Les Glaciers bar/restaurant terraceLES GLACIERS (££)

Sector:  Glacier
A massive hanger-sized structure plonked on a wide ledge at the edge of the glacier at 3200 m (10,496 ft). The building may not be regarded as attractive, but it is functional & warm.

There is an exterior snack-bar with a patio area overlooking the base terminals of the nearby Puy-Salie T-bar tows: serving hot drinks; chips; hot dogs; burgers; etc. Lockable ski racks are also positioned in this area: they are operated using tokens (jetons) from a nearby vending machine. The far side of the building has a huge south-facing terrace, furnished with plenty of deckchairs plus tables & chairs.

Inside, there is a full-service bar and two separate restaurants:  the main one is self-service; the other is à la carte.

The main canteen is busy & brash, but the space is roomy & bright and the food selection is fairly wide: with ready-made salads and a choice of around 10 hot dishes, including pastas plus meat & vegetable combos. Microwaves are provided for public use here, for reheating food if it cools too quickly out on the terrace.

Contained within this same space, but segregated from the self-service canteen, is the à la carte dining section; this has been decorated in faux chalet style to give a slightly more refined atmosphere. It features more select variations of the main restaurant's meals, including fair-value set menus.

Sunset Skiing
Once per month, on the nights of the full moon, you can ski on the glacier until the sun sets; then enjoy a lively dinner with entertainment & dancing in Les Glaciers, before skiing back to resort under the light of the moon (and/or torchlight).

You must book in advance; the ticket price is inclusive of evening lift pass, dinner, guided descent, plus a reviving vin chaud on return to resort.

A truly amazing experience and an unmissable event.

Bookings can be made through 2 Alpes Loisirs, whose office is in place des 2 Alpes in the centre of the resort.
Tel. +33 (0)4 76 79 75 03

NB: full moon dates vary every season, please check before you visit.
Please also note that this event is subject to favourable weather conditions.
