Alpe d'Huez is a lively ski resort and its position will make any skier or snowboarder happy. It has the double benefit of lying on high sunny plateau and being surrounded by an amazing snow bowl, with miles of varied and enjoyable runs and off piste opportunities.
This resort has everything to please no matter what your skiing ability is from wide open blues and greens to challenging black runs. There's 249km of skiing, spread over a huge area, giving endless opportunities to explore and visit different villages without feeling that you are doing the same run more than once. The altitude of the resort means that it can boast of an excellent snow record, with the Sarenne Glacier and over 900 snow cannons.
The Pic Blanc summit at 3,330m affords breathtaking views across the whole of the Southern Alps and provides a wonderful starting point for the Sarenne descent - one of the longest black runs in the world at fully 16km from top to bottom! Alpe d'Huez is ideal for snowboarders, providing two well maintained snow parks and plenty of boarder friendly cable cars and chair lifts.
