Les Deux Alpes is incredibly popular in summer, attracting thousands of mountain bikers, hikers, cyclists and summer skiers. Yes you heard that correctly, the glacier is open in summer for skiing, snowboarding and access to the snowpark.
Lifts are open to give access to the summer ski area, and mountain bikers and hikers can take the Jandri express up as far as the bottom of the glacier to enjoy some of the many MTB trails and walking routes on this side of the valley. The Village 1800 and Diable lifts are also open on this side in summer.
On the opposite side, the Vallée Blanche lift gives you access to more mountain bike trails and you can also take the Venosc gondola during the summer months.
Lifts will stop running in the case of high winds or bad weather, but you can check on this before you head out by looking at the live lift status.
Summer lift pass prices and lift pass options are slightly different to winter - it is worth checking the which lifts you can use before setting off. Paragliders also have access to a number of lifts throughout the summer.
