You won't just like it; you'll love it! Les Deux Alpes is a lively village and one of the oldest ski resorts in France. For singles, couples and families you'll find there's a wide choice of bars and restaurants along the resort's main street that will suit all tastes - including the Tribeca Bar and Restaurant or The Windsor Pub.
With an impressive snow record and above average sunshine to put you in the mood, this resort has over 200km of pistes and areas to suit all levels of skier and snowboarder. Les Deux Alpes is known as a family resort, and our Chalet Hotel Bérangère has excellent, spacious accommodation for all the family. The resort positively encourages children by providing four free T-bars in the village, and there's a kid's freestyle area too. Popular attractions include an outdoor ice rink and two sports centres.
Wake up every morning on your ski holiday, look out the window and pick any spot on the mountain you like — you could be skiing down it in no time at all. Chalet Hotel Bérangère is our chalet ski resort that sits right at the foot of the slopes with uninterrupted views and unparalleled conditions.
For someone on their first ski holiday, you’re afforded excellent beginner slopes to get to grips with skiing, before heading higher up and embracing the thrill of the 42 runs for confident skiers. If this is your first time skiing, we do recommend booking into a ski school before you travel. It’s the best way to learn quickly and gain confidence in no time at all.
You’ll need to book a Les Deux Alpes ski pass to get up on the slopes, and we recommend pre-booking a six-day pass here in the UK before you go on holiday.
For anyone who has never had the chance to hit the slopes on a snowboard and wants to go for it on their next ski holiday, snowboarding in Les Deux Alpes is a perfect location for beginners.
There are plenty of wider pistes which are ideal when you’re new to a board and need to get used to turning and maintaining balance properly. You can find out more on our snowboarding holiday page which has information for other resorts too and nearby skate parks.
You’re not going to the pistes when you stay at Les Deux Alpes — you’re already on them. The hotel is located right between three ski lifts, and just a short walk down the road puts you right in the middle of the village.
Pistes vary in skill level so just ask, and you’ll get pointed towards the best runs to start on. For advanced riders it’s also effortless to get off-piste, with plenty of long runs through trees.

Popular spots around the resort include the heated indoor swimming pool, lounge area with a roaring fire (very popular around sunset) and the lounge bar with big comfy seats that you can sink into after a long day of skiing.
With a flight time of around 90 minutes and direct transfer taking less than two hours, Les Deux Alpes is just that perfect distance for families travelling to get away from it all and still have adventure waiting around the corner.
The resort has a ski school with a dedicated lesson plan for little ones where they’re picked up from the resort every day, allowing parents to tackle the slopes as they see fit. And while parents can make the most the 3-course evening meal (with wine of course), evening childcare sees younger children come to the Snuggle Club for an early night.
