Lifts & Attractions in Les 2 Alpes

Jandri Express

The lift offices offer a substantially reduced pass for disabled skiers, plus a free pass for a carer if required. You need to take proof of your disabled status (French people have disability ID). If you need a carer, they’ll look for some sort of justification for this as well. If your disability is visible (eg wheelchair user, loss of limb etc) there should be no question, but the cashier will clear the sale with a supervisor first.

Sit-ski access is restricted to certain lifts – ask at the ticket offices for details. You can definitely use the Jandri Express, which gives you access to most of the resort’s main pistes.
