Mont de Lans

Mont de Lans is the lowest part of the 2 Alpes ski area, only a short chairlift ride from the rest of the system and 5 kilometres from the main resort by road.

It is a sleepy village perched on a hillside below the resort of 2 Alpes, overlooking the Romanche valley. Its traditional mountain architecture and way of life are celebrated in the commune Museé du Chasal Lento, from where you can enjoy a breathtaking view across the valley.

Sights & Attractions in 2 Alpes

The pretty village of La Grave, notorious for its challenging off-piste terrain is about 30 minutes away by road - ride the old gondola for some of the most spectacular mountain views in the region. The ride up to Pic Blanc at Alpe d'Huez an hour away offers views of distant Mont Blanc. Further afield you can tour the Chartreus distillery at Voiron on the other side of Grenoble, visit the museum and grounds of the chateau at Vizille on the D1091, or take a ride on the old funicular railway at St Hilaire du Touvet towards Chambery.

Things to Do in 2 Alpes

In summer it makes a great base for walking and cycling, on both the roads and the downhill routes in 2 Alpes. The Romanche valley nearby offers some challenging via ferratas plus grade 3 while water rafting at La Grave.

Dining in 2 Alpes

There's nowhere to eat in the evening in Mont de Lans, which provides an excuse for a large lunch on the mountain. The Diable au Cœur at the top of the new Diable chair is owned by the same family as the Chalet Hotel Mounier, and is reckoned to be the best lunch on the hill. Elsewhere, Le Kanata does moules frites and a beer for a bargain price, and the restaurant on the glacier offers takeaway, self service and a proper restaurant, all with fabulous views.

Nightlife in 2 Alpes

Without a bar or restaurant to its name, Mont de Lans is not a good choice for the social nightowl, though a ten minute drive takes you up to 2 Alpes centre and its buzzing nightlife.
