Access for Non-Skiing Visitors
Les Deux Alpes has a wide selection of sports & leisure activities, plus a good range of attractions suitable for non-skiing visitors. It also has an extensive network of ski lifts that are accessible to pedestrians
Non-skiers who wish to travel up to the high-altitude restaurants, viewpoints, and sightseeing attractions can purchase a ‘Pedestrian Pass’ covering up to 13 of the station's ski lifts: including all cable cars & gondolas, the Dome Express funicular
, plus some of the chairlifts.
The full area version also includes one visit to the Grotte de Glace (Ice Cave)
and the ice rink
, plus two visits to the open-air swimming pool
. The villages of Venosc
& Mont-de-Lans are also accessible by lifts that are covered by pedestrian passes.
A special walkers version of Les 2 Alpes' piste map is available from the local tourist board offices and lift pass kiosks.
A wonderful attraction for all visitors, easily accessible at the top of the funicular
under the summit of the Dome de Puy-Salie, at an altitude of 3245 m (10,644 ft).
The cave was dug out using hand-tools only, and burrows 30 m (98 ft) down into the ancient ice of the Roche-Mantel glacier. Inside, artists have created tunnels & chambers filled with ephemeral sculptures, backlit to glow eerily in the muted light.
Open daily 10:00–16:00hrs; small entrance charge.
