Les Deux Alpes

Les Deux Alpes Overview

At an altitude of 3600m with the benefit of its glacier, Les Deux Alpes is a snow-sure and popular destination for school ski groups. One of the most famous resorts in Europe, it offers some great skiing on over 220km of prepared piste. Some of the easiest slopes are to be found higher up around the glacier area, making this ski village a wonderful choice for groups, while intermediates have the choice of mid-level reds and more experienced skiers can show off their skills on the range of blacks that descend into town. There is a 10km blue run which starts from the glacier and runs all the way down to the bottom of resort which is excellent for beginners and intermediates. LDA is an excellent choice for school groups!
