Winter sports are one of the nicest things of the year; you are literally completely gone in another world and also too busy to think about everyday to day things. Skiing or snowboarding clears your mind and that’s why many people enjoy a wintersports holiday.
The choice for a snow holiday in the French Alps is logical; France has been at the top of the world’s most popular destinations for years and that is not without reason. The quality of the accommodations, safety and accessibility are all perfectly arranged. Add to that the quality of the food in France and the nice weather and then you know why a French winter holiday is a good idea.
Les Deux Alpes is one of the oldest ski resorts with 225 kilometers of ski runs at different levels; from beginners to “dare devils” who only want to get of the black runs. You can also enjoy off-piste skiing in Les Deux Alpes, although it is advisable to bring a local ski instructor. If you want to go on holiday to a cozy ski area in the French Alps, then here are five reasons for choosing Les Deux Alpes.
Les 2 Alpes is a French ski resort specially built with snow guarantee. The location is high enough and thanks to the glacier you can ski here until the summer. For people who don’t like the beach the ideal destination. Les Deux Alpes is therefore a snow-sure area. The snow from the West stays good because of the altitude
Les 2 Alpes has no snow problem; it picks up snow from the west and sometimes also from the south which, because of the altitude, immediately stays in place. And if it does not snow once, the slopes are “refilled” with snow from the many snow cannons.
Les Deux Alpes offers fun for the whole family; that of course starts on the slopes but also outside the ski slopes there is plenty to do for the whole family. There are two swimming pools, there is an ice bumper car park (Ice Glider), you can visit an ice cave together at 3200 meters altitude, there is a slide hill for the little ones, a mini snowmobile track, a laser tag hall, in short, too much to mention.
The ski area is fun for every level, but the experienced skiers can certainly enjoy themselves here. The slopes are long and challenging like the red Vallons du Diable. This valley descent in les Deux Alpes is quite spicy and very varied; that makes this a wonderful descent for the advanced skier. The Bellacombes is a real black black slope with substantial steep descents, a party for the experienced skier. Do Bellacombes if the snow is softer or if fresh snow has fallen. If the slope is not open, stay away due to avalanche danger.
