I vistited Aple D'huez with my partner back in March. We picked the resort because it was a fairly high altitude and we knew it was late in the season. After a poor season for snow we expected the worst. The first couple of days had poor snow conditions - slush and ice. After a big dump of fresh powder on the third day things were definetly looking up and we had several days of great skiing. They are plenty of runs to suit all levels - long blues and reds, and challenging blacks such as Sarenne and La Tunnel (although both of which have suffered this season because of poor snow). The resort itself is fairly good, typical French ski resort prices. The architecture leaves . Read the complete review

Absolutely brilliant guide. Very well done. I'm leaving tomorrow and can't wait. Especially the guide on where to go was great.

The island of the sun, as the purpose-built ski resort of Alpe d’Huez markets itself (hmm, I do have to admit I find myself querying the island bit... but it certainly is sunny!) has to be one of Europe’s top ski destinations. I’ve returned year after year, sometimes twice a season, since 1997 and so have tonnes of others and my aim is to let you know exactly why! SKI AREA Alpe d’Huez lies in the southern most area of Isere, in the French Alps in an area known as Massif des Grandes Rousses. The ski area of Grandes Rousses which consists of 5 principle areas Alpe d’Huez, Auris, Oz, Villard Reculas, Vaujany, covers over ... Read the complete review

I visited Alp d’huez on my second skiing trip and although without question one of the top resorts in France, I found that our lack of ability confined us to about 200 metres of piste for the whole week. Admittedly, there could have been more snow, but we couldn’t really see that it would have made much difference. It was very expensive, the package, the food and the drinks. The locals were typically French (say no more) The village is mainly modern and prefabricated but quite nice. The scenery is nice if you like looking at snow (no trees) I would recommend Alp d’huez to anyone with plenty of money, with a skill level of at least high intermediate and Read the complete review

Alpe d'Huez is where I have spent the last 4 seasons skiing, and I have to say I want to live there. This resort is one of the best resorts I have ever been to, with slopes for all types of people to Beginner’s (which is what I was when I first went there) to expert. This resort has the longest black ski run in the world it is massive and I have to say personally very scary and I refuse to even look down it otherwise ski down it. The slopes on Alpe d’Huez has great skiing for all age groups also, many youngsters are there going down the slopes at a hundred miles per hour with no fear in the world. The Ski School there are also excellent, all of ... Read the complete review
