Les Deux Alpes

Gobsmacking views of Mont Blanc aren’t the only bonus of the glacier - this ‘upside down’ ski resort is one of the most snow sure in the Alps, so much so that you can ski here in the summertime. Much loved for its après ski, the town's main strip is bursting with some of the best bars in the mountains.

Les Deux Alpes Resort

Grenoble is the closest airport with a transfer time of just under 2 hours, making the resort really accessible by road. The resort was first used for skiing as early as 1925, when the first ski tow was erected. Unfortunately, this rather Neanderthal piece of equipment fell down a mere 15 minutes after the opening ceremony! The “Les Deux Alpes”, as we know it today, was established in 1946. It is commonly assumed that the name is derived from the two mountains on either side of the town, when in reality the name stems from the two towns on either side of the settlement: Mont De Lans and Venosc. The resort is really compact and you will find most of the entertainment on the main strip, Avenue de la Muzelle, with a variety of hotels and apartments dotted about in-between a vast array of shops, restaurants and bars. Most of the chalets can be found, tucked away, towards the Venosc end. There is lift access to the main side of the mountain and the smaller Vallee Blanche, as well as a free bus shuttle service that runs throughout the day, meaning that you’re never too far from a lift or any of the amenities at your disposal.

The instalment of a 6 man chairlift, the “Diable” has really helped to ease congestion as it offers a much quicker way to get up the mountain than the Jandri Express, which can be quite busy first thing. The standard ski pass covers the whole mountain, as well as giving you some days to try out the neighbouring resorts. There is a walker’s pass available for non-skiers and you can purchase passes on a day to day basis. If you aren’t doing much skiing, then the Venosc village is accessible via a cable car. It is a nice place to escape to, with lots of quaint regional shops and restaurants to visit.

Skiing/BoardingSkiing in Les Deux Alpes

There are plenty of beginner slopes on the front face with runs like les Vikings and Les Gentianes for those learning to ski. The great thing about LDA is that there are some terrific beginner slopes higher up the mountain so new skiers can really experience the benefits of skiing at altitude. The Cretes area at 2100m is the favourite spot for ski schools, with the Ski Escalator a welcome aid to those learning to ski. A top tip for beginners is to either ski the green back to resort early or opt for the gondola – it can get pretty chopped up and crowded towards the end of the day.

Intermediates have loads of mountain to explore, with 63 of the 93 runs rated either blue or red. The wide signal blue run that swoops down from the top of the Jandri Express is ideal for practising carving early in the week. For something a little more challenging, the Fee sector has a couple of lovely reds, which are well sheltered from the wind.

The front face of the main mountain has plenty of tricky terrain for the more advanced skiers. Further up the mountain, Bellecombes 5, which comes directly under the chairlift, is a tough little mogul field that will give you a real buzz. The off-piste options here are fantastic, especially when there’s good powder snow (we love the Clot de Chalance). If you’re really looking for extreme skiing, a trip to the neighbouring resort of La Grave is an absolute must.

Boarders have definitely come to the right place - the off-piste here is a major bonus and there aren’t too many flat spots to cause concern. Freestyle Land up at the Toura has everything a freestyler could ever want including a fantastic slope style section with rails and boxes at the top and a selection of kickers ranging from big to huge!

Les Deux Alpes Apres Ski

You don’t have to look far to find good après in L2A. The best place to start has to be the Panoramique bar, known as Pano bar to the locals. This slopeside restaurant, based at 2,600m really comes alive between 3pm and 5pm every day with a DJ set that will vibrate through your whole body. At the bottom of the piste, Umbrella bar is a great place to keep the party going. If you want to take the night further then Smithy’s is the place to go, with great modern music as well as a few nights of live entertainment. Those looking to party ‘til the early hours should head to Avalanche or Bresilien nightclub if you want to party with the locals.

There are around 50 restaurants with a wide variety of menus including pizzerias, creperies, fast food, tex mex and traditional French cusine. Chalet Mounier is rated the finest restaurant in the Isere region of France and has a Michelin star to its name to prove it. Right beside Chalet Mounier is the lovely Alisiers restaurant that has all the traditional French treats such as fondue and raclette, as well as a range of fresh fish dishes. For tex mex, Smokey Joes and Smithys have a great selection of burgers and ribs. Le Takeaway is the fast food place of choice and Crepes a Go Go is a lovely little creperie. Up the mountain, Le Toura serves a great selection of pizzas to keep you going on the slopes.

