1) The weather’s always bad

Les 2 Alpes have known more than 100 sunny days in 2016: this is 20 days more than the national average!

5) Nothing ever happens
Les 2 Alpes is most certainly the resort that organises the highest number of events during the summer season! These photos were taken during Les 2 Alpes’ Outdoor Festival (ridiculous obstacle course – from 22nd to 25th June 2017) and the Mountain of Hell (finale – from 30th June to 2nd July 2017). One of the events was new and the other is somewhat of a tradition.

9) It’s not child-friendly

... with a nursery, a recreation center, child care, animations, shows, recreational workshops etc.

10) It’s miles from anywhere

Set at an altitude of 1,650 metres, the resort of Les 2 Alpes is at the heart of the Ecrins mountain range. A short car or bus journey will take you to the nearby national and regional parks, as well as big cities such as Grenoble and Lyon (1 hour and 2 ¼ hours respectively). From either of these cities, you can jump on a train, hop on a flight or drive on the motorway to wherever you want to go.
Did you know that Les 2 Alpes is just a 3 hour drive from Switzerland (Geneva) and Italy (Turin)? See, anything’s possible! ;)

Lots of love from our very own heaven on earth! ;)
