As one of France’s oldest ski resorts, and boasting the largest skiable glacier in Europe, Les Deux Alpes continues to be a popular destination for those on skiing holidays and here are a few reasons why.
Great for all abilities
Whether you’re a beginner or class yourself as an expert, Les Deux Alpes has an excellent mixture of slopes to keep a mixture of capabilities amused. From the slopes on the glacier, which are perfect for those starting out, to the legendary off-piste runs of La Grave, there’ll be no need to worry about inexperience or the possibility of the pistes not challenging more experienced skiers.
Those looking to go on a ski holiday for singles in 2015, will more than likely seek a destination with a buzzing social scene, and Les Deux Alps is certainly no exception. With more than 30 bars and clubs for those staying in the resort to enjoy, it’s the perfect place to meet new people and have a lot of fun in the process. Aside from this, there’s also bowling, a skating rink and an ice grotto to explore.
Efficient lift system
Les Deux Alpes has 53 lifts in total, which offer access to 92 marked pistes, as well as 765 hectares of off piste and 25km of cross country ski trails. Lifts are open in summer and autumn as well as in winter, and the majority are open between 9.15am and 16.30pm. Operating four types of lifts – button tow, chair, télécabine and téléphérique – you’ll find getting around Les Deux Alpes a breeze.
Previously receiving a rave review from the Daily Express, Les Deux Alpes is well known for its delicious French cuisine served in a variety of the resort’s excellent restaurants. Serving local French specialities such as cheese fondue and meat platters, there’s all a skier could possibly need when refuelling after a busy day on the slopes. From those boasting large sun terraces such as La Toura to traditional mountain restaurants, a variety of different dining experiences can be enjoyed during a skiing holiday here.
Not only does Les Deux Alpes offer the above four points, but it is also has a reputation for being great value for money, offering affordable skiing in a lively and colourful resort.
