ALPE D'HUEZ - Information

Resort Information  ALPE D'HUEZ

Alpe d`Huez has enviable snow and weather conditions which can be enjoyed against the back drop of the impressive scenery of the Grandes Rousses Mountains.

If you wish to ski the longest black run in Europe, head to Alpe d`Huez and the 16kms, La Sarenne. You will have to be an advanced skier to start the run - and also to finish it as there are no exit routes on the way down. Should your intentions be a little less ambitious, the 41 green runs should meet your needs. Beginners will enjoy the fact that nursery runs are to be found in the centre of the resort.

For non-skiers there is a large outdoor swimming pool and indoor pool, an Olympic sized ice rink and fully equipped sports centre with tennis and squash courts, aerobics, table tennis and many other activities.More than 40 bars and restaurants should complete your after skiing entertainment.
Alpe d'Huez has some of the best and most varied skiing in the world with 235 km of pistes for every standard of skier. The main ski areas are Signal, Marmottes and Pic Blanc, which rises to 3,330m where there’s a viewing platform.

There are now some 700 snow canons ensuring that the snow is in the best possible condition throughout the season. An excellent lift system means that queues are kept to a minimum even during the busiest periods. There is now floodlit skiing on Le Signal for the really keen. The lift pass includes free days at Les Deux Alpes or Serre Chevalier which offer a great day out. Transfers are also possible by helicopter - weather dependent.
