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 30-Mar-2015)
Thursday 26th March was a mostly cloudy day across the French Alps, with the best chance of brightness for the southern resorts. Elsewhere some light snow fell overnight, with the most being on the upper slopes as the milder air led to a wintry mix falling lower down.
For the best sunny skies on Thursday, the southern Alps and resorts such as Isola 2000 (125/175cm) and Foux d’Allos (46/157cm) provided the best bet. Some new snow was recorded here earlier this week, leading to some good ski conditions across the mountain. Expect some slushier conditions lower down and the odd bare patch as the recent warm weather has reduced the snow depth somewhat.
Thick clouds were covering the Portes du Soleil on Thursday, with resorts such as Avoriaz (120/270cm), Chatel (65/165cm) and Morzine (25/110cm) remaining socked in. Some light dustings of snow were recorded at these resorts, but the tricky visibility led to some difficult skiing conditions.
Resorts with the very highest slopes were fortunate to see sunshine, but only above around 2,800m. For example, the Pic Blanc above Alpe d’Huez (78/170cm) was bathed in sunshine, as was the Roche de Mio above La Plagne (15/155cm).
Sunnier skies are forecast for Friday, but don’t expect brilliant blue skies as the clouds are not far away. These are set to return on Saturday and are set to bring 15-40cm of snow on Sunday with a freezing level of around 1,800m.
European Weather Outlook
The Alps are currently in a very unsettled spell of weather, with rain, snow and sun all being seen in the past few days. This is expected to continue over the weekend, with the best chance of brightness in the eastern and southern Alps on Saturday. More snow is expected for the northern Alps on Sunday/Monday, with between 20 and 50cm forecast across a wide area and possibly more in some favoured spots in Austria. Watch out as the freezing level is set to rise to between 1500-2000m, so rain may fall lower down.
Mostly sunny and settled weather is forecast for the Pyrenees, with some prolonged spells of warm sunshine expected over the weekend. Temperatures are set to rise slightly above freezing at mid-mountain level, but will rise further next week – potentially hitting double digits on Tuesday.
Unsettled weather is forecast for Bulgaria, with snow expected on the upper slopes of all featured resorts. Some big totals of more than 50cm can be expected, but sadly lower down rain is likely to fall.
Following a sunny Friday, more snow is forecast for Scandinavia over the weekend, potentially bringing a further 10-20cm to go with Thursday’s snowfall. Western Norway in particular is looking very snowy next week.
Snow is also in the forecast for Scotland, with snowfall likely every day heading into next week. The heaviest falls are set for the west coast but the east will not miss out either, hopefully bringing enough snow to reopen Glenshee and The Lecht.
