Sun and ski in Alpe d’Huez

The resort of Alpe d’Huez boasts an average of 300 sunny days each year, making it a great option for both crisp, bright ski holidays and sunny warm summer getaways.

While the winter months offer fantastic skiing and snowboarding options, equally exciting options are available for sporty types in the summer months. Cyclists can enjoy riding infamous stages of the Tour de France, while there are also watersports, riding and mountain-biking on offer.

Alpe d’Huez is part of the Grand Domaine ski area, combining six excellent ski resorts into a winter-sports paradise. There are runs available for skiers of all ability, as well as excellent snowparks for the snowboarders in your party.

While the resort also offers plenty for solo travellers, couples and groups, families are especially well catered for. The resort has won the coveted ‘Famille Plus’ accreditation from the French Tourism Board, meaning it is recommended for those travelling with children.

Through the summer, lifts run in July and August, offering a great opportunity for walkers, hikers and mountain-bikers to hitch a lift up to higher ground. Once up high, walkers are treated to beautiful mountain vistas - equally stunning in summer and winter.

A trip to the Alps isn’t complete without a taste of some traditional Alpine dishes - most of which centre around melted cheese. Luckily Alpe d’Huez is blessed with a great selection of authentic Savoyard restaurants - try Le Passe Montagne,, La Petite Taverne and Au Ble Noir.
