From open slopes to big freeride, L2A’s got you. Nestled in the Massif des Ecrins, Les Deux Alpes (lay-derz-alp) is one of the biggest, and oldest, resorts in Europe with vast vertical drop and an unusual geography of lower-mountain steeps. Featuring snow-sure glacial slopes, awesome freestyle terrain, plus some of Europe’s toughest off-piste in connecting La Grave, L2A has a mega fun feel and is a mainstay on the European ski scene for serious riders. Oh, and did we mention the après?
South-facing slopes, huge vertical and an out of the ordinary mountain geography of bottom-loaded blacks. L2A’s ski area has 200+km of marked terrain to keep your legs pumping for weeks on end. From a 1,300m base elevation, the resort rises to 3,600m on the Mont de Lans glacier, one of the largest skiable glaciers in Europe. Top to bottom, you have 2,300m of thigh-burning drop and insanely beautiful views.
Head to lower elevations for challenging and steeper pitches that funnel to the mountain base, or boost across to adjoining La Grave for some of Europe’s best freeride lines. L2A also has options for freestyle fanatics to push their limits, with one of the best facilities in France, or Europe for that matter, ‘Freestyle Land’, which features a snowpark for all levels plus as halfpipe and superpipe.
L2A’s main village sits on a high plateau, known by locals as ‘le plateau’, and features plenty of eating options, beautiful views of Roche de la Muzelle to the south, and a buzzing après scene. From Le Pano Bar at 2,600m on the mountain, to Pub Windsor with 100+ beers on offer, L’Avalanche Club for table-top dancing until the early hours, plus traditional alpine hangouts, L2A has you sorted on all fronts.
You’ve also got the lower medieval village of Venosc, accessible by gondola, to escape the hustle and bustle of the main resort and enjoy a quieter atmosphere on down days, where you’ll find traditional cobbled streets and local craft shops to whittle away your chill-time.
We look forward to speaking with you.
