Alpe d'Huez forms part of the larger Grandes Rousses, which means that you’ll have no less than 236km of pistes right at your doorstep. With one of the world’s most spectacular unbroken verticles, this is the kind of resort in which even a seasoned pro could never run out of challenges. That being said, there’s also a gigantic area dedicated to newcomers and amateurs close to the resort centre and even those taking a break from skiing will find every desire catered to in Alpe d'Huez Grandes Rousses. And for a unique thrill you won’t get anywhere else, take a trip up to the highest point the lift serves and if you’re blessed with a clear day, you can see more of France than from anywhere else in the country.
Both Chambery and Grenoble Airports are about two hours away from the very centre of the resort.
