Les Deux Alpes Ski Resort
Les Deux Alpes is a high-altitude resort in France that lays claim to a number of records, including the largest skiable glacier in Europe, as well as the longest fully on-piste vertical available in the world – 2200m.
Beyond these achievements, it's snowsure reputation and impressive off piste terrain make it a firm favourite for British visitors. The resort boasts 200km of on piste terrain, beginners are well catered for, expert skiers can head over to La Grave and the resort is also home to one of the best snowparks in Europe.
The long-rumoured link to Alpe d’Huez appears to finally be coming to fruition and by 2022, the two should be linked by a huge 3S gondola. Numerous other upgrades are expected between now and then with more than €500 million due to be spent on facilities, including two major new chairlifts and a massive upgrade to the Jandri Express.
There is a vast range of accommodation available in the village that stretches for almost 2km along a wide, sunny valley. Off the slopes there is a huge amount to do, including on the après front – this is it is one of the liveliest resorts in France.
