An efficient lift system gets you up the mountain quickly to explore the Alpe d’Huez Grand Domain Ski area, home to 250km of pistes and one incredible 16km run that goes from the very top of Pic Blanc, dropping all the way to 1,830m.
With loads of groomers. a snowpark and boardercross zone it’s well suited for families, first timers and boarders. And with extensive big mountain skiing, there’s also plenty for serious freeriders too, with more than 20 high-altitude off piste trails and several untracked gullies to explore.
