We’re not surprised that Les 2 Alpes is one of our most popular resorts. It’s snow sure, it has the largest skiable glacier in Europe and a massive off-piste area. That’s all before we get to the party atmosphere that put’s it at the top of any alpine revellers map.
If you are looking to be in the middle of it all when it comes to nightlife in Deux Alpes, then Cortina residence is your number 1 option. You can find a handful of bars and restaurants practically around your doorstep, but not too close that it will affect your sleeping hours. Where you are on Avenue de la Muzelle, you’ll also find ‘Diable’ cable car within an arm’s reach (well a bit further than an arm but we hope you get what we mean).

It’s also perfect if you’ve got a group of mixed abilities – rookies can hone their skills on the nursery slopes and the numerous greens that stretch right up to the glacier while their ski bunny pals can enjoy the fun of the blues and reds over on the Pied Moutet side of town. In fact, Les 2 Alpes comes into its own for advanced skiers, with almost as many blacks as reds and some of Europe’s best off-piste.
One of the coolest things about Les 2 Alpes is that it’s kind of upside down – some of the easiest slopes are high up, giving beginners the rare chance to enjoy high-altitude skiing and insane views that they usually miss out on in other resorts, before hopping on the gondola to get back down to avoid some of the steepest and toughest slopes that run into the resort.
