Alpe d'Huez

Ski resort and 21 mythical hairpin bends

From all the mountain passes of the Tour de France, the Alpe d’Huez is most likely the best known climb. This 1120 metres long climb is also one of the most spectacular ones. Those who love cycling tourism dream about riding this mythical route. At 14 km from the top, you’ll find 21 ‘count-down’ signs up to the top. From the Alpe d'Huez, you can also visit the lakes of the Oisans (lac Besson, lac du Carrelet, lac Noir).

L'Alpe d´Huez is one of the jewels that attracts the most visitors to the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. It is also a world-renowned ski resort perched 1,860 meters above sea level on a south-facing plateau. Its ski area, Alpe d´Huez Grand Domaine Ski, includes no less than 250 km of slopes.

The Pic Blanc and the ski area

We cannot talk about Alpe d'Huez without mentioning the attraction of the Pic Blanc, its highest point. Tourists flock to this view perched at an altitude of 3,300 meters, to enjoy one of the most beautiful panoramas in France. Offering a 360-degree panorama, the site is classified three stars in the Michelin Green Guide.
The ski area covers the Alpe d'Huez, but also Auris, Oz en Oisans, Vaujany and Villard-Reculas. It’s a huge playground where you can be sure to enjoy the snow throughout the season. A thousand snow guns are installed throughout the site, between 3,060 meters and 1,035 meters above sea level.

The different tracks of the domain

The alpine domain welcomes skiers of all ages and all levels. The site includes:

The Nordic area includes 6 blue runs and 3 red runs.

In terms of prices, the Alpe d´Huez Grand Domaine Ski domain offers three options:
