Les Deux Alpes is a ski resort in the French Alps. It offers approximately 220km of pisted runs and 2300m of vertical drop. The town is located at 1650m and ski-lifts go up to 3600m . It is France's second oldest ski resort behind Chamonix, where the largest mountain in western Europe is located, Mont Blanc.
In terms of pistes the resort has been termed "upside-down", as the lower slopes down to the resort are steeper and more challenging than the higher ski areas, including the wide and forgiving glacier runs. Less advanced skiers either take a gondola down to the resort or follow a long and narrow track down. A wide area at the very bottom by the town is dedicated to "baby-slopes" (for those skiing for the very first time). Les Deux Alpes also boasts one of the most extensive and revered snowparks in Europe, with a halfpipe, multiple kickers, and two boardercross courses.
