Les 2 Alpes
Les 2 Alpes resort
Located between the northern and southern Alps, in the Oisans region and at the edge of the Ecrins National Park, Les 2 Alpes resort was founded in 1946, on the mountain pastures of the villages of Venosc and Mont de Lans. It was then that our forebears installed the first ski-lift. Could they imagine that by 2000 Les 2 Alpes would be an internationally renowned ski resort?
The ski area
Aficionados of winter sports will be delighted by the exceptional ski area, with snow guaranteed thanks to its glacier (Europe’s biggest skiable glacier in the summer) and its 200 km of pistes between 1300 and 3600 m altitude!
For downhill lovers, the “Grave la Meije” is a snowy off-piste paradise with the wild contours of the Meije valleys, a perfect playground for free riders. Nature lovers can enjoy the snow from a different angle with outings on snowshoes and cross-country skis.
