Les Deux Alpes boasts a unique landscape of mountain pastures surrounded by high alpine peaks. As the main resort of the French Dauphine region, Les Deux Alpes is very popular, offering fantastic snow conditions with one of the largest glaciers in Europe (3568m).
The ski area descends from the summit of La Dome de la Lauze, onto both challenging steep as well as easy gentle slopes. Les Deux Alpes also boasts an enormous vertical drop, an ultra efficient lift system, a new boarder X circuit and one of the best snowparks in the Alps, famous for its pro-rider demos and weekly contests.
The resort is extremely snowsure, as are three different race Stades at different heights, ensuring that the event can be run on the best possible conditions.
Built on a narrow ledge below what were once the high summer pastures of sheep and goat farmers, Les Deux Alpes is one of France’s oldest and more attractive resorts. Its two main streets offer a wide variety of shops and restaurants. Popular activities include snowshoeing, ice-skating and cascading.
Whether it ís visiting the local chocolaterie or creperie in town, or shopping in one of the impressive equipment stores with all the latest gear, Les Deux Alpes is as an impressive winter playground off the slopes as well as on.
