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 28-Apr-2016)

Only ten of our featured resorts in Austria remain open for snowsports on Thursday 28th April, with this weekend set to see further closures. Good late season skiing still available across many resorts, particularly across the high glacial resorts where some good snowfall over the course of the week ensuring that pistes across the upper mountain remain in good condition. The cloud affecting many resorts on Thursday is set to hand around over much of the weekend, with fluctuating temperatures seeing the possibility of some light snow and rain fall during this period.

European Weather Outlook

The Alps is still very much in the grips of winter currently, with fresh snow having fallen across much of Europe over the past week. Further falls are forecast across many regions of the Alps over the coming days, although totals are expected to be much more moderate than previous falls. However, the freezing level is expected to rise over the weekend, with rain falling across the lowers slopes of many resorts as a result. Temperatures will look to return to seasonal norms during the early part of next week, with the sun also set to make an appearance.
