Two well-interlinked neighbouring sectors, draped over the ridges (the ‘crêtes’) that run along the eastern skyline immediately above Les Deux Alpes.
The Majority of the station's secured black runs are in these sectors, half of which are left ungroomed to increase the difficulty level, particularly the tricky home runs
on the furrowed face of the mountainside sweeping down to resort. There is also a handful of short but worthwhile reds; a couple of good blues; and a number of long green-graded traverse tracks which, as well as facilitating inter-sector links, provide adventurous beginners with interesting excursions.
Toura/La Fée Sectors
Two contrasting sectors at the centre of Les 2 Alpes' ski domain, offering two very different atmospheres & experiences:
is the geographical & social heart of the ski area, with a buzzing atmosphere for most of the day, focused around the station's excellent Snowpark
La Fée 2100 is out at the less developed northern margin of the ski area, and is therefore more peaceful, and filled with secret stashes of freeride joy.
The two sectors are intertwined, and provide a welcome contrast to the much narrower & linear form of the rest of the upper ski area.
Les 2 Alpes' signature ski sector, dominated by the twin pericline summits of the Dome de la Lauze and Dome de Puy Salie, the highest lift-accessible mountaintops in the Isere departement.
Unusually for such an extreme environment, this sector is easily accessible by all visitors, including beginners & non-skiers. All skiers/snowboarders of at least confident novice ability should aim to tackle the full on-piste summit-to-base descent, at least once: from the top of the Lauze T-bar tow
, down to the village of Mont-de-Lans; a non-stop on-piste descent of 2220 m (7282 ft).
Intermediate & advanced standard riders should also head for the exciting and innovative ‘Slide Zones’
in-bounds freeride features, located in the zone just below the Glacier 3200 sector interchange
The summits area of this sector is also linked with the almost legendary off-piste Vallons de la Meije ski & mountaineering domain at La Grave/La Meije
, a truly awesome experience for visitors of more advanced abilities.
