The Ski Resort

Since Les Deux Alpes is a mere one hour drive from Grenoble international airport, getting there is fairly uncomplicated for winter vacationers. It´s one of the most frequented and major ski resorts in France. It revolves around the majestic mountain La Meije (3983 m). Thanks to the drop of 3.600 meters (11811 ft), the resort invites well into the summer and doesn´t primarily focuses on the winter season.

Les Deusx Alpes vast terrain seems to be endless as it stretches over nothing less than 225 kilometers (139 miles) of skiing trails by featuring runs for all levels and abilities. With ample beginner-friendly terrain in the valley or green marked trails (really easy!) throughout the ski resort you will have more than enough room to spread out and test your skills. Petites Crêtes is one of the mountains that is considered to be ideal for beginners. Once you found your ski legs you can go and check out the area of Vallèe Blanche. It is usually pretty quiet back here, and the lines are short for the blue and red slopes to practice almost by yourself.

Intermediate skiers find great trails everywhere in the resort. The broad range of ski slopes ensure that there´s no time for boredom. Experts should definitively ski the black Diable runs, Bellecombe slope and Valentin run to find their personal challenges.

Don´t miss out on the huge terrain park ´2 Alpes Freestyle Land´ that presents itself as big playground for young and old fresstylers. It definitively fulfills the expectations far beyond the common standards by boasting a slopestyle, boardercross, an airbag and a large superpipe apart from the usual obstacles.

If you decide on a ski pass for longer than 6 days you are also free to access the ski resorts Alpe d’Huez, Serre Chevalier and Sestriere.
