Little known jewel
We spent a week in Alpe d'Huez in March with Mary-Claire and Leo.
The road up to the resort is amazing: hard to believe that the Tour de France uses this for the moutain climb! The skiing is great with spacious, well groomed runs that will meet everyones wishes.There are also off-piste runs for those with more gnarly tastes! Miles of trails that lead to quaint towns with wonderful restaurants and scenery.
The lift system is very good and has a wide variety of options: chairs, gondolas, etc. We stayed at the Pic Blanc, which is within walking distance of the slopes and apres shopping. It is a good 3 star hotel with very comfortable rooms and well appointed bathrooms. The "phone booth" for the free internet is a busy spot! There are fabulous views of the valley and mountains from every window. Ski rental is convenient and reasonable. Overall, an excellent place to ski and sleep!
