Ski Chalets in Alpe-d'Huez


Alpe d'Huez is known as "L'ile au Soleil" - "Island of the Sun" - as most of its slopes face south.  The resort forms part of the Les Grandes Rousses ski area. Alpe d'Huez also lays claim to 'La Sarenne', the longest black run in Europe; 16 km long and an incredible 2210 m vertical drop. Despite this fearsome statistic, Alpe d'Huez is well suited for beginner and intermediate skiers.  Off-piste skiing is also excellent, with decent snowfalls, exceptional scenery and sunnier-than-average weather. Boarders and freestyle skiers are well catered for with a fairly decent snowpark and a funpark for those starting out.

Alpe d'Huez has until recently been perceived as a largely French resort, although it is now welcoming more and more British skiers.   It draws a large weekend crowd, with its own altiport and Grenoble only 90 mins drive away. Restaurants are of a good standard both on and off the mountain, and nightlife is ever improving with the arrival of the snowboard crew on the scene.
