SKI RESORT GUIDE
Les 2 Alpes
RATING OF THE RESORT :2.5/5
Review written on the 14/02/2010.
Bad classification of the pistes, the blue one are more like red ones and dangerous even for an intermediate skier. Skiing back to resort means you either take the black piste or a green one that's narrow. Poor security on the pistes (markers, maintenance). Poor welcome...

A superb domain, with a glacier. Snow guaranteed. Great pistes (for example La Toura), nice off-piste possibilities.
The architecture, average services standard
An ugly resort with a superb domain! Is that not unfair?

very beautiful and small village on the same level (no ski lift), good for pushchairs or for strolling around the streets or wandering around, for young people in the bars. Friendly atmosphere. If you take the 6-day pass, 2 days free in the domain of Alpes d'Huez. Luckily!
Ski pass: a real tourist trap. €90 the week. It's daylight robbery given the quality of the facilities and ski lifts (obsolete, slow, uncomfortable). it's the first time in 20 that I've been disappointed with this.
Nice resort for pedestrians. For skiers, you're better off going somewhere else. Just €20 more for Alpes d'huez with other services.

kindness of all the people
shrieking in the streets all through the night even at the end of the season (April), it's unimaginable to come across such a noise in the mountains
family resort certificate incompatible with the noisy nightlife!!!

Really big and varied ski domain. A great resort for young people with lots of bars. Atmosphere guaranteed!
Luckily, it's not a 'concrete block' resort but is set out in a long line which means it doesn't have a cosy, villagey feel to it, which would be more welcoming!
It's true that it's probably better adapted to a young public like students and young couples without children... It's a really nice resort though and I recommend it!

Excellent ski domain... Thanks to the altitude (3600m) one always finds good snow. Possibility to ski in summer. Good facilities and good flow.
A few (too few) good restaurants.
Resort without charm.
Fish and chips atmosphere, a bit cheap.
Resort targeted to young people who would surely enjoy the great night life. As it's not my case, I'm quite happy to pay a bit more and get a better services.
