Alpe d'Huez

Snow sure skiing up to 3300 metres

One of France's largest resorts, Alpe d'Huez can appeal to most levels of skier and snowboarder. Nearly 100 lifts spread out around the mountain above, opening up one of the world's largest lift–served skiable verticals of more than 2,200m.

Although the main resort is largely purpose built, Alpe d'Huez dates back to 1936. The original old village of Huez is 400m below the resort and can be accessed by a high speed gondola.

Being southerly and south facing, Alpe d'Huez makes the most of the available sunshine. However, thanks to it's high altitude lifts, skiing is virtually guaranteed, even in a poor snow season, as the local Sarenne glacier was formerly open for summer skiing. There are spectacular views from the highest lift where, on a clear day, you can see Mont Blanc, Italy and an area that has been calculated to cover one fifth of France.
