Best Advanced Ski Areas in Les 2 Alpes

Discover the top Les 2 Alpes advanced skiing

Updated

Les Deux Alpes has some great skiing for advanced skiers and snowboarders. It has a good range of red and black runs and with the Glacier and overall altitude of the ski area, you are likely to find a challenge somewhere in resort.

From the Signal chairlift

Signal 3 piste is one of the steepest reds that Les Deux Alpes has to offer. From the glacier at 3200m take the furthest right of all the pistes; Signal 3 has a vertical drop of 250m, it is wide and very rarely in bad condition, though can be icy due to the altitude. The piste steepness eases off near the bottom, where you can turn right and join on to Signal 1 piste.

From the Glaciers chairlift & Jandri Express

The Glaciers 6, 7 and 8 red pistes are also reached from 3200m. Follow the Glacier 1 piste, keeping right, until you see a red piste on the right-hand side. Follow this, gently at first, to a steep section. After this, a blue variant leads back to the Jandri 4 on the left. Otherwise, follow the red to an intersection with three options. The left-hand Glaciers 6 is the easiest, with a short steep section leading to the Jandri 4. The most impressive option is to continue straight on Glacier 8, underneath the Glaciers chairlift. This piste can be quite busy, and moguls do develop in the later hours of the day.

La Fee Valley

La Fée valley is one of the best areas to enjoy red and black pistes all day long. Currently, the quickest way to access this for red/black run skiers is to follow the Jandri 3 piste from La Toura as far as the Sautet chair. From here you can take the Fee 4 and 5 red runs, or the steep and icy Fee 6 black back to the La Fee high-speed 6-person chair. The start of Fee 4 is a great place for skiing fast while Fee 5 is often the place to find moguls.

Getting back to 2 Alpes resort

Getting back to resort there are three routes down when conditions are good - the Valentin, Diable 1 and Vallons du Diable. Valentin will take you back to the Mont de Lans part of Les Deux Alpes. It is snow sure, due to snow cannon on both sides the whole way down and a massive snow making machine at the top of the Valentine pumps out a vast amount of snow making it even steeper. With a vertical drop of 300m, Valentin is one of the fastest pistes Les Deux Alpes has to offer; very steep, very wide and best time to ski it is early in the morning when the piste is deserted.

Le Diable will take you back to the Venosc part of Les Deux Alpes. It is the steepest and longest black run in Les Deux Alpes, running from 2400m down to an altitude of 1600m. The top of the Diable 1 is wide and rolling – steep but not as steep as the lower section.

The Vallons du Diable – a good long and interesting red to the Venosc end of the resort, but unfortunately the snow is often poor lower down on the south-facing section. A nice option is to do the top section of the Vallons du Diable then cut right on a cat track onto the bottom half of the Diable 1 giving the best bits of both pistes.
