15/05/2019 - SnowTrex

SnowTrex invites you to PowderWeek!

PowderWeek with a versatile programme

The spectacular season opening takes place every year at the beginning of December in the glacier ski area of Les 2 Alpes. PowderWeek has been an integral part of the SnowTrex programme for over 15 years now and attracts visitors every year with a fantastic offer.

Après ski is a top priority at PowderWeek.

After the day on the slopes, the party continues in the open-air après ski area. Then, skiers and snowboarders can enjoy good music with grilled sausages and mulled wine for a small price for the rest of the evening. After all, PowderWeek is far from over after the lifts have closed. Fun tournaments such as snow volleyball, live concerts and parties in the hottest locations of Les 2 Alpes continue into the early hours of the morning – and there are plenty of these party locations throughout the French ski resort. The 20-strong SnowTrex team makes sure that the participants don’t miss a thing during the event week and that they all have a great time.

Glacier ski area Les 2 Alpes

Les 2 Alpes is known and loved as a versatile party and powder ski resort. With 200 kilometres of pistes, it is one of the largest glacier ski areas in France. The sunny southern exposure and slopes at well over 3,000 m above sea level provide the recipe for great snow on the wide glacier plateau, especially at the start of the season in December!

Different zones from green slow slopes to deep black ski routes offer a wide choice of slopes for beginners and pros, slope carvers and deep snow fans. A large snow park, which was built at the beginning of the season at 3,200 m with snow guaranteed, provides a playground for freestylers of all skill levels. During the season, the 240,000 m² fun area is located at 2,600 m in the “La Toura” piste area and thus in the middle of the skiing area.

The snowpark of Les 2 Alpes is situated at 3,200 m altitude.

Accommodation in Les 2 Alpes

Every year, SnowTrex has a large selection of accommodation available for its guests at the highest standards and top prices. All houses are located close to the slopes. It is therefore only a few steps to the lift entrance. Many different accommodations from simple apartments to luxury chalets are available for your stay during PowderWeek.
