Access: Les Deux Alpes is easy to reach by car. There's a motorway all the way to Grenoble, then an easy 65 km drive along the RN 91 to the turning for the resort, itself along an easy road. Driving time from Calais is a little over 9 hours not counting stops.

The nearest railway station at Grenoble 70km (43 miles) away, has a regular bus link and is on the high-speed TGV line so can be reached from Paris in 3 hours or Lyon in 1 hour - making the train-bus combination from these cities probably faster than the airport-airplane-airport-transfer of the air options. 

The airport at Grenoble is the closest, then Lyon, next closest at 160km (100 miles). There is a direct bus link between Lyon airport and Les 2 Alpes named "Satobus". Geneva is 240km (150 miles) away.

Les Deux Alpes in summer
45 tennis courts, table tennis tournaments, cycle races, "Super-Women" (swimming, jogging, aerobics), tennis, aerobics, cycle-cross and skating rinks. Largest summer skiing area in Europe from 3000 - 3600 m.

Les Deux Alpes in winter
