Ski Alpe d’Huez

Enjoy the Grandes Rousses Massif and Pic Blanc at 3330m


Alpe d’Huez ski resort

If you wish to ski the longest black run in Europe head to Alpe d’Huez and the 16kms, ‘La Sarenne’.  You’ll 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 39 green runs of Alpe d’Huez should meet your needs. 

Alpe d’Huez is one of the top five alpine resorts in France and an ideal resort for skiers and snowboarders of every level.  Set against the back drop of the impressive scenery of the Grandes Rousses Mountains, it boasts an excellent snow record and weather conditions. There are now some 700 snow canons ensuring that the season is long and skiing is as uninterrupted as possible.

Alpe d’Huez is one of the highest resorts in the Southern Alpes at an altitude of 1860m.  It is served by 240 km of pistes with 88 inter-linked lifts.  The Pic Blanc cable car takes you to the breathtaking Pic Blanc Glacier at 3330m, the start point for a number of off-piste itineraries as well as ‘La Sarenne’.  A large viewing platform allows you to enjoy the magnificent panorama before setting out on one of the 19 black runs and some of the most testing terrain in France. 



For beginners this is an ideal resort with the wide gentle lower slopes providing 39 confidence boosting green runs.  The local ski schools have an unrivalled reputation in giving novices the best possible start.

Intermediates and snowboarders can enjoy the 32 blue runs as well as 28 more challenging reds with fantastic excursions to the satellite villages of Auris-en-Oisans, Oz-en-Oisans, Vaujany and Vilard Reculas.   For diehards who can’t get enough in daylight hours there is now floodlit skiing on ‘Le Signal’

For snow-boarders there are usually bubble or chair lifts available and a good snow park has been built in the main bowl which attracts some high level competitions throughout the season.

Staying in Bourg d’Oisans

For those looking for a more peaceful end to the day, or a more authentic French experience staying in Bourg d’Oisans offers a perfect solution for your ski holiday.  You’ll be sharing the bars and restaurants with the French locals as well as other tourists ‘in the know’.  Expect a little less English speaking, a lot more value for money and a much quieter night.

Both houses offer a very spacious and relaxing environment.  Ideal for family groups who need quality time to wind down or time for the children to rest and recuperate, as well as for groups that simply don’t want the cramped conditions often associated with staying in a ski resort.

There is ample free parking by ‘The Granary House’ and ‘The Stable House’ and because it’s centrally located it benefits from snow clearing by the local snow ploughs.  The route to Alpe d’Huez is 14km and takes about 20 minutes, travelling up the road made famous by the Tour de France.  There is  plenty of centrally located free parking in Alpe d’Huez when you arrive.  If some of your party are ready to come home early or you want to head up the mountain after them there is a regular bus service between Bourg d’Oisans and Alpe d’Huez.
