Full review

2Alps is an enormous resort with its own glacier offering year-round skiing. For snowboarders, it also has an impressive board park that gets moved to the glacier in the summer. Although the vast ski area gets frequent dumps of snow through the winter, the lack of trees on the mountain and the sometimes gale-force winds usually blow the fresh stuff away (the two main gondolas usually get closed while this happens too). If you do manage to get good conditions though, head up to the glacier and have an explore round the un-pisted, un avalanche controlled ‘La Grave’ (take a guide).
What 2Alp lacks in conditions, it makes up for in resort night life. ‘Smokey Joes’ bar (located right near to the main Jandris lift in the centre of town) offers great après ski as does ‘The Red Frog’ located at the top end of town. For a meal that is, quite frankly, out of this world head to the ‘Celliere’ (just round the corner from the Red Frog) but book up in advance.
