In the Central French Alps, 1860 meters above sea level, is the premier ski resort region of Alpe d’Huez, one of France's top, internationally recognized ski precincts, ever since it hosted the Winter Olympics in 1968. Its highest peak is the Pic Blanc at 3330 meters and it is from here that you can take in one of the best panoramic views in France. In total, Alpe d’Huez consists of 10,000 hectares, 840 of which are skiable; 250 km of ski runs link the resorts of Alpe d’Huez, Auris, Oz-en-Oisans, Vaujany and Villard Reculas.
Here, there is something for every level of skier, with pistes ranging from beginner to advanced. If you're a newbie to the slopes, there's even a Beginners Ski Pass just for you! Sound confusing? Take a tour with a guide and get your bearings. This is classic skiing terrain, which has seen much improvement and landscaping in recent years. Additions to conveyors and lifts have also been implemented.
Alpe d’Huez offers variety, in picture-perfect settings, and with guaranteed snow cover. The resort facilities offer plenty of indoor options as well with a choice of accommodation (chalets are contemporary in style and have recently been renovated), restaurants, countless amenities including pools, spa and sauna facilities, programmed activities, entertainment and special offers. The many varied activities include aqua gym and zumba, curling and dog sledding, helicopter rides and classical music... And when the sun goes down, and you're done with apres ski, there is also night skiing!
