifts and is known as an upside down resort with the steeper slopes being nearer the lower parts of the mountain and the mellower runs nearer the top. The resort also hosts one of the best snow parks in Europe including a halfpipe & 2 boarder cross courses.

Facilities & Apres-ski: With 9 mountain restaurants and 40 bars and clubs, Les Deux Alpes has a vibrant nightlife and apres scene.
