Les 2 Alpes is a world class ski resort, whilst managing to stay friendly at the same time. There are over 220Kms of pistes of all levels available, and at least as much again of unpisted, lift-served terrain.

There are two sides to the Alpe, the Jandri and the Pied Moutet. The Pied Moutet is much smaller, and generally steeper, it tends to be quieter than the Jandri side, and gets a lot more sun, being East facing. This can be wonderful, but does mean more melt and re-freeze late in the season. The runs on the Pied Moutet tend to be underrated in their colour labelling!

The Jandri side is much more extensive, and most skiers spend the majority of their time here. At the very top (3,600m) there is access to La Grave via a piste machine tow when conditions allow. Please note that especially early in the season this may not always run. When it does, skiing at La Grave is free on your 6 day Les Deux Alpes liftpass.

The Fée lift gives access to a number of unpisted walls down which a fantastic variety of lines can be skied, but these walls are steep and care should be taken to check the avalanche danger before considering skiing them. The same is even more important when considering Rachas which is accessible from the top of the Bellecombe lift.

The whole area is full of steep off piste possibilities, with the second biggest off piste area in France after Chamonix.

From the piste perspective, care should be taken that blue is a fairly elastic colour in Les 2 Alpes, running from really easy runs on the glacier to several blues that are definitely red! Several of the runs in the village go up onto the front face and are far from nursery slopes, in fact the Stade de Slalom is down in the village.

Beginners are brilliantly catered for with 1Km of width in the village served by a number of poma drags. 4 of these are free, so beginners don't need to get a lift pass straight away. The village runs are beautifully graded so that beginners can progress at a suitable pace, without the need to go up the mountain. For kids, the village is loads more fun that further up with all the little jumps and banks and streams and trees to play around. Many beginners are able to ski from the glacier to the village at the end of their first week, using the easy options on the main blue runs down.

The town itself isn't the most attractive in the alps, and is much bigger than most people expect, however a walk around the Venosc end will soon show you the centuries old origins.
