Unique in the world, here you have the chance to ski right down four legendary 2000 metre pistes to the bottom with no need to stop and get the cable car! Welcome to Alpe d'Huez, alias the Sunshine Island, the most action-packed and fun-filled alpine ski resort.
Let’s take a look at the stats: a 3300 m high skiable area with 250 km of pistes for all levels and types of snow sport, Europe’s longest piste (16 km from the Sarenne glacier), a Mecca for new types of snow sports (AirBoard, Snake Gliss, Be One, Snow Trikke) and one of the Alps’ largest snowmaking facilities.
