The ski area
The 2 Alpes ski area
Les 2 Alpes was one of the first ski resorts created in France.
As early as the 1930s, refuges and inns were set up on the territory of the communes of Venosc and Mont-de-Lans and the first ski lift was inaugurated in 1938 on the western slope. But it was not until the 1950s that the resort really developed. It was also during these years that it took the name of Les 2 Alpes, reminding us that it was born from the meeting of the mountain pastures of two communes.
Skiing all summer long in Les 2 Alpes, it's possible!
Today, the ski area of Les 2 Alpes is one of the largest in Europe with 425 hectares of marked out sectors. It has 47 ski lifts and 96 runs to suit all types of skiers: 17 green, 45 blue, 22 red and 12 black. Its longest run offers a continuous vertical drop of 2,300 m and, with the Jandri blue runs, it allows everyone to enjoy 10 km of downhill skiing, from 3,400 m to 1,600 m altitude. In addition to these alpine skiing areas, it offers an area entirely dedicated to freestyle activities with its snowpark: half pipe, boarder cross...
The 2 Alpes ski area has the particularity of remaining open even in summer. Indeed, thanks to its glacier situated at 3600 m of altitude, it has a skiable sector all year long. Although the area is necessarily more limited than in winter, it nevertheless opens 11 runs during the summer (1 red, 9 blue, 1 green) which are served by 17 ski lifts. And to satisfy a large public, the 2 Alpes Freestyle Land snowpark remains accessible and is becoming more and more the reference for summer snowparks.