The town offers plenty to do off the piste. Your lift pass gives you access to the local outdoor pool, which - don’t worry - is heated! Next to this is the ice rink that also offers bumper car racing on selected nights that kids will love. Skidooing and parapenting are on offer for the adrenaline seekers amongst you but if that isn’t your ticket then you can get a cable car down to the sleepy village of Venosc and browse the quaint local shops.

Best time to ski Les Deux Alpes

When is the best time to ski Les Deux Alpes?

The Les Deux Alpes season runs from Mid-December to the end of April. The glacier is one of the best in the Alpes and it almost guarantees snow till the end of the season. The snow is so good here that you can ski in the summer above 2800m from June to August. The resort has a really good lift system which means the queues that can hamper some ski resorts in peak season aren’t too much of a problem here, especially once you get above 2100m.

January and February can be quite chilly, so layer up! The snow is fantastic at this time of the year and so if you want the best chance at fresh powder this is the time to come. If you like the sun, come in March and April when there are often cheap deals towards the end of the ski season. This is a fantastic place to ski later in the season as the high altitude preserves the snow really well and ensures that you will often still find winter snow conditions up on the glacier.

The ski area is made up of slopes that face N, S, E and W, so whatever the weather; there will always be somewhere that you can find some great conditions. Snow cannons on the front face of the mountain helps to keep the snow fresh on the lower slopes so that you can ski from top to bottom.

It was our first occasion there, my wife and I have both skied a few times, probably about 10 times each. I was skiing and my wife was ‘ironing’ - there’s an array of different slopes with the glacier at the top and one week is probably a good enough time to do a full explore. The ski park just below the gla... + more

The nightlife is really good and it’s an absolutely great place for groups. The Polar Bear bar is pretty cool and there was another pub that was just like the pub we have at home, where you can get a good fry up in the mornings. They have English sport there on Sky and you can watch sport in the Polar Bear too... + more

This was my first time in Les 2 Alpes and I’m pretty sure it won’t be the last. For me, it ticked all the boxes.

We thoroughly enjoyed 2 Alpes. The conditions were so good (mid March) apart from one cloudy day at the beginning of the week. We loved the extensive skiing and never had any problems with the ski lifts (they’re all electronic now anyway). One of my friends had private lessons and found the instructors very... + more

Loved Les 2 Alpes. We lucked out big time with the weather, it had snowed really heavily for the 4 days before we came, dumped on the first day and then we had sunshine. People were saying that it was the best week of the season. The ski area has a good mix with something for everyone. The gradings are quite ha... + more

We stayed here later in the season (3 or 4 weeks into March) so it was lovely and warm but the snow was a little bit iffy towards the bottom. It’s a massive resort with lots of skiing available up high at the glacier (great views), so we still had a good time – it was just the runs back down to the town and t... + more

I really liked 2 Alpes as a resort although we weren’t so lucky with the weather – we had lots of white outs and then on the one really sunny day everyone had been hoping for, it was so windy the lifts weren’t open. It’s hard to get off the mountain as you either have to do a pretty scary black or a reall... + more

I’ve covered a lot of resorts but hadn’t skied Les 2 Alpes before, it was our first time back on the slopes for a while and 2 Alpes was perfect for that. We were blessed as we arrived 4 hours after the dump that made the national news when it snarled up the Alps on Boxing Day, we had an amazing bus driver who... + more

Liked Les Deux Alpes although had to use a green track a lot to get across to main lifts and get back in the afternoon as chalets are out of the centre; however the blue to and from the end of the road was one of the best runs on the resort after fresh snow as they left it open but un-pisted so I was able to ma... + more

We had really good weather at the beginning of the week with some fresh snow overnight, then it got warmer towards the end of the week (visited early March). The only thing we didn’t like about the ski area was that it’s quite flat in places on the connections – thankfully none of us were snowboarders as the... + more

I had my stag do here, Les 2 Alpes is a wicked resort, the best I’ve been to (Val Thorens, Tignes, Alpe d’Huez). We liked that it’s a proper town. We had loads of good places to go out, there’s no big club but we definitely had enough places to go and it was rammed in some places. We had bluebird condit... + more

The Friday was a bit foggy but apart from that the weather was beaming. I absolutely loved L2A and a couple of guys I was with said it’s just as good as Chamonix and other resorts. It was my second week skiing so I was almost a complete beginner… I was on reds by the end of the week so I would recommend the a... + more

It makes such a difference now that they’ve built the new blue run, the resort has been opened up to so many people. We had a mix of complete beginners and gung ho skiers, and it was great.

