Alpe-d’Huez is one the larger ski resorts in France, with a modern feel to it. The main village of Aple-d’Huez sits at over 1800 metres on a sunny plateau east of Grenoble and includes the Vieil Alpe area with some traditional chalets.  There are also four satellite villages, the main one being Les Bergers, which has its own major lift system to take skiers and snowboarders up to the main slopes. 

Lift passes for Alpe-d’Huez also provide skiing access in Les Deux Alpes and Serre Chevalier. It is great fun, and less expensive that you might think, to go by helicopter from Alpe-d’Huez to Les Deux Alpes, but buses do run between the two resorts twice a week.  Aple-d’Huez has one of the most extensive nursery slope areas in the Alps, making it ideal for beginners, but there are also plenty of long, testing runs, and some good off-piste. There are also some excellent mountain huts for lunch.  If you’re looking for a lively night-life, the main village is your best option.
