Skiing in Les 2 Alpes

Thanks to the great variety of slopes to suit all abilities, your students are certain to have a great skiing experience on their school ski trip to Les 2 Alpes, whatever their current level. Some of the easiest skiing is actually higher up, on and around the glacier. This is a great location, as beginners can learn against the amazing backdrop of the High Alps, instead of a shaded slope on the outskirts of a village, as can sometimes be the case. Offering 220km of piste and a glacier, as well as a snowpark that your snowboarders will love, Les 2 Alpes really is a spectacular resort and a brilliant option for your next ski trip.

Hotel Atmosphere

This cosy little hotel couldn't be in a more central location (one of the best located hotels that we feature!) being right in the very centre of Les 2 Alpes, and only 150 metres from the lifts and ski school meeting point. All the rooms have been tastefully decorated, with flat screen TV, ensuite bathroom and new parquet flooring in all rooms, and a key card entry system. The main entrance is on the main Les 2 Alpes street, whilst access to the slopes is from the rear of the hotel - a quick walk around the ice rink brings you to the Jandri Express Lift and the bottom of the slopes and the ski school meeting point.The hotel has a new reception area opening onto a large bar lounge, and next the restaurant. There is a large outdoor terrace with tables and chairs, an ideal meeting area during the day.

Let's chat!

Les Deux Alpes is a fantastic resort for school groups. One of the best towns for après-ski activities. The slopes have enough variation for all levels of skiing and having returned here for the 2nd time, I can safely say it's one of our favourites. The hotel was easy walking distance. The resort was very quiet when we were there, never once queuing for a lift/cable car. The instruction from the ski school was fantastic and our students progressed beyond expectation.
