Welcome to Alpe d’Huez

Ski season lasts from early December to late April, when the sun on its south-facing slopes can become a problem. Some of the ski lifts feel like they haven’t been updated since the 1968 Winter Olympics, but it's hard to find fault with this crowd-pleasing resort.

Summer brings a mix of hikers and mountain bikers – and, often, the Tour de France. Alpe d'Huez is (in)famous for its incredibly steep, 14km access road, whose 21 hairpin curves are a regular highlight of the annual cycling race.
