A beautiful view, sun and snow. If this sounds exactly like what you are after, you should take a closer look at Les 2 alpes in the French Alps.

Les 2 Alpes is located at an altitude of 4,200-11,800 feet and offers glacier skiing at an altitude of 11,800 feet. Freestyle riders from all different parts of the world gather here to train in the two snow parks located on the mountain. Various different "summer camps" for skiers and snowboarders take place here every year.

If you would like to take a break from skiing in Les 2 Alpes for a day, you can jump on a ski bus that will take you to the neighboring town of Alpe d'Huez. Or why not go visit one of the Alps' most famous off-piste areas, La Grave?

When in one of the bars, there is a good chance that you will run into seasonal skiers from Sweden, both during peak season and in the summertime.

Best Off-Piste:
Where do you start? An impossible question to answer for La Grave I’m afraid. There are just so many options to suit all different skiing and boarding tastes. The one definite is that you should take an experienced guide with you.

Best Black Run:
My favourite pisted black run has to be Diable – it has all you really expect from a challenging black run with the pose factor thrown in, and it has to be the steepest easily-accessible powder close to your place in town. All this means you have to get there early!

Best Red Run:
Dome from Dome de Puy Salie across and down the Glacier de Mantel to link up with the laid-back scenic Signal blue.

Best Blue/Green:
Route de la Fee is the answer on this one, taking you all the way down the valley into La Fe. For a very different green option, if you can hack the lifts, get all the way up to Soreiller – surely one of the highest green runs on the planet?!

Can really recommend L2A - here's everything! Good and many slopes, easily accessible offpiste, amazing views and very snow proof. I was there on week 9 2018 and enjoyed this legendary ski resort (second oldest in all of France). Very efficient lift system and a gem that Sweden seems to have missed a little ....

Week 8 2017, bad with snow at the village, bad with slopes on top. Excellent accommodation and cozy city.
3 adults, 3 children and one adult with a gypsum wrist.
Possibly due to lack of snow, the piste system becomes too small and monotonous. Many and long transport stretches that are sometimes narrow. Two series clocks in one week, feel B. The position of the lifts demanded more strike than usual. Top flat slopes, at the village good slopes if there is snow. In the middle a fun park like the kids 11,12,14 and 15 liked. Mixed grades from the group, but my rating is under funds. I would choose another Alpine peak.

Les 2 Alpes is a cozy ski resort that has slopes of varying difficulty and length.
Les deux Alpes has a snow-proof glacier that has well-prepared slopes. The area is large with a long fall height, but the slopes are divided into lots with many flatter parts.
The backs are always well prepared and it is usually possible to find backs protected from wind.

We were there at the end of March 2017 and were lucky enough to have a good snowfall the day before. It was lucky otherwise there would have been no snow. Les2Alps is a relatively small ski resort and very quiet. We hired an offpist guide one day to get some untouched snow and have a fantastic day. You can also go to La Grave.
Tip, take the lift down to the cozy little village of Venosc if you want to take a break from skiing.

It is possible to take a day trip with the ski bus to Alp D'huez. It includes a day's skiing there with the lift pass. Fun to test a system but when we were there late in the season there was not much snow.

Went with Langley and lived quite close to the piste

Have just done a week in L2A. Unfortunately, there was no way outside the slopes due to lack of snowfall, it was mostly rock and grasslands.

Despite the snow shortage, a brilliant work was done with the slopes, every morning there was well prepared manchester and only a few slopes were shut down due to poor ground. Even late in the afternoon, most of the system was fine. It did not feel like there were a lot of people despite the fact that the queue line queue was long in the morning. If you do not want to queue, take advantage of the little white egg on the mountain instead, a little crowded but no queue to talk about. Once upon a time there were no queues at all.

Very positive is that there are slopes with quite wide variety and even easier slopes at high altitudes where the snowfall is safer so that even those with moderate skills can enjoy the magnificent view. However, it seems to blow more than fresh quite often. There is not much forest so in the worse view you have few options. Fall height is clearly approved.

There is also the possibility to get from the top over to La Grave, if weather permits which of course did not happen during my visit. It still gives a big plus when it comes to a bit more adventurous ride.

The village itself is very nice, good range of shops, cafes and restaurants. It's quite small so the distances are short. There is a cab ride down to the village of Venosc which is worth visiting. There are also a number of other ski resorts on a reasonable distance for those who want to see themselves a little more.

The final score will be very good despite the lack of snow.

Recommend the slopes throughout Les Deux Alpes, where there was last week in Mars when it was a bad winter, but still got a great skiing. Several good slopes that were well-groomed and really long beautiful yesterday. Did not test on the offpiste because I did not even go on all the slopes. No lift queues in principle and definitely not crowded in the slopes. Good après ski drag on the Pano bar in the middle of the hill and the evening life in the village was lovely. The village had no less than 15 Michelin guide restaurants with reasonable prices, and unfortunately he only tested four.

The only negative I can get is that it was a bit rocky at the end of the hill down towards the village, but it is also late in the season. I will definitely be back.

Fantastic nice ski resort that I really recommend! Great off-piste if it's snow lately. Long and short slopes of varying severity. Many nice wide slopes for lovely carvings. There were v. 11 and then there were basically no lift queues. Incredibly good food, both in the village and at the two restaurants in the hill that I tested (of course there are many more I did not try). Really good and scary after skiing at Pano, in the middle of the hill. Also very good at Umbrella Bar down the village, something later in the afternoon.

I was in class 2 alpes v.9 2012 and had a top week! The skiing was very good, the off-piste was ill good but there were also very good slopes for my friends who just started skiing. Some of us went to the ski school and the ski instructor was very educational and we really got a lot of skiing school. I would also recommend going to Alpe d'Huez or Serre Chevalier which also had very nice slopes.

Nightlife was good, very party and lots of people! I was really fun every night, there were both fun bars and clubs. Even after skin was cruel!

I really recommend going to les 2 alpes, then my week there was completely unforgettable!
