Les Deux Alpes Resort Info
Les Deux Alpes skiing
Les Deux Alpes is a very popular resort with the Brits. It boasts the largest glacier in Europe (at 3568m)allowing for year round skiing. The biggest attraction for boarders and freestyle skiers, and those that like a bit of pro spotting, is the world class snowpark found at the Jandri mid-station during the winter, and up on the glacier during the summer. Beginners and intermediates are well catered for with some nice motorway pistes, although there is only one easy run back down to resort which is sometimes shut when snow is thin on the ground. Advanced skiers should head to the La Fee area for testing black runs and to nearby La Grave for some of the best off-piste around.
Les Deux Alpes ski resort
The resort itself is quite large and spread out, meaning it lacks that "village like" alpine charm. However, it does have a very good range of shops and restaurants, plus varied and lively nightlife. For non skiers, the hamlet of Venosc with its craft shops and cute eateries is walkable when there's not too much snow, or can be reached by cable car. Childcare is very good, so families are welcomed, but there is a lot of traffic in town, which may put some off.
Overall, a lively resort and very popular with the young freestyle crowd and their followers, with La Grave and the glacier particular pluses and Grenoble Airport only 90 minutes away.

Snow Overview - France (snow news updated 18-Apr-2015)
Following a week of very warm sunshine, clouds moved into France on Thursday, bringing the possibility of some light rain showers later in the day.
The lower slopes have really taken a hit this week and as a result expect some very worn conditions or even closed resort runs. So head high for the best skiing and the most reliable snow conditions. Resorts such as Val Thorens (110/225cm) and Tignes (76/180cm) provide two of the best options at present owing to their high altitude slopes.
Some good skiing is also available at present in the Paradiski area, with both Les Arcs (45/200cm) and La Plagne (10/180cm) reporting good conditions on the upper pistes in particular. The lowest slopes are suffering but the link remains open and both resorts are set to keep their lifts turning until April 26th.
Sadly some fairly heavy rain is forecast over the coming days, providing a wet final weekend for many resorts. The higher slopes (above 2,500m) could see up to 30cm of fresh snow in places over the weekend so head high for the chance of some powder.
European Weather Outlook
The mild air is set to remain over the Alps on Thursday before a weather front arrives during Friday, slightly lowering the freezing level. This is set to sadly bring some heavy rain to slopes below around 2,500m – although expect some local variations. By Saturday colder air should drop the snow level to around 2,000m but the precipitation is set to be lighter. On the upper slopes some good powder is very possible with up to 50cm of new snow expected at altitude during the course of the weekend.
Rain is expected in the Pyrenees this weekend, providing a damp end to the ski season. Some powder is possible on the very highest slopes, but lower down more snow loss is expected.
Glorious sunny weather is forecast in Bulgaria until Saturday, before the temperature drops significantly overnight in to Sunday, accompanied by some light snowfall.
Expect warm and mostly sunny springtime weather in Scandinavia over the weekend and into next week. More clouds are expected in Sweden, with a little light snow possible although there is a good chance of some nice sunny breaks too.
The clouds are set to clear from Scotland during Friday to leave a sunny and warm weekend –perfect for setting up spring snow conditions. This weather pattern is forecast to continue well into next week.
