Les Deux Alpes Overview

With slopes reaching an impressive altitude of 3600m, Les Deux Alpes is a snow-sure and popular destination for school ski groups, Boasting over 220km of slopes and a glacier, this famous resort offers an unparalleled variety of skiing and evening entertainment options. Huge recent investment in the ski area has really opened it up to all levels of skier, with the addition of easier green and blue runs back to village level. The Vallée Blanche sector has been renovated and connected to the main part of resort, further adding to the slopes on offer. Often known as an ‘upside down’ resort, some of the easiest slopes are to be found at altitude, on the glacier area, meaning the whole mountain is immediately accessible to even the most novice skier. Intermediates and advanced skiers are also well catered for with a huge range of more challenging slopes, including a 10km blue run and some daunting blacks. LDA is an excellent choice for school groups!
