Alpe d’Huez is nicknamed “Sun Island” due to the exceptional amount of sunshine it enjoys. Tucked in the heart of the Grandes Rousses massif, Alpe d’Huez ski resort benefits from per – fect exposure, enabling it to bask in unobstructed light as visitors and residents enjoy 300 days of sunshine each year. The resort was developed in 1920 on a plateau 1,860 metres above sea level, on the site of former Alpine pastureland for the village of Huez, which lies 400 metres below.
Thanks to its geographic location and its altitude – the ski area infrastructure also lies at 1,860m while the highest summit (Pic Blanc) reaches 3,300m – snow cover is guaranteed all year round and will continue to be for the next five decades. The resort works hard to manage the snow on the slopes (grooming natural snowfall and occa – sionally adding to it artificially when necessary) to ensure skiers can use the slopes throughout the winter season.
More than 250 km ski slopes
The ski area has more than 250 km of descents. Lovers of cross-country skiing are not neglected, with three hectares of runs available for them to enjoy, while non-skiers can take advantage of 35 km of trails that are marked throughout the winter.
Keen on cycling or mountain biking? You’ll find the greatest challenges here! Cyclists can try the legendary 21 turns that make up the cel – ebrated section of the Tour de France. There are 21 signs to track your progress on a 14 km-long ride with a difference in height of 1,120m.

If you prefer mountain biking, treat yourself to a go on the world’s longest descent: 30 km non-stop along the Megav – alanche slope (starting on the snowy glacier and finishing in a green valley) and 260 km of trails and routes across eight communes. Thirty-two marked trails of which 13 cross-coun – try (144 km), 12 endurance routes (98 km) and 11 DH (26 km). Don’t miss the new Bike Park: a green trail starting at 2,100 m, heading towards Club Med and finishing in Les Bergers; a flow trail on Rif Nel; a fun trail starting at 1,800 m; and the free descent suitable for all levels. Not to mention four Bike Parks, a North Shore zone, a Four Cross and three Pump Tracks. With nine gondola lifts to help you do 10,000 m of descents in a day, you’re in the biggest mountain-biking site in France.

Highlights include Les Ecrins National Park, the summits of Le Rateau, La Meije, Les Aiguilles d’Arve, the Belle – donne mountain range and the Mont Blanc. To help you enjoy these magnificent landscapes in summer, there are 250 km of marked hiking trails, including many suitable for family strolls. Whatever the weather, there is plenty to do at Alpe d’Huez. The sports arena includes indoor and outdoor swimming pools and facilities for tennis, badminton, basketball, ar – chery, fitness, jorkyball and more. The altiport offers a base for air activities, while classical music concerts are held in Notre-Dame des Neiges church.
Alpe d’Huez is also known for hosting several major events, including the International Comedy Festival, one of the stages of the Andros Trophy ice car racing championship and, of course, a legendary section of the Tour de France. Not to mention the Ice Cave, which is sculpted every year at 2,700 metres above sea level!
And, of course, the fun continues after outdoor activities. Whether you are a holiday-maker or a night-life lover, you’re sure to relish the vibrant social scene. The resort is full of exciting options whether in summer or winter and offers plenty of ways for you to prolong your enjoyment, with a com – prehensive range of shops, restaurants, brasseries, bars and nightclubs, many of them dotted along the famous Avenue des Jeux and enlivening the heart of Alpe d’Huez.
Last but not least, there’s also Tomorrowland Winter, the electromusic festival that for 24 hours gets both the resort and the 1880 mountains at 3,300m above sea level hum – ming to the beat. This is an exceptional event during which the whole of Alpe d’Huez, which has signed a five-year partnership with the festival, is privatised and welcomes revellers from 113 different nationalities.
