"A high resort, one hour from the airport with a vast glacier to explore - what is not to like?"
Les Deux Alpes is around an hour from Grenoble airport and with its flowing pistes and the largest skiable glacier in Europe (meaning you can ski in both summer and winter) it is easy to see why it is so popular with the British. Populated mostly with blue pistes, this resort is a fantastic base for a beginner, although with neighbouring off piste areas, a snow park to rival the best and talks of it becoming linked up to Alpes d'huez, even an expert will enjoy a ski holiday here.
