The pistes at L'Alpe d'Huez are fantastic; we particularly enjoyed La Sarenne.

Great holiday on and off the slopes!

Excellent ski area with extensive possibilities in particular the off-piste trails are endless. After a day's skiing there is still plenty to do in the resort and the is apres-ski is very lively. Our accommodation was pretty much right on the pistes which was the cherry on the cake - even if I'm sure we paid more than if we had been in a hotel in the centre of Alpe d'Huez.

Great family ski resort

Alpe d'Huez is pretty extensive with different skiing areas. About a 10 minute wait for the main lifts in themorning even though we were there in half term so not too bad. However, the easy runs get busy with all the ski school kids and families. It's a bit hectic at times! There is lot going on in the town with a good choice of restaurants and bars. And a nice choice of restaurants on the slopes too - overall not too expensive.

Great value ski resort

Skiing, sun and fun, what more could you ask for? Maybe the only problem here is the fact that everyone loves La Plagne so its gets a bit crowded! The next time, we will come off-season to be able to really enjoy all the possibilities offered by the resort. This is a really ideal ski are for good snow especially around the Pic Blanc and the snowparks are really great. But there isn't only skiing in Alpe d'Huez! The highlights for us were the snowmobile tours and the atmosphere in the bars at night... Had to force ourselves to go to bed!

Reasonably priced ski resort with a friendly atmosphere

Serious competition for the more popular resorts like Val d’Isére or Méribel. Prices are extremely reasonable and this resort doesn't have that pretentious feel that a lot of the big resorts have. Great place for kids and apres ski - there’s loads of bars here to try - O’Sharkeys, Smithy's, The Crowded House are just a few. The skiing here is comparable with the best.
