Resort Information

Best for:

When you book a school ski trip to Alp 2500, there’s no need to worry about poor weather – this is Europe’s sunniest ski resort! Linking the two ski towns of Masella and La Molina, Alp 2500 is the largest ski area in Catalonia and offers a fantastic Pyrenean skiing experience. And there’s no need to worry that all that lovely Spanish sun will turn the slopes to slush – most of the slopes are actually north-facing and set high up the Pyrenees. In fact, Alp 2500 is considered a ‘dead-cert’ for snow! Plus, you’ll be able to enjoy these fantastic skiing conditions without the high prices and crowds that are sometimes associated with skiing in the Alps. 

Skiing Information

The two main areas, La Molina and Masella, offer your students different skiing experiences. La Molina offers gentle, wide runs, which are ideal for beginners to practise and improve on. Masella offers exciting tree-lined runs, which are better suited to more experienced skiers looking for their next adventure. But both offer extensive beginners’ areas at the foot of the mountain, as well as good progression runs from the top of the mountain all the way back to the resort. As well as a wide variety of runs for all abilities, the resort also has two snow parks and a superpipe. The infrastructure throughout Alp 2500 is highly developed and features high-speed ‘jet’ lifts and an integrated artificial snow-making system. Skiing starts high, at 1700m, and the north-facing slopes mean that all 141km of pistes are snow-sure.

For me, the most exciting part of my job is meeting the students and hearing all about their fun experiences on the slopes! I believe that school travel is wonderful for the development of young people. – Tracy West Ski Specialist

Don't take our word for it …

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. — Holden Lane High School
