There are seven different catering sites at various altitudes throughout the ski area, all bar one (at La Fée) are directly accessible by ski lift. Most are attractive atmospheric venues offering good-quality à la carte fare; all offer a full bar service and most have snack food options too; three are self service.
Please read our Mountain Restaurants chapter
for specific venue reviews.
There are also plenty of venues
dotted along the main base-area slopes and at the Grande Place in Les 2 Alpes 1800
, all easily accessible from the pistes.
Les 2 Alpes has lots of designated picnic spots dotted around the ski domain, many at spectacular viewpoints. There are always a few benches and tables provided, along with litter bins. The sites are marked on the local piste map with a |P|
To help protect this beautiful environment, please take all your leftovers and/or packaging waste (plus any that you find nearby) to one of the litter bins provided.
There are also two indoor picnic saloons. These are very plain and quite bare, simply furnished with some tables & chairs, but they are sheltered, fairly bright with plenty of natural daylight, and close to other services:
one is tucked underneath the terrace at La Patache restaurant
at Cretes 2100
the other is at the upper-terminal station of the Jandri Express 2 cable car at the Glacier 3200 sector interchange
Phonecard & coin-operated public telephone boxes are plentiful around Les Deux Alpes town; out on the slopes there are some public telephones sited at the largest mountain restaurants. There are also a couple of public telephone boxes in the villages of Mont-de-Lans and Venosc
Phonecards are available from tobacconists and from most supermarkets.
GSM/GPRS mobile phone signal coverage is virtually 100 per cent, within the boundaries of the resort & ski domain
