Les 2 Alpes’ skatepark: a place to hang out that everybody loves!

The great sociable atmosphere and the fact that its riders respect and help each other [and most importantly help younger and less experienced riders] make this a truly unmissable place to visit. There’s a warm, welcoming vibe, which draws in families who often bring a picnic so they can watch the riders do their tricks.

Set at the foot of the slopes, Les 2 Alpes skatepark is run by the DSK 2 Alpes Skate Krew association which now numbers around twenty local members.
It’s open to the many holidaymakers who like to skateboard, though of course young children remain the responsibility of parents.
You can choose between skateboarding, rollerblading or scootering.
You are strongly advised to wear protective gear and a helmet.

Enjoy!

We tell you everything there is to know...

 Different modules to try out…

You can have fun on a full run or practice on one of 3 levels [or zones for beginners…].

a beginner/intermediate space
with a rail, curbs and a manual pad.

an intermediate / advanced area
with a central module called the Chinese hat, a rail and an uphill and downhill ledge, and a slope with a curb to launch yourself onto the 3rd level.

– an advanced / pro area
with a ledge, a downhill rail that’s more elevated than the first 2: higher, steeper, more challenging.

 – a bowl
accessible to all abilities, somewhere everybody can come and have fun.

Their total points for both runs are added together for a final ranking with a huge cash prize into the bargain, and plenty of prizes for everyone!
