Les Deux Alpes is amongst Europe’s highest winter sports resorts with a relaxed and friendly cosmopolitan atmosphere, fabulous skiing and snowboarding plus a wide range of slopes for all levels.
A longstanding school ski favourite, Les Deux Alpes stretches beneath 4,000 metre peaks that are sure to impress your students. Our groups love the relaxed feel about town and, after each ski day, there’s bowling, ice-skating, laser tag, and an outdoor heated pool, all within walking distance to look forward to.
Whenever you visit, great snow is guaranteed thanks to the resort’s high altitude. Efficient lifts take you out of town and into the mountains with access to the gentle runs on Europe’s largest skiable glacier.
Even though the resort is ideal for all levels, it’s particularly great for beginners and intermediates as they can start from close to the top of the mountain due to recent investments in expanding its vast blue runs.
The extensive ski area also provides a challenge for the most hardened boarder. The resort continues to invest in improvements – with new runs and express lifts opening within the last 5 years.
Whilst on the slopes, students can challenge each other to time trials on the exhilarating parallel slalom course.
An ‘upside-down resort’ with gentle blues at altitude and steeper runs at village level, Les Deux Alpes gives beginners the unique opportunity to ski on a glacier once they’ve mastered the nursery slopes nearer town. Intermediates have the choice of mid-level reds and a sweeping 12km blue to build their stamina on, while your most experienced skiers can show off their skills on the range of blacks that lead into town.
Not for the faint hearted is the ‘Super Diable’, a long steep black, plus a unique snow-park and a half-pipe. For anyone with jelly legs, there’s an easy green or the option to take a cable-car at the end of the day.
