First time skiing in France and I had a great time. Beautiful wide slopes, good quality snow thanks to the glacier. Very friendly people, very helpful. Nice village with many bars and restaurants and shops. Although the bars on the slopes were pricey, no more Austria for me, from now on Les Deux Alpes 👍👍👍

We went to Les 2 Alpes just after the French ski holiday rush with our young son and a group of skiing friends with their young kids. We chose to treat ourselves and stayed in the Club Med - no we're not rich! All in all, when you add everything up and you realise you have NOTHING to organise ALL week - what a treat - it's worth saving a bit harder all year for this kind of service. Super food, great fun activities, the kids all loved it and the mums too! Dads particularly liked the open bar! I fell pregnant after booking the ski holiday so although i was disappointed to not discover the ski area I certainly discovered the extras at the club and in the resort. I spent every morning walking and the rest of the time relaxing. A great sunny week with some fresh snow - my husband even went on an off-piste tour with the guide for our club.
We have been going to Les 2 Alpes for several years now for the : guaranteed snow (glacier area where you can ski up to 3200m), wide well-groomed slopes and plenty of apres ski in the village. Les 2 Alpes is a long and narrow village, so be careful where you book your accommodation: best close to the main ski lift 'Jandri Express because it takes you to the higher skiing. Its also ideal for families with children: many easy slopes are at the top of the glacier so beginners can enjoy good snow too. Tip: ESF ski school collects generally at the Residence "Cote Brune" so quite handy if you stay there ... But Les 2 Alpes has several free ski buses that run constantly in the village so wherever you stay, you can reach the ski lifts easily. There are also many restaurants in the resort centre, something for everyone.
Les Deux Alpes has a lot to offer all types of snow sports fans. Free slopes for beginners and varied slopes for intermediates to fabulous off piste for the experts - my husband had a ball here. Apart from skiing, there are plenty of apres ski bars or we had a few cozy dinners in some of the many restaurants. The Raisin d'Ours is a must, reservation is recommended! The European ski and snowboard school is a super good ski school with only small groups and the instructors speak good English!
