Les 2 Alpes, international ski resort – 1650m
The famous ski resort of Les 2 Alpes was built in 1946 on the former pastures of Mont de Lans and Venosc. It is world-renowned, largely due to its high-altitude skiing area (the largest glacier skiing area in Europe).
Its position on a wide plateau has allowed a 2 km avenue to be created, along which visitors can stroll, ride in a carriage or on a shuttle bus, making it a resort that is easy and pleasant to get around. It is now the young, sporty, cool and freestyle resort par excellence!
Activities in Les 2 Alpes
Dynamic, sporty and trendy, Les 2 Alpes is one of the rare destinations in Europe where you can ski in the summer, thanks to its glacier rising to an altitude of 3600 m. In the meantime, the lower part of the domain is turned into a paradise for mountain-biking enthusiasts.
In both summer and winter, the snow park is the benchmark in the world of freestyle.
The resort also offers the host of other activities you would expect from a station of its renown!
In Les 2 Alpes, let’s explore..
When there’s no more snow, you can still ski at Les 2 Alpes! The glacier, which by nature remains snow-covered, allows ski enthusiasts to get a dose of thrills between two winters, and allows pro-skiers to train. If you prefer taking to the mountains in the summer, it’s a great opportunity to sip lemonade and sunbathe while the kids play in the snow.
Rollicking mountain bike fun!
The Bike Park at Les 2 Alpes is a major destination in the world of downhill mountain biking. Downhill mountain bike lovers will feel the thrill of smooth and wide trails with elevated corners and fun ramps. Bike patrols work all summer to ensure your safety as well as amusement. Les 2 Alpes has thought of everything, so have fun!
lac de la Buissonière
Les 2 Alpes has a lake at the resort’s entrance where you can swim, sunbathe, play on the sand, have a picnic, play pétanque, and so much more. Enjoy the pleasures of the sea 1,650 m above ground! It’s pretty neat for the only lake of its kind in the Oisans. Just walking around the lake will recharge you, but take a trip to visit the small bridge to reach the little grassy island. Perhaps you fancy walking through the passage under the waterfall that feeds the lake? Or maybe you just want to check out, with the help of an orientation table, the dreamy view of the mountains…
