One of the world?s more major southerly ski areas, Les Deux Alpes ski resort?s slopes rise up for more than a vertical mile above the village to the permanent powder fields of the glacier, accessed by an underground funicular railway and open for summer snow sports. As well as a big ski area, the base village is big too, with hundreds of shops, bars and restaurants spread along a 2km main street. Like the name says, Les Deux Alpes resort is made up of two Alps, two alpine pastures put together over 50 years ago to form a ski resort. It shows how prescient the burghers of Mont-de-Lans and Venosc were; today 35,000 tourists at a time flock to the mile-high resort. They come to enjoy the extensive, mostly treeless ski terrain, efficient lifts and lots of sun on south-facing slopes. They ski on 220 km of groomed slopes at Les Deux Alpes, 20 percent of them black, and 44 percent intermediate and 36 percent easy. Les Deux Alpes has a top skiable elevation of 3600 meters and a vertical drop of 2300 metres are impressive statistics rarely found in a ski area. Snowboarders have a real chance to strut their stuff. In addition to wide-open spaces, shredders have a boarder-cross, fun park, and half pipe. Stout-hearted skiers have a mile-long couloir to jump into. The Mont-de-Lans glacier at Les Deux Alpes, near the top of the main mountain, is claimed by the tourist office to be the largest skiable glacier in Europe. Les Deux Alpes offers a larger than usual choice of off-slope activities and extensive shopping and nightlife.
