    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-Jan-2017)

    Monday 16th of January was the first week of skiing since the significant snowfalls that happened towards the end of last week and over the weekend. The weather across Europe cleared to reveal some considerably snowier mountains. Everyone has been talking about the snow in the Alps, but it’s the Pyrenees where things are really kicking off. If you were in the area and looking for some great off-piste, you could do worse than head to The Grand Tourmalet area, where Bareges/La Mongie (100/180cm) is being dumped on yet again - 30cm, maybe more, to fall today. Most of the resort will have to be hiked, however, as only 5 lifts are open. Cauterets (80/160cm), on the other hand, has had so much snow it was unable to open – up to 80cm today alone. Over in the Alps things have really got going in the La Plagne area with loads of new snow recently. There are now 64 lifts open in the area. We may have given Charmousse (55/80cm) a bad rap for their slow start to the season, but it’s time to turn that frown upside down and give credit where it’s due - most lifts were open today and there was some good powder skiing under blue skies. Flaine (50/230cm) and the rest of the Grand Massif are looking in really good shape thanks to huge amounts of new snow. Links between the resorts are finally open there. Valmorel (75/95cm) is another resort that looks much improved thanks to 45cm of fresh snow – certainly worthy of a shout out. Loads of new lifts were open in La Clusaz (50/130cm) today, where there was plenty of powder off-piste. The best area of all has to be Chamonix (40/150cm). All resorts in the area are incredible options at moment. All lifts are now open in les Houches (40/150cm) and the Vallorcine (40/80cm) area is now open for skiing. If you happen to be skiing in France this week, well you couldn’t have timed it any better.

    European Weather Outlook

    It appears that the well overdue but all together sensational current storm cycle is drawing to a close. Metres of snow have fallen in the past week and it appears the winter season has finally had the reboot it needed, however the next change is upon us. The next 48 to 72 hours will see the last tiny amounts of snow fall from the sky before strong sunshine returns. From Wednesday morning skiers and riders can expected to wake up to sunny clear skies and dry conditions, not matter where you are in the European Alps. Sunny conditions will remain in place everywhere right though until Sunday the 22nd. If you’re skiing Europe next week, don’t fret. It is still far too early to forecast how conditions will be beyond the 22nd. In the Pyrenees, Andorra is currently experiencing sensational snowfalls. After an excellent weekend the next 36 hours should see around 30cm of fresh. Beyond this window expect mostly sunny conditions until the weekend. In far north Scandinavia expect a continuation of current conditions with a mix of sun, cloud and light snowfall.
