FLYING

Reach For The Sky
The Alps are even more breathtaking when seen from a bird's-eye viewpoint, and Les Deux Alpes offers a couple of great ways to take to the air:

Helicopter  Heli-skiing off summits is banned in France, but you can arrange for round-trip helicopter connections with Alpe d'Huez to ski in the huge Grandes Rousses ski domain, or book an excursion to Italy where heli-skiing is permitted.
Sightseeing trips over the Écrins National Park, and transfers from/to the regional airports are also possible.

Paraglider  Launch off into the void above the beautiful deep Vénéon Valley, from the station's permanent paragliding launch site at Diable 2400.
You are harnessed into a steerable paragliding canopy in tandem with a professional pilot, to experience the incredible sensation of soaring silently above the valley with the river and forests far below your feet; before being steered back towards Les Deux Alpes to land on the base-area slopes, a descent of some 800 m (2624 ft).
Bookable through the local ESF ski school.

QUAD BIKES

Start Your Engines
Head for the hills and ride off into the sunset on an all-terrain ‘quad’ motorbike, accompanied by a guide, after the ski area has closed for the evening.
As with the similar excursions available on snowmobiles, you can drive all the way up to Toura 2600 and back. A [car] driving licence is required if you want to be a driver rather than a passenger. The machines have automatic gearboxes and are easy and fun to handle.

There is also a children's quad circuit on the main base-area slopes, near to the Hotel Côte Brune: open all day, for children aged 4 years and above; with various sizes of special scaled-down machines available; helmets are provided.

Enquiries & bookings can be made at the operating company's information hut located next to the children's circuit on the base-area slopes.

SNOWMOBILES

Moto-Neige
This thrilling motorsport is consistently the most requested alternative wintersports activity in the Alps. Unlike the more usual closed circuits available in many other ski resorts, at Les Deux Alpes you can get out into the mountains and actually drive all the way up to Toura 2600 after the ski area has closed for the evening (accompanied by a guide); a round trip of almost 16 km (10 miles).

Each snowmobile can carry two people: drive the machine yourself or hang on tight as a passenger. All participants must be over 18 years of age, and anyone wishing to drive must hold a full [car] driving licence.

Enquiries & bookings can be made at the 2 Alpes Motoneige information hut at the bottom of the Lutins piste on the central base-area slopes, near place des 2 Alpes.
