    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 24-Feb-2017)

    Thursday 23rd of February was yet another sunny day in France. The general story is of hard packed slopes up high and where the most traffic is but soft, spring like conditions on resort runs. Overall, conditions are very variable on piste. Off piste skiing is limited at the moment due to the warm temperatures and a lack of new snow but looking at the weather forecast, this could all be set to change. Some of the best conditions in France can be found in Les Arcs (48/152cm). Slopes, especially at the top, are well groomed and grippy. They can be hard in places, especially with the amount of holiday traffic, but remain very good overall. Conditions were also good in Montgenevre (150/260cm) where slopes were wel-groomed. They were packed and grippy in the morning but softened up throughout the day. The snow line has been visibly receding in the Chamonix (20/200cm) area recently. Strong sunshine today means that slopes lower day are softening up fast. Up high, however, slopes can be hard packed but are still ultimately very enjoyable. There were early spring conditions in Morzine (30/50cm) and the rest of the Portes du Soleil today. When the slopes begin to soften up, head to Avoriaz (80/110cm) for the best snow.

    European Weather Outlook

    It has been a tough week all over the Alps recently with heavy rain, warm temperatures and strong sunshine all negatively impacting snow quality. However, a change is coming and the early signs of its arrival are visible already. Cloud cover will gently increase throughout today as much needed fresh snow and cold temperatures move in tonight. Tomorrow will see cloudy snowy conditions all over the Alps with light to moderate snowfalls expected. The freezing level will quickly drop which means it will snow all the way down to the valley floor. Beyond this sudden change Saturday will bring slightly warmer temperatures by the afternoon with Sunday being a mostly sunny day. A large snow storm is currently is forecast to bring very heavy snowfalls to the Alps next week. It would seem winter is returning from its brief summer vacation, and not a moment too soon. In the Pyrenees a mostly sunny weekend is ahead, no significant snowfall is expected before Tuesday 28th. In far north Scandinavia a slight change to the normal pattern of dull overcast weather. Moderate snowfalls are expected over the next few days. Powder days are unlikely but certainly enough to create excellent on piste conditions.
