Les Deux Alpes
Number of green runs: 17
Number of blue runs: 45
Les Deux Alpes is a great resort to find your snow legs. Complete beginners start on the nursery slopes right down in the town and after mastering the basics, move on to the easily accessible, higher altitude beginner areas. There are even designated green and blue ‘Slow Zones’ all over the mountain so that everyone can build up their confidence.
Our favourite green run – Petites Crêtes:
We love this green! Not only are there lovely views across the valley, but the run has a great mix of straights and turns, with a wide straight section at the end where you can really let go! Once you’ve mastered the green Petites Crêtes, you can push yourself by trying the neighbouring blue Crêtes run.
How to get there: Takes the Crêtes lift if you’re already in the Crêtes area, or the Diable if you’re in town.
Our favourite blue runs – Signal 1 & 2:
Starting from all the way up at 3200m these runs are really open, wide and quite often less busy than some of the other blues. The altitude means that the snow is better than some of the lower areas and the views will take your breath away! If you want to really push yourself, you can ski the Jandri blues all the way from the glacier back to resort - that’s a difference in altitude of 1550 metres!
How to get there: Take the Jandri Express 1 & 2
