I really recommend this resort, it’s a top resort. There are some really long runs, there’s the longest black in Europe which I think is about 16km. It’s a very good ski area and ideal for all round skiing, there is something for all levels. We are intermediate to advanced but we had some people with us who were skiing for only the second time. They improved a lot while they were there. It’s a great resort for learning, and it’s good for children, it would be the perfect place to take a 3 year old. There is a bowl area which has a nursery area, and for advanced skiers there is a tunnel which cuts through the mountain and takes you to an area with blacks and a mogul field. That black area isn

ADH is great resort no matter what your ability. The slopes closer to town are mostly blues and greens and for the slightly more adventurous the reds will lead you nicely back to the resort - you can get a great variety without travelling too far. The 250km of slopes comprises 4 separate areas, each are a resort in themselves and cater for differing needs (quite and secluded or full-on nightlife explosion). The area boasts the longest black in Europe (16km) The Sarenne and one of the most difficult black runs The Tunnel, both accessed via the Pic Blanc glacier. The lift systems are excellent - with very very few button or drag lifts

It is a mixed bag really, plenty of wide Red and Blue pistes to get your speed up or just practising your turns! Some decent steep runs if that is what you like. Once you have done what is in front of the resort head over to Auris En Oissans and Le Chatelard for a day to break it up. Some good runds over here and feels like a different resort. Also up on Oz En Oisans gives you some fanstatic views down the valley. The run down to Vajany is a must and you can reward yourself with a snack at the bottom. Alpe DHuez also boasts the longest Black in the Alps with the Gorges De Sarenne, the bonus being a bar at the bottom. Boarders beware a lot of this is quite flat so wax up and get some speed! T

For progressing onto reds and blacks, although there is only one black you can't go far wrong than head over to Auris En Oisans connected by Alpe's very own scare chair. The ride over from Bergers is something not to be missed. Although the runs over that side are short on some days my son and I were the only ones on them. Add to that the possibility for some easy off piste it would be hard not to recommend Auris as a destination for a few hours. The lifts were only busy mornings and afternoons just as ski school was starting. My biggest criticism - and for me its somewhat spoiled the skiing- was the lack of piste preparation on some runs particularly from the mid station Marmottes and Signa

The skiing in Alpe d'Huez is greay with a good mix of challenging blacks, good reds and lots of excellent blues. There is also extensive off-piste and it's well worth getting a guide or instructor to take you out. Alpe dHuez has an extensive ski area, if a little bleak with virtually no trees. Lift queues were reasonable. Sadly, the après ski appeared to be non existent; a couple of bars with some music at the bottom of the slopes would have been good. However, if you wanted a late night out ‘on the lash’ then the resort is very accommodating, unfortunately the beer is very expensive
