The weather was perfect, blue skies and good snow. Lifts were pretty easy to access and a really good slope area to get back on your feet again if you haven't skied for a while, or are a beginner. The whole ambiance of the resort is wonderful. Fabulous restaurants and bars and shops. Definately would go again.

With a resort that reaches the heady heights of 3600 you would expect some long decent runs and Les Deux Alps delivers. By no means as testing as St Anton (Austria) though it does have a decent mix of Blue, Red and Black runs. The experienced skiers will not be overly stretched however. Definitely a good resort for intermediates. Conditions were not at their best in early Jan 2015 and a third of the resort was closed but other resorts would have been even worse off! On a good day though you would be able to do what must be one of the longest runs in the Alps from the Glacier all the way back to the resort with a few Greens on the way. The lift system is fast and new and the resort does seem to be run very well. They have mountain staff that will assist you at the lift points with directions and advise which is a nice touch. The piste map is not the largest and you will have done most runs by the 2nd or 3rd day which is why it leans towards the less experienced. The off-piste looks good for Snowboarders but conditions were not suitable to try. You also have the option of Le Grave from the top to do. It is a holiday though and no Ski holiday is complete without some Apres Ski and Les 2 Alps understands this. The Pano Bar at the Jardine lift must be the top Apres Ski bar in the French Alps. With a resident DJ it really gets pumping. When we arrived it was full of season staff half naked dancing on an outdoor stage. The second day saw a French Saxaphone player keeping up with the pumping tunes, sounds odd but it worked. Down in the resort there are a number of Apres Ski bars at the bottom of the lifts to sample before your meal. After dark the resort has a good mix of bars with the Polar Bear and Ruhmerie just two to mention. There are also a couple of night clubs that were packed to the brim as well. A good selection of shops, supermarkets and restaurants give you plenty of options.
