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?!
