Alpe d’Huez is a resort that ends up surprising a lot of its first time visitors. At first glance, you would not be the first to think it as it simply another purpose built French resort with a few too many unattractive buildings. However, once you spend a bit of time here, you realise Alpe d’Huez has so much more to offer. The skiing in particular combines sun-bathed, snow sure and extensive slopes, all serviced by a fast and modern lift system.

While down in the resort centre, there is no shortage of shopping possibilities along with some great restaurants serving traditional Alpine cuisine. When you put it all together, there is a whole lot going for this resort. Even with its southerly position in the Alps, Alpe d’Huez is easily accessed via either Lyon or Grenoble airport.

There is always a decent amount going on after the lifts close with a wide range of bars and clubs which can get quite lively in peak season. There are some great continental beers on offer, and you can often find live music and open mike nights.

The Alpe d’Huez Ski Area currently has a combined total of 250km of downhill skiing, with 135 individual pistes, served by 80 ski lifts. This is to almost double in a few years once the link with Les Deux Alpes in finished. As a modern resort, all the lifts are fast and efficient allowing you to reach the top of the mountain in good time.

Alpe d’Huez has a good season spaninng from December to late April. Its high altitude combined with the sunny positioning means both the weather and the snow are usually spot on. Thanks to extensive snow making the latter is almost always assured. All levels of skier ability, from beginner to expert, are well-catered for and a large network of green runs can be found directly above the village, making it a great place to start learning.

Alpe d’Huez is especially good for experts as, not only does it have its fair share of blacks and off piste, it also has the longest black in the alps. The Sarenne is 16km long, running from the Pic Blanc down the glacier, and provides a challenging yet equally satisfying run to competent skiers.
