Alpe d’Huez

Alpe d’Huez (Say Alp Doo-Ay) is the 5th largest ski resort in France, with more than 155 miles of terrain. If you’re planning a ski or snowboard vacation, Alpe d’huez is ready for you. Plenty of accommodation options, too.

 

And with its higher altitude (the base is above 6,000 feet) Alpe d’Huez visitors also enjoy reliable snow.

While the sun and easy runs attract families, Alpe d’Huez has much to offer the expert skier. Lifts can take skiers to almost 11,000 feet, with the Marmottes II gondola and Lievre Blanc chairlift both accessing expert terrain. As does the Pic Blanc tram. Including off-piste.

But intermediates should fear not. There’s also plenty of blue and red runs, too. Beginner? There’s also a well-respected ski school ready to take you out on the gentler, lower slopes.
