Les Deux Alpes is home to France’s largest glacier which makes it ideal for a bit of spring shred. With a massive park that is usually in full swing from January, they normally have it dialed in for the slushy late-season conditions.

With a huge 120 meter-long halfpipe you’ll be able to catch some air without fear of nailing yourself on an icy bottom, plus you can grab a few sweet pipe slashes on the way down. They have a  range of jumps and a rail line that’s the envy of most other French resorts, so you and your friends would be in no danger of missing out on some fun whatever the conditions.

This year the resort is open until the 26th of April, and if you go late enough in the season you can even get away with camping at the foot of the mountain to reduce your expenses even more!

Fun Fact: Les Deux Alpes is well-connected to the La Grave ski area which stays open until the 4th May this winter!
