Alpe d'Huez is such a nice friendly resort. Its one of the nicest i have been to. The boarding is amazing when theres a bit of snow as there is you can just cross the mountain face and do all the off piste bits. Its brill as well for just learing having fun in the baby park; it gets a bit messed up and busy but when the snows so soft and slushy (due to the huge amount of sunshine) its brill for soft landings. The big park is for the more experienced and its generally better kept. The have even built a little half pipe perfect for learning. The snow can be a bit sketchy at times in the season but for boarders head up in the afternoons and enjoy a bit of choppy slush! As for it not being very

Just back from a great week in Alpe D‘Huez. Considering it was half term week there was little overcrowding and the lift system is very efficient, although they physically inspect passes at all gates (no automatic machine readers). The maximum queuing time we experienced was 20 minutes to get on Marmottes Gondola to Glacier - however if we had waited until after 11:00 it died right down. Skiing was great - late afternoon on lower slopes it became a bit slushy. Signal and Auris en Oisans very good and quiet - i.e. get away from the nursery slopes at Alpe D’Huez. Marmottes up to the Glacier is definitely worth a trip. The resort is great for kids. We are intermediates with children

The village/town is quite pleasant with a fair few interesting bars/resteraunts. First couple of days lacked snow coverage but I felt that the lift company didnt make the best of what snow there was and many runs were in poor condition. Think by and large the piste grading was over exaggerated, i.e. many runs were over graded. A lot of the black runs were more like reds. The tunnel is difficult but mainly due to a) its poor condition and b) the boarders scrapping the top snow off and polishing its base to ice! Snow on the glacier was beautiful, intermediate skiiers dont be put of by the black grading of the runs, apart from top 20m or so they are lovely runs more red/blue than anything else.

Alpe dhuez was a lot better than i expected. There were some really good pistes which I imagine would have been excellent if the snow was a bit better. Off piste was amazing for the first half of the holiday but unfortunately turned too icey towards the end. the night life was absolutely excellent and there was loads of choice-prices typical of french alps unfortunately.

The resort of alpe d huez has one of the most extensive ski lift systems in europe, skiing to your doorstep isn an option. its virtually the only think you can do. the slopes are mostly south facing and youll find that if you go towards the end of february / beginning of march, the weather is usually fantastic. there are many challenging runs including the famous tunnel run. won let the cat out of the bag, just try it! this resort also has the longest black run in europe which on a hot day is great to do as you can stop off and have a sun bath on the way down! theres many bars and restaurants, the best bar being the underground. this bar is below one of the resorts hotels and is a central
