Just got back from a week in Les Deux Alps (26/1/08) with ten mates. The resort was fantastic, skiing was great, snow conditions couldn't have been better even with the warm weather. The lift system was fast and efficient with minimal queues. Stayed at Les Cret in the town centre with Skiworld. The location was perfect, hotel basic but clean, the food was a bit of a surprise, great food, the staff and the manager were also great. Would recommend. An absolute must is the day away trip to Serre Chevalier an amazing resort with fantastic skiing, only 30 euros for the coach which picked us up outside Le Cret, with skiing covered on the Deux Alps pass. Six nights out in the town until between 2 -

I went to Les Deux Alpes for the first time this Easter (1st week April 2007) The resort is great, everything you could possibly want is there. The nightlife is great, and most of the bar staff speak English. I have looked at other peoples reviews and there seems to be a lot of criticism that the resort is not geared up for beginners, but I would strongly disagree. The valley walls are quite steep, hence 2 blacks the only skiable way down, except for a green zig zag run which was not open when we were there; simply not enough snow cover right at the bottom. But if you take the gondola to the first plateau there is ample skiing for skiers/borders of all levels. This is where all the ski schoo

Ik vind les 2 alpes echt super! Ik kom er al 10 jaar lang, want we hebben een appartement daar. Toen ik er voor het eerst kwam was ik een jaar of 10 en ik vond skieen erg eng. Maar je wordt zo goed opgevangen en iedereen staat klaar voor je! Ook is het erg leuk dat de makkelijke pistes op de gletsjer zijn, waardoor je de hele alpen kan overzien. Qua uitgaan is het natuurlijk minder apres ski dan oosterijk, maar erg leuk, na een paar keer herkent iedereen je en is het erg gezellig! Wel staat er soms veel wind waardoor het gebied afgesloten is, maar meestal zijn de pistes open, en anders iedergeval een deel! Les 2 alpes is altijd erg gezellig, en ik raad het iedereen aan! Ik vind het altijd he

I have been ski-ing at this resort for more than 10 years, after many previous years of trying out other countries. As a family of varying ages, there is something here for us all, whether beginners, skiers or boarders. The atmosphere is great although it becomes less desirable during peak "french school holiday" periods when it is very busy and crowded. I am lucky to have my own accommodation but there are a lot of english owners now and rather than booking cheap apartments via agencies, you should check out the "owners direct" website and you will find quality accommodation which will make your holiday much better. The snow is guaranteed due to the high altitude, and th

The Resort is ok, fairly cheap(if you make an effort) but snowconditions are not what I expected them to be like. I've been to les Deux alpes for 3 times and had a lot of fun being there. However, this resort would not even be in my top5. The run back to the village is terrible, it's a long path that becomes extremely crowded at the end of the day because there is no alternative. At the end you have a choice between a greenslope and a black one. In my opinion, the black one is much more relaxed than the green one which is completely ruined after a full day. The black stays fairly boardable...
