Despite enjoying popularity among families, Alpe d’Huez in fact offers experts exceptional terrain options. The black run from the Pic Blanc tram is a great black run to get to the heart pumping, plus there are plenty of off-piste areas for the adventurous at heart. Experts will enjoy skiing or snowboarding off the Marmottes II gondola and Lievre Blanc chairlift. When snow conditions are tip-top, and they almost always are, intermediates have a staggering amount of intermediate terrain to choose from. A large web of green runs just above the base village, offer beginner skiers or snowboarders an optimal learning setting. And four of the beginner lifts are complimentary (i.e., they don’t require a lift ticket).
Freestyle enthusiasts will be hard pressed to find better placed, maintained and designed terrain parks. Alpe d’Huez offers “jibbers” progression parks, pro-level jump, half-pipe and features.
