Les Deux Alpes is renowned for its lively apres-ski
New for the 2021 ski season, we are delighted to introduce the popular French ski resort of Les Deux Alpes. This well-established favourite among British skiers, “Les 2 Alpes” offers fantastic guaranteed skiing for all levels of skier and a great range of bars, pubs and clubs when evening beckons. A lovely choice for a Solos week of exhilarating skiing.
Suitable for all skiers
Covering several peaks and featuring Europe’s highest skiable glacier at 3750m, “Les 2 Alpes” snowsure slopes are set in a spectacular valley and offers magnificent scenery when skiing the glacier.
Les Duex Alpes is part of the Grande Galaxie ski area with access to 220km of downhill skiing with 89 individual pistes, served by 55 ski lifts. The “Les 2 Alpes” ski area extends from the wooded slopes of the resort itself to the snowfields of the glacier offering a variety of slopes for all skiers, from beginners to experts.
Beginners are well catered for with an excellent ski school and several short lifts giving access to the nursery slopes plus the glacier offers lots of gentle runs perfect for gaining confidence. Intermediates will love the immense terrain that rises up to the Mont Lans glacier and has a remarkable underground funicular railway taking you upto to the glacier at 3450m where you can ski the glacier and the runs back down the mountain. Plus to add variety why not tackle the parallel slalom course. The experts among us can revel in the extensive off-piste opportunities including the entire off-piste area of neighbouring La Grave and the ski pass gives you access to tackle the black runs at nearby Alpe d’Huez.
Les Deux Alpes is renowned for its lively apres-ski. After a day of fantastic skiing there is an impressive array of shops, bars, restaurants, clubs to explore all spread along the 2km main street. If you prefer to take a swim or perhaps swap your skis for blades, your ski pass includes 1 free entry to the Swimming pool and ice-skating rink.
This cosy, traditional and friendly family owned hotel is situated in the heart of this excellent resort with the slopes and ski lifts on your doorstep. Perfect for skiers, as you have the advantage to ski back to the door.
Hotel facilities include dining room, lounge with fireplace, bar, relaxation area with jacuzzi and sauna, veranda and large south facing terrace, direct access to the hotel ski room when returning from the slopes
The traditional, comfortable rooms include double beds, ensuite bathroom, flat screen TV, WI-FI and most have a balcony
The transfer from Lyon Airport to the hotel is approximately 2 hours, depending on weather and traffic.
You may either take group ski lessons, private ski lessons or form groups to enjoy exploring the slopes together. Whatever you preference your Tour Leader will be available to help organise your skiing.
Poor piste conditions can be hazardous to ski equipment as uncovered rocks and stones can easily scratch and damage skis and snowboards. We strongly recommend you inspect your ski hire equipment at the start of your holiday and agree the state of their condition with the ski hire suppliers, as clients are responsible for the care of their hired equipment and should this equipment be damaged the ski hire suppliers are within their rights to ask for a compensation payment.
This can be hired in the resort where you will be advised about the most suitable equipment for your standard of skiing. It is very important to have ski boots that are comfortable and fit well, so do not be afraid to keep going back and changing your boots until you get a good fit. For your safety, we advise that you wear a ski helmet wherever possible.

On a skiing holiday, dress is generally very informal, the emphasis being on comfort and warmth. We recommend that you pack a pair of skiing trousers and warm ski jacket or a waterproof shell and separate fleece lining or an all-in-one ski suit. Thermal or silk underwear is recommended. Cotton/cotton mix roll necks, T-shirts or sweat shirts; several thin layers are better than one thick layer. Ski socks, ski gloves or mitts and a hat or headband are suggested. Where temperatures are expected to be well below zero, take a facemask or balaclava. Moon boots or waterproof walking shoes are a “must”. Suntan cream (high protective factor), lip salve, sunglasses and/or goggles are all very useful items to pack. Casual clothes are ideal for the evenings; it is unusual on skiing holidays to dress formally in the evenings.
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €15.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % to add on. If you choose to have ski lessons, you may also like to thank your ski instructor at the end of the week with a token of appreciation.

I was so nervous about embarking on my first Solos Holiday, but I shouldn’t have been – it was the best thing I have ever done!
Wow! Got to see the famous shipwreck beach in Zakynthos with Solos. Can’t wait to discover more of their destinations!
Our tour leader Monica was exceptional! Had such a good time and will be rebooking with Solos. Thanks for a great holiday!
