Les Deux Alpes Ski Holidays: The Skiing
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. Beginners and intermediates have plenty of choice for skiing Les Deux Alpes, but should be aware that the level of skiing isn't accurate on the piste map. Firstly, many of the blue runs are quite challenging; secondly, these pistes can get very crowded (particularly at Le Jandri) and finally, the runs back to resort are more difficult than usual.

Les Deux Alpes Ski Holidays: Off the Snow
A skiing holiday in Les Deux Alpes doesn't stop when the lifts close. Despite accusations by some of being the "Blackpool of the Alps", Les Deux Alpes does have a good range of shops and some quality restaurants, plus a varied and very lively nightlife. There are also many other non-skiing activities, including 'Le Tanking Center' for a 'sensory deprivation experience' and the hamlet of Venosc with its craft shops. Childcare is very good, so families are welcomed on a ski holiday in Les Deux Alpes, but there is a lot of traffic in town, which may put some off.

Overall, Les Deux Alpes is a good resort for those who want both good skiing and après-ski, with La Grave and the glacier being particular pluses. Also, Grenoble Airport is only 90 minutes away.
