Alpe d'Huez Ski Holidays
The sunny modern resort of Alpe d’Huez is home to a whopping 250km of heavenly pistes, a huge choice of winter activities and phenomenal panoramas across the Ecrins National Park. A lively destination that’s full of energy, you’ll find the après-ski as varied as the skiing.
Explore the slopes
The expansive Alpe d'Huez Grand Domaine ski area links with the villages of Auris, Oz en Oisans, Vaujany and Villard Reculas to create an almost infinite ski area with everything from easy greens to highly demanding off-piste skiing. There’s a real mix of terrain across the ski area, including a snow park and boardercross zone, making it a popular choice among groups of mixed abilities.
Heading up to the heady summit of Pic Blanc at 3,330m for jaw-dropping views across to Mont Blanc is a must. You can then choose from several iconic descents, including a daring back run featuring a treacherous mogul field accessed by skiing through a tunnel, and La Sarenne, the longest black run in the Alps at a whopping 16km.
Enjoy the resort
Aptly dubbed ‘l’Île au Soleil’, the large purpose-built resort of Alpe d’Huez is perched high on a sunny plateau – the ideal place to relax on a scenic terrace and drink in those staggering alpine views. The resort offers excellent slopeside convenience, easy transfers from Grenoble, and there’s a real buzz in town.
Alpe d’Huez is one of the liveliest party resorts in the French Alps, with a huge choice of bars, restaurants, live music venues and clubs, including the world-famous La Folie Douce. Make use of a great range of resort facilities which include an ice rink and cinema and don’t miss a visit to the magical sculptures at the Alpe d'Huez Ice Caves.
