ALPE D’HUEZ

EASILY THE SUNNIEST RESORT AROUND, ALPE D’HUEZ IS THE DEFINITION OF SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE, AN INCREDIBLE AREA FOR BEGINNERS BUT STILL ENOUGH CHALLENGING RUNS AND OFF-PISTE TERRAIN FOR ANY VETERAN POWDER HOUND.
IN TERMS OF NIGHTLIFE, AGAIN, ALPE D’HUEZ HAS IT ALL, FROM SLEEPY RESTAURANTS AND BARS FOR A QUITE EVENING TO NIGHTCLUBS THAT KEEP THE PARTY GOING UNTIL THE VERY EARLY HOURS.
COME WITH US TO ALPE D’HUEZ THIS SEASON AND FALL IN LOVE WITH THE PLACE.

Affectionately known as L’île au Soleil (that’s Island of Sun obvs) because of its near-constant sunshine all year round, you’ve got cracking conditions that’ll keep even the most nervous of skiers happy. Those wanting something bigger to chew off have got the Sarenne, the longest pisted slope in the world to tackle – a 16km black run with a 2210m vertical drop, no less, although its rating is more down to the fact that once you’re on, you can’t get off rather than difficulty.

Those up for a hardcore challenge should try The Tunnel – a quite terrifying, sharp black run that feels like it goes on forever. It’s a hard slog with a frequently icy mogul field that you really don’t want to wipe out on. You’ll definitely deserve couple of grande biers at the bottom of that one…

Boarders and parkrats rave about the resort’s two snow parks’ punchy border cross and natural half pipe as well as the specialist boarder areas. See? Everyone’s a winner.

We’re not gonna pretend that Alpe D’Huez has that cute little mountain village charm, but it’s by no means one of those ‘hurts-the-eyes-its-so-ugly’ purpose-built resorts.

What it is, is a party resort. Moreso than most other French resorts in fact, with the arrival of La Folie Douce and the one-of-a-kind Freeride Café with its slide down to the loo and stock market-style drinks prices that change every 100 seconds. We’re not even kidding! It gets messy. Check it out for yourself…
