    Sun-drenched skiing with superb facilities

    Alpe d'Huez has been nicknamed 'the Island in the sun' for a very good reason. Boasting the fifth largest ski area in France, there is a good variety of skiing for all abilities. A great family resort you will find excellent ski school, a wealth of amenities including a large outdoor pool and skating rink. The resort is also a mecca for younger groups looking for some lively après ski with some superb bars and nightclubs.

    Ski information


    Unbeatable wide gentle green and blue runs for a successful start to skiing. The well-regarded ski school will provide the essential basics.


    The variety of skiing is excellent and the consistent good conditions are difficult to match elsewhere. Fearless intermediates should enjoy most of the super long black runs from Pic Blanc and there are some lovely long runs down to 0z and Vaujany. Most intermediates would be working very hard to cover all areas of Alpe d'Huez in a week.


    Ideal for experts as here you'll find some of the most testing terrain in France, including La Sarenne, one of the longest blacks in Europe and the notorious Tunnel Run. The resort also offers many off-piste options for the more advanced skier or boarder.
