Les Deux Alpes is hugely popular with British skiers, many of whom are taught the tricks of the trade at the excellent European Ski & Snowboard School. The instructors offer a high standard of tuition to build confidence and ability levels as the week progresses. The village runs are wide, gentle and southwest facing, giving first-timers plenty of time to practice their turns. And 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. And there are the renowned blacks of nearby Alpe d’Huez to tackle too. The entirely off-piste area of neighbouring La Grave is also well worth a visit – ask your resort rep about a guided day trip with the European Ski School.
The Glacier du Mont de Lans offers less challenging skiing at an altitude of up to 3,570m - the glacier is dominated by blue runs, however, there is access to the off-piste area of La Grave. The glacier is accessed by a series of T-bars.
Rack up your mileage with a Ski Away-day to Alpe d’Huez. Just a 40-minute bus ride away from Les Deux Alpes, you’ll get to race down the longest ski run in the world, the Sarenne, appreciate fantastic views from the Grande Rousses mountains and test yourself on the notorious black Tunnel Run. With your Les Deux Alpes 6-day lift pass, you get 2 free days to let loose on these fabulous mountains to slide, carve or freestyle to your heart’s content. Speak to your rep for more details.
There's a huge selection of advanced off-piste terrain in both Saint Christophe and La Grave - the latter is connected to Les Deux Alpes from the peak of the glacier. It's an untamed ski area with one lift and no maintained pistes - perfect for challenging freeskiing. The Grand Couloir chutes are also a great option; the open bowl has three short, steep chutes that all end up underneath the Bellecombes chairlift.
