Been the last 2 summers and always struggled to live in the van in a car park which is not normally the case in the Alps.
There is a huge number of trails here, the high valley has trails on both sides, as well as off each end downwards with good lift access meaning you can do all 4 compass points from the town.
My favourite is the Venosc trail (south) but 666 is also pretty good. Once a year you can also ride some walkers paths as part of the Mountain of Hell which is like the MegAvalanche but more extreme - yes MORE EXTREME! Its the reason I've been there for the past 2 summers.
The venue also has hosted Crankworx Europe always a great week, and has hosted an EWS round in 2013 which I raced as well.
Best thing though is the views, its superb.
I wouldn't go just for this one park, I think there are better in the Alps. Up the road there is also La Grave only 40mins away - if your at L2A at least have a day at LaGrave! Alpe D'Huez is also less than an hour away if you need a change.

Also busy with skiers even in mid-summer.
Not a good town to try and wild-camp or #Vanlife it, you will get moved on.
