It’s impossible to get bored in Les 2 Alpes in the summer!

Return to the list

The Les 2 Alpes summer season starts in a little over 15 days and will be in full swing for 10 weeks non-stop over 7 different events.


When you picture the mountains in summer, if you’re imagining a desert from a western (you know the ones, with tumbleweeds blowing across the ground) then you’ve obviously never been to Les 2 Alpes! We run, ski, swim, dance, eat and clink glasses here… Put simply, we live the holiday experience to the full!


We’re getting off to a really strong start with the MTB Opening Party (regulars will know it by its former name, the Free Raid Classic). Get your mountain bike out, we’re waiting for you to join us at this fantastic, fun event starting on the 19th of June. Enjoy an exclusive opportunity to explore the Les 2 Alpes MTB area! As the bike park is closed to the general public until the 20th of June, only 600 lucky guests will have the chance to christen the slopes in this sneak-preview! Concerts, entertainment and a BBQ will round off the celebrations for this full-on party.


Those looking for an amazing spectacle shouldn’t miss Crankworx Les 2 Alpes. The world’s biggest mountain biking show is stopping off in Les 2 Alpes between the 9th and 12th of July. The best athletes in the world will be joining together to compete and put on a fantastic show for you! Come and cheer them on in the Downhill, Slopestyle, and more. Thrills guaranteed.


Speaking of thrills… Come and take a spin around Hades with the Mountain Of Hell. It’s a somewhat scary name for an enduro freeride race that always attracts a huge number of participants, with a starting line on the glacier in the snow at an altitude of 3,200 metres. This year is Samurai-themed! You’ll need to choose between a cycling jersey and a kimono between the 17th and 19th of July in Les 2 Alpes


If you’re a gourmet with a love of tradition, you absolutely must come to the ‘Fête des Foins’ Hay Festival on the 2nd of August! It’s a reconstruction of the traditions and customs of yesteryear, all in period costume. It’s also an opportunity to feast on local produce and celebrate with a local tipple. A guaranteed change of scenery!


Families also deserve their own race, so from the 3rd to the 7th of August, it’s the 1, 2, 3 Tribu in Les 2 Alpes! An entire week devoted to families, with a range of challenges for them to tackle in their “tribes”!


Road cyclists won’t be left out either. Bicycles can hurtle down the asphalt of some of the Oisans region’s most beautiful landscapes. That’s the plan for the Gran’Fondo, a road-cycling race on the 22nd and 23rd of August, followed by a stage of the Haute Route, one of the most difficult races in the world, on the 26th of August.



May you all have a wonderful summer!
