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 Euope (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 druning 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 12-Mar-2014)
Fantastic sunny weather blesses the French resorts at the start of this week. Excellent snow conditions can still be enjoyed, especially on higher, north facing slopes. Even lower down the snow is still in great shape, although it can become soft by the afternoon.
Cauterets (250/350cm) in the Pyrenees has the deepest snow base of our reported French resorts, both on their lower and upper pistes, with an average base depth of three metres on Monday 10th March.
On Sunday 9th March, the Ski Club Leader in Tignes reported that the on piste snow conditions throughout the resort were excellent and not as busy as last week. In the Three Valleys, the Leader in Meribel said on Sunday ‘the pistes are in great condition and we had really good skiing particularly up Peclet and the Col’.
The forecast this week across France is for the sunny weather to remain, although there could the odd cloudy spell, with a chance of a very light dusting of snow in the Pyrenees.
European Weather Outlook
The weather is forecast to remain mostly sunny across the European resorts this week, although there is some cloudier weather expected on Thursday 13th March. This could deliver fresh snow to Austria and Germany. The temperature is expected to rise for the start of next week with the freezing level expected to sit around 3,000m on Monday 17th March.
