Single Track

Town:

Les Deux Alpes is the second oldest ski resort in France, however this doesn’t mean it is outdated. In fact during the summer the resort is lively, without being over crowded and boasts a modern lift system to efficiently take downhill and cross-country bikers up the mountain. Les Deux Alpes has a young, international feel thanks to the variety of activities on offer, including mountain biking, cycling, summer skiing, golf, quad biking and the summer luge, as well as a large range of restaurants, bars, shops and clubs.

At the south end of the resort the valley drops away into the Veneon valley and the unspoiled medieval town of Venosc. A high speed gondola links the village to the resort.

Biking:

Les Deux Alpes is a hidden gem for the down hill mountain biker, with quiet, well designed and maintained trails for all abilities. The lifts open from the middle of June until the end of August. The resort has hosted the World Downhill Cup and annually hosts a popular downhill event, the Mountain of Hell.  It has recently become the first resort outside of North America to host Crankworx.

Mountain biking is serviced by nine summer lifts which run from 9am until 8pm, with over 100km of dedicated mountain bike trails stretching from the glacier at 3200m down to the forests in Venosc at 720m. Terrain varies from year-round snow on the glacier, to a lunar type landscape, down to steeper switchbacks through the meadows leading back to the resort and on through forests to the lower villages of Venosc and Mont de Lans.

All trails are colour codes, ski slopes style, with greens as the easiest, through blue, red and finally black for the experienced rider.

Les Deux Alpes location also has great interest for the road cyclist being close to the Col du Lautaret, Col du Galibier and Alpe d’Huez via the Col de Sarenne. It has also been used as a finishing stage to the Tour de France, thanks to the forested switchback roads leading up to the resort. For a breath taking balcony ride back to the resort you must not miss the alternate climb via Le Ponteil hamlet and Bons on the D220.
