Les 2 Alpes Ski Resort
Open: 03 December 2016 – 29 April 2017
This vibrant, sporty and fashionable international ski resort is among the biggest and most famous in the world. Les 2 Alpes was built in 1946 on the former high pastures of Venosc and Mont de Lans, two parish villages in the Isère where the northern and southern Alps meet.
A 2km strip of bars and hotels line the two sides of the valleys resulting in a lively entertainment area. The large glacier suits all levels of skiers and there are plenty of challenging off-piste runs.
If you’re looking to get away from it all and enjoy an unforgettable snowsports holiday, breathing pure air and surrounded by beautiful scenery, then Les 2 Alpes is the place for you!
