Types of Les Deux Alpes Ski Passes
The Les Deux Alpes ski area is split into two; the Vallee Blanche ski area ( referred to at the resort as the small ski area) and the Glacier ski area ( referred to simply as the Big ski area). The Vallee Blanche ski area covers the smaller part of the ski area closer to the resort, including a lot of the southwest-facing slopes, while the Glacier area covers the majority of the 225 kilometres of ski terrain area. Both areas have pedestrian access. It is important to note that although the Vallee Blanche ski area is closer to the resort, the runs here are made up of reds and tricky blues which are suited to confident intermediates and not exactly beginner-friendly with the bigger ski area having more options for beginners. There are discounts and concessions available on the ski passes for both areas.

This reduction is only redeemable to a family consisting of 2 adults and a minimum of 2 children between the ages of 5 and 18 years.
