Why Ski in Les Deux-Alpes?

Les Deux Alpes, is situated in the Isère region of the French Alps. It is a renowned ski resort that has long been a popular choice for Ski Line’s clients. With its extensive ski slopes, breathtaking views, and lively nightlife, we are sure you’ll love Les Deux Alpes.

The ski area extends over 225 kilometres with 89 ski slopes suitable for all levels of experience, including 11 black runs, 22 red runs, 45 blue runs, and 11 green runs. The resort also boasts a world-famous snow park, featuring half-pipes, rails, jumps, and other freestyle features.

Apart from skiing and snowboarding, Les Deux Alpes offers a range of other winter activities, such as snowshoeing, ice skating, and ice driving. The après-ski scene is also worth experiencing with a variety of bars, restaurants, and nightclubs to choose from.

Ski Line has catered ski chalets and ski hotels for clients to choose from, all of which have been hand-picked to serve excellent food and offer comfortable accommodations. We also have a large number of self-catered apartments to choose from, which offer a more value-for-money option.

Your Les Deux Alpes lift pass includes two days of cover in the nearby ski resort of Alpe d’Huez with an option of a helicopter flight (€65 return) or, if you prefer a less adventurous return trip there are buses which normally depart on Wednesdays and Thursdays. We advise early booking in the resort. Also included is one day’s skiing in Serre Chevalier, which is an hour’s drive away. If you haven’t skied here since 2015, the resort has made some major improvements to the homeward runs, pre-2015 the choice was a busy green or an often mogulled black, so the new blue run has transformed this and feedback from our clients suggests it is a very welcome improvement.

On busy peak weeks, it is best to hit the slopes early as delays at some lifts can build up, not surprising with up to 35,000 visitors making this their winter holiday base.
