You could hardly wish for a more eclectic ski network than Alpe d’Huez. The resort and its satellites are on a sunny, high plateau surrounded by an amazing snow-bowl with mile after mile of varied on-piste and off-piste opportunities. From challenging black runs to wide open blues and greens, the 249km of piste skiing is spread over a huge area, providing endless opportunities for all levels of skier and boarder.
The ski resort of Alpe d’Huez boasts an excellent snow record due to its high altitude, the Sarenne Glacier and its collection of over 900 snow cannons. It may then come as a surprise to learn that this resort also claims to be the sunniest in France. Whether you believe this claim or not one thing is sure, you’ve got excellent odds on a bluebird day when you have your ski holiday here.
Alpe d’Huez is also regarded as one of the most scenic ski resorts in France, the 3300m Pic Blanc summit affords breath-taking views across the whole of the Southern Alps. It provides a wonderful starting point for the Sarenne descent – at 16km one of the longest black runs in the world! Alpe d’Huez is also ideal for snowboarders, with two well maintained snow parks and plenty of boarder friendly cable-cars and chairlifts.
