Alpe d'Huez Resort Info

Alpe d'Huez skiing

Alpe d'Huez ski resort offers something to challenge all levels of skier. Two of the biggest attractions for the more advanced skier are the 2230m vertical drop and a 16km black run. Off-piste skiing is also excellent, with decent snowfalls, exceptional scenery and sunnier-than-average weather. Boarders and freestyle skiers are also catered for with a fairly decent snowpark and a funpark for those starting out.

Alpe d'Huez ski resort

With development into a ski holiday destination beginning in the late '60s, Alpe d'Huez did for a long time remain a largely French resort, although it is now welcoming more and more British skiers. Alpe d'Huez still draws a large weekend crowd, with its own altiport and Grenoble only 90mins away. Restaurants are of a good standard both on and off the mountain, and nightlife is ever improving with more and more bright young things gracing these parts.

Overall, Alpe d'Huez is very good, particularly for families who want to eat well, enjoy great scenery and have access to a ski domain to suit all levels.

Snow Overview - France  (snow news updated 05-Mar-2015)

Great skiing is on offer across France at present, particularly in those areas that caught the most snowfall at the start of the week. High winds unfortunately limited some ski areas, but with sunny skies firmly in place, Thursday 5th March was certainly a great day to be out on the slopes. Some of the heaviest falls of snow this week were picked up in the Grand Massif ski region, with resorts such as Flaine (63/240cm) and Samoens (92/168cm) reporting some great powder conditions. Similarly, the Chamonix (20/210cm) valley was offering some great fresh tracks following the snow earlier this week. The Ski Club’s Ambassadors in the Espace Killy both reported some fantastic powder conditions across the area. The best snow was above Val d’Isere (113/175cm) at le Fornet and up towards the Pissalis Glacier. Sadly high winds curtailed lift operations at several resorts, including Alpe d’Huez (109/200cm) which was able to run only 10 of its 49 lifts and Serre Chevalier (35/150cm) had 18 of its 62 lifts shut due to high winds. Sunny skies are forecast for the weekend and into next week as well, with rising temperatures set to provide some very pleasant skiing conditions.

European Weather Outlook

A settled spell of weather is finally set to arrive in the Alps, bringing sunny skies, light winds and hopefully some great skiing weather. Temperatures are set to rise over the weekend, with freezing levels nudging above 2,000m. Therefore expect some softening of the lower and south facing slopes, but not too much snowmelt. It is certainly setting up to be a fantastic weekend. Bright sunshine is also expected for the Pyrenees, making a welcome change following the huge snowfalls during February. The freezing level is set to rise to 2,500m so again expect some spring-like conditions on the lower and south facing slopes. Very heavy snow is forecast for Bulgaria, with possibly as much as a metre landing on the upper slopes. Some rain may fall on the lowest slopes on Friday, but with the freezing level dropping to 500m by Saturday, snow will again fall at all levels. The weather is then expected to clear on Monday – hopefully leading to a sunny week in which to enjoy the powder. Fairly mixed weather is expected over the weekend in Scandinavia, with the possibility of sunny breaks but also some rain/snow showers for all our featured resorts. More settled and bright weather is expected for the new week, particularly in Norway. The rollercoaster that is the Scottish weather is set to continue this weekend. Mild conditions are forecast to move in, raising freezing levels before they drop back down again on Sunday. Some new snow is expected, but this is likely to be limited to the upper slopes and it is possible on Saturday that rain will fall at all levels. High winds are also set to be an issue.
