Les Deux Alpes, a high-altitude gem nestled in France, boasts a remarkable list of accolades, including the title of housing Europe's largest skiable glacier and offering the world's longest fully on-piste vertical descent at an impressive 2200 meters.

But it's not just records that set this resort apart. Its stellar reputation for snow reliability and extensive off-piste terrain make it a perennial favorite among British visitors. The resort flaunts a generous 200 kilometers of meticulously groomed on-piste slopes, with a strong emphasis on catering to beginners. For those with advanced skills, the allure of nearby La Grave awaits. Les Deux Alpes also takes pride in being home to one of Europe's premier snowparks.

Accommodation options in the village are plentiful, stretching nearly 2 kilometers along a sun-kissed valley. Off the slopes, a plethora of activities awaits, with a vibrant après-ski scene that ranks Les Deux Alpes among the liveliest resorts in France.

In exciting news, the long-discussed connection to Alpe d'Huez seems poised to become a reality, with a massive 3S gondola expected to link the two resorts by 2022 - now obviously that hasn't happened yet but we are still hoping.
