Let’s concentrate on the essentials instead. Les Deux Alpes has the biggest skiable glacier in Europe. Its top altitude of above 3,500 metres means plenty of snow, even during powder-parched winters elsewhere. Its long season, during which skiers can tackle more than 200 kilometres of marked pistes, runs from early December until late April. Fabulous off-piste runs are also just round the corner; Les Deux Alpes is linked to the legendary ski area of La Grave. Oh, and did we mention the après-ski? It’s a good idea to save some energy for after-dark shenanigans, as the cosy lounges and lively bars might just pave the way to a nightclub or two.
Known simply as 2 Alpes, this is a brilliant destination for groups, families and skiers and boarders of all ages and abilities.
Package holidays to Les Deux Alpes are good value and convenient, as transfers are usually included in the cost of your break – saving you the headache of trying to figure out how to reach the resort from a nearby airport.
