Skiing at Easter


#1

I am looking at going skiing at Easter time - has anyone been to the resort at Les Deux Alpes? Does it have good snow coverage? [br][br]I went to Austria last year and we had to get bussed to another town to ski as ther hadn’t been enough snow! I really can’t be bothered doing that again![br][br][br]Elle.

According to the website it’s guaranteed natural snow because the resorts on a glacier or something. And its the French Alps which have had pretty good snow this year anyway, apparently.

Hi guys,[br][br]I am happy to announce that the Easter ski coach from London is guaranteed! Book now to secure your spot.[br][br]As far as snow goes, Les Deux Alpes does boast guaranteed snow all year round! The hostel our trips stay at is located just a 5 minute walk from ski lifts, which take you up to ski on Europe’s largest skiiable glacier. The only time you’ll be bussed elsewhere is on our optional day trip to the ski slopes are Serre Chevalier (included in your lift pass), to give our intermediate and advanced skiiers a chance to try some new runs.[br][br]But with 100 pistes at Les Deux there are plenty of runs for everyone to choose from.[br][br]We hope to see you guys there - and maybe teh Easter bunny too![br][br][br]Amelia Lawrence[br]Festivals, Events and Ski Manager[br]Topdeck Travel

I am also thinking of doing this tour if I can get the time off work and I have only ever tried down hill skiing once so am a novice! I was looking at doing a contiki Ski trip, however I like the sound of the Top Deck one as it seems to include more.

I’m going on this trip too. I´ve skied a lot before since I’m from Norway but I have never been in the French alps . I’m travelling from London.

I ended up going last year and it was AWESOME! I spent hardly any money when I was there, because practically EVERYTHING was included (brekkie, lunch and dinner;lift pass; lessons; ski hire; etc) and the ski rep who was there had been in Les Deux Alpes all season so she was super-helpful and friendly. the hostel was pretty basic (but not dodgy!) and there were some wicked people on the trip.

DO IT! You’ll love it!!
