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.
