Ski holidays in Alpe d'Huez

Known not only to fans of the Tour de France, the Cycling-mountain of Alpe d'Huez, is also very popular with snowboard and alpine skiing fans.The Alpe d'Huez ski resort has very good snow conditions throughout the year because of the Pic Blanc glacier (above 3000 m). Because almost all slopes in the ski area (Les Grande Rousses) are on the South-side of the mountains, the sun shines over these slopes practically all year round. The village of Alpe d'Huez itself is a combination of old-fashioned chalets and modern apartment buildings. For a more authentic-style ski resort, the surrounding villages offer a great choice. The villages around the Alpe d'Huez itself are: Huez, Villard-Reculas, Auris and Oisans, Oz-en-Oisans and Vaujany.

Slope information Alpe d'Huez - Alpe d'Huez

The Alpe d'Huez ski resort is fantastic for advanced skiers because of the large number of black slopes. These are easily accessible by the modern ski lifts, and by a small cable-train. This ski area includes one of the longest black slopes in the world: the Sarene-slope. With a non-stop descent of nearly 17 km, the Sarene ensures that you have a nice long and uninterrupted descent! Another black ski run, the Champagne is also very worthwhile. The long blue ski Signal is recommended for beginners and advanced skiers, this takes you from the top of the signal below the village of Villard-Reculas. There are also countless off-piste possibilities in Alpe d'Huez, with some lovely descents in deep snow. The pure off-piste ski resort La Grave is easily accessible from Alpe d'Huez.
