Ski Holidays in Les Deux Alpes
Good Snow Conditions, Europe's largest skiable glacier and year round action
One of the highest resorts in France, the historic and charming ski resort of Les Deux Alpes has 220 kms of piste and the lifts in Les Deux Alpes are every few hundred yards, so you are never far away from one.
Ski slopes run down both sides of the ski resort in a high altitude valley joining the 'two alps' of Venosc and Mont de Lans. Les Deux Alpes is ideal for non-skiers, as it gives access to both the glacier and the lower village of Venosc by gondola. A funicular passes through the ice to La Meije glacier (3570 metres) which provides skiing all year round, a great slalom training course and a huge snowpark throughout the summer season also. There are breathtaking views and superb snow conditions, all at a reasonable price.
