Beginner

ski rating

With numerous tows serving the gentle nursery slopes along the village edge beginners won’t have to travel far to get going. Following that beginners are whisked up to the Glacier du Mont de Lans to continue their sliding education. Here they can enjoy the impressive views while gliding around.

Intermediate

ski rating

However you prefer to write it, Les Deux Alpes or Les 2 Alpes, intermediates certainly won’t write off this resort. About seventy percent of the runs are graded easy or intermediate and with guaranteed snow on the glacier you really can’t go wrong. Be sure to save some energy for the home runs which can prove a challenge at the end of a hard day.

Advanced

ski rating

Advanced and expert riders really shouldn’t be left wanting here. For one there are a considerable number of on-piste challenges with twenty-nine runs being graded difficult by the resort officials. Secondly, the slopes above La Grave provide some of the most outstanding back country riding in the region. The terrain is glaciated and described by some as true climbing territory. With that in mind, a jaunt to La Grave should really only be tackled with a local guide.

Freestyle, Skier and BoarderCross

ski rating

Les Deux Alpes provides a pretty descent terrain park with all the bells and whistles. There’s also a cross track for some helter skelter action plus a half pipe for the smokers.
