So what's it like?
Varied high mountain pistes with lively and varied nightlife
Les Deux Alpes ski resort ranks amongst the highest in Europe with a good mix of ski slopes suitable for all levels. There is an excellent ski school for beginners and for the more advanced there is some exhilarating off-piste; it is well worth hiring a guide for a trip to the off-piste mecca, La Grave. Off the slopes Les Deux Alpes has a lively atmosphere, an excellent variety of shops, an outdoor pool and ice rink and a myriad of lively bars and restaurants.
The village runs are wide, gentle and south facing. The very easy slopes on the glacier mean that even beginners can experience the atmosphere at high altitude.
A perfect resort for go-for-it intermediates, who should be able to cover almost the whole area of marked pistes. The upper slopes provide optimum practice, with good quality snow and gentle runs.
Experts can revel in the extensive off-piste opportunities. Further possibilities include the renowned blacks of nearby Alpe d’Huez; go for the pose and get there by helicopter! Also the entirely off-piste area of neighbouring La Grave is worth a visit.
