Ski Alpe d'Huez

A mere hour from Grenoble, Alpe d'Huez is one of those resorts which has outstanding variety and scale of terrain so it offers much for skiers and boarders from humble beginners to swanky experts. It's favoured by the weather gods, enjoying an average of 300 sunny days a year as well as an excellent snow record especially on the Sarenne Glacier, and is the same height as Val d'Isère - that's high, at 3330m on the Pic Blanc. It hosted the bobsleigh event in the 1968 Grenoble Winter Olympics and hasn't looked back since.

Alpe d'Huez has 249kms of piste including some pleasantly easy slopes for beginners, and with new developments at 1860m on the south side of the Grandes Rousses massif, there's plenty for intermediate skiers and boarders too.

However, the big draw for Alpe d'Huez is free skiing and the world-renowned black runs, most of all the Sarenne (although the lower stretch is probably too easy to be rated black). Estimates vary as to its length. Suffice to say, it's long - very, very long - at around 16 kms from the top of Pic Blanc to the bottom. We reckon you may need to take a breather at some point! There's also The Tunnel which is said to be far more challenging, steep-wise although much shorter.

There's great off-piste and, for snowboarders, great powder and two terrain parks.

Après-ski Alpe d'Huez

Alpe d'Huez is party town and has the bars and late-night spots to match. There's a branch of the ski resort favourite La Folie Douce to start you off. For something a little - no, a lot - different you simply must go to the Freeride Café. The difference? A slide down to the toilets and drink prices which go up and down in the course of the evening like the stock market. What is all that about? You could dance the night away at L'Igloo if you've survived that long!

As for other activities apart from shopping, there's skidooing, cross-country skiing, snowshoe walks, husky dog rides and ski joering where you ski along behind a horse, no less. There are also helicopter rides, a climbing wall, a Palais des Sports for indoor workouts and a cinema.

Is that enough for you?

We're sure the answer will be yes, so why not let GetSkiing arrange your holiday?

Gary's Little Gems

"Alpe d'Huez was the first place in the world to have a ski lift - in 1936. The main town looks on to a south facing sunny bowl which is ideal for beginners and for kids/adults who want to try some tricks on the snow park. For keen skiers, there is a great long run down to Oz En Oisans that will test stamina and skills. The Black run from Pic Blanc is also definitely worth a go."
