Great skiing even in late March, even if this was an exceptionally good year for snow. There is a wide range of runs for all levels including the ‘Sarenne’ run which is reputedly the longest black run in Europe and the infamous ‘Tunnel’ which requires bit more skill. The lower runs are ideal for training as there is a very progressive increase in degree of difficulty. The local ESF instructors were also very good.

This resort is a ripoff when it comes to ski passes. We bought our passes in the morning and were told the lifts are open, but they wee closed. They didnt want to return the passes. Beware you will NEVER be able to return the ski passes no matter what. To note one ski pass for the day is 52 euros. Will never return.

Ok I was lucky enough to get to Alpe d'Huez after weather from Siberia had hit Europe (and as it happens the UK as well) so potentially experienced some of the best snow conditions for a number of years. This did make for an interesting transfer into the resort from Grenoble but that said given the conditions a certain amount of chaos could be expected.

Note: Grenoble is a small airport that is really only there for ski transfers and is limited in facilities. Transfer time Grenoble to Alpe d'Huez is about 2 hours.

As for the Alpe d'Huez ski area, I expected the queues for the lifts to be busier, yes I had missed the UK and Parisienne half-terms and it was worth avoiding the times of day that the ski-schools gather to hit the lifts. Also the high cable car to the summit of Pic Blanc was busy when the weather cleared enough for La Sarenee to be safe. For the most part the area above Auris tended to be quieter than the main sector.

The ski area has a lot of varied terrain giving plenty of choice for different experience levels and there are nice runs down to some smaller villages that also provide access points from outside of the main town. There are some accessible off-piste sections between some of the pisted parts which are worth getting into however I leave the real extreme areas to experts.

The ski instructor (from the ESF) was up there with some of the better ones I have experienced. She made sure that we got to see the key areas of the resort whilst still managing to fit in exercises that did make my skiing better.

There are a few up-mountain restaurants dotted around the ski area and whilst slightly pricey we did not go in one where the food and service was not excellent.

The town of Alpe d'Huez is larger than you might expect and has a number of good restaurants available which were usually cheaper than the up-mountain restaurants (and covered our chalet-board evenings out really well.)