I’d definitely say this is a good place for beginners. The ski instructors were really friendly and helped me through the ups and downs of learning to ski on the first few days!

With most French resorts, there was nothing there before skiing came along, whereas in Austria they used to be agricultural alpine farms and then skiing came which mean the skiing isn’t as well orientated.

We went on the second from last week in January which was excellent because there was no one there – I think it was just after all the kids had gone back to school.

I didn’t go off piste but the on piste skiing is good, there are a lot of wide blues so even people who are not that great an get the lifts to the top and go all the way down.

Ben was learning to ski so it was good for him as the blues are up at the top, so he wasn’t stuck at the bottom of the ski area.

We liked Les 2 Alpes, it was a little busy but we pretty much had blue skies all week and the area of town we stayed in (we booked Hotel Serre Palas which I’d 100% recommend) was very quiet in the evenings.

Personally, not having any easy runs back to the resort was a shame… there is a green but it’s horrendously narrow and slushy (even my ski instructor said she wouldn’t take it).

Les 2 Alpes is really different to your usual ski resort. It’s a big town that’s long and linear along the valley. For real beginners, a word of minor caution, the 2 Alpes is a bit weird as the mountain isn’t a normal mountain shape with the point at the top. All the beginner stuff is at the top and the run... + more

It’s great! Good skiing. It’s an upside-down resort so there were easier runs up at the top.

There was loads of good off-pis... + more

Our first time in Les Deux Alpes and we had a really good time. There wasn’t snow at the base but because of the glacier we had great conditions higher up.

Had a lovely week apart from the fact that the snow was lacking!

It was late in the year and 21 degrees while we were here. We sunbathed a lot and snowboarded in T-shirts.

The skiing was good and the town itself was nice, I had a really good week. It’s a big enough town if you’re looking for restaurants and bars. It does get really cold and windy up at the top (it was -20 when we were there!) which is the only negative of the skiing here. + more

Les Deux Alpes isn’t Meribel/Val d’Isere/Lech, but then it doesn’t pretend to be. It’s not a particularly up-market or charming resort, but we liked it.

The ski area is really good for snowboarding and has plenty of decent off piste. Deux Alpes is a nice place but lacked a bit of après ski.

Families in Les Deux Alpes

Families have a great choice of activities in resort, including ice skating, horse rides and swimming. There are a number of different ski schools to choose from and excellent childcare facilities and childcare is also available in some of our hotels. Make sure you book ski lessons and childcare well in advance for peak dates. We have chalets, hotels and apartments that are suitable for children so you can pick and choose, depending on how much you want to relax! The ski area has plenty of beginner lifts and the Crete area at 2100m offers a great central meeting point for adults to pick up their children from ski school. The resort is very Brit friendly, so there are usually plenty of other children for your kids to make friends play with. Book one of our accommodations near the piste, like the Aalborg Hotel, which is also situated very close to the ski school meet point, so that you won’t have to carry your children’s skis round the resort. Give us a call to find out about the best accommodation if you want to avoid the centre of town and noisy nightlife so that you can get the kids to sleep! If you fancy a night out and your accommodation doesn’t have babysitting facilities then have a look at our Les Deux Alpes childcare page to find someone to take care of your children.

GroupsGroup Holidays Les Deux Alpes

Les Deux Alpes is a great resort for groups as there is plenty of variety in the ski area to suit any ability level. The nightlife is a big draw, with plenty of choices of bars to keep everyone happy. There are things for non-skiers to explore as well such as the Venosc Village and you can go snowshoeing on the Vallee Blanche side of the mountain. There is lots of variety in terms of chalets that cater to different group sizes depending on what you’re looking for. Talk to us and we can help you find ski in ski out accommodations and hotels and apartments that are centrally located so that you can experience the town on your doorstep. Look out for group discounts and great late deals. Book a large chalet with sole occupancy and have the place to yourselves or persuade a few more people to tag along so you can save money. SNO have special deals for both large and small groups. If you don’t know how big your group is going to be, then hotels are often a great option as there are more rooms available.
