Ski area Alpe d’Huez-Grand Domaine

The ski area of Alpe d’Huez is the hidden gem of the French ski areas. Great variety, beautiful scenery, beautiful trails, directly linked to many beautiful mountain villages such as Villard Reculas, Vaujany, Oz-en-Oisans …

Longest black descent in the world

The ski resort of Alpe d’Huez has 250 kilometres of slopes and is perfect for both beginners and the experienced skiers. The highest point is the Pic Blanc at 3300 meter. There is also a glacier that provides the necessary snow. On the top of the Pic Blanc the track La Sarenne starts with a length of 16 kilometres. This is the longest continuous black descent in the world. The cracks can also enjoy the steep walls that can be found at the front and back of the Pic Blanc. The more novice skier can benefit the easy slopes immediately above Alpe d’Huez.

For snowboarders, there is an extensive snowboard park with a boarder cross, big jump, half pipe and a ramp. You can also find 40 kilometres cross country runs, which can be found at an altitude of 2,200 meter and are open late in the season.

The area is very accessible using various efficient ski lifts. From Oz-en-Oisans it takes only 10 minutes to get to Alpe d’Huez and Vaujany and from there you can go all directions. Many slopes of Alpe d’Huez are on the sunny south. Sunlovers will enjoy these slopes for sure.

Thomkins family January 2017

We had a great time here the week Jan 14-21 2017. We were lucky with the weather as there was a huge dump of snow just before we arrived and then it was blue sky the rest of the week. Ski area is extensive and with a good variety of difficulty. You can technically ski back to the chalet but it mean going slightly off piste and through a few trees!
The hosts were really good. We had Rees and Rebecca who were really friendly and helped out with anything we needed. The food was great and they catered well for one of our group who has various food intolerances. One stand out bit of service from them was taking us down to the ski hire shop on the Sat night, even though we were late arriving due to an accident on the road from the airport, to sort out all our equipment. Such a massive time saver as you can just get straight on with the skiing come Sunday morning.
The chalet itself is great, lovely views out of the main living area and it was so nice to have a fire going when you were hanging around in the evening. It was warm throughout as well and the sauna and hot tub were great additions.
Chalet Beyond were really helpful too and we can’t recommend them enough. All the arrangements went through smoothly and they sorted everything for us. In fact, we had booked into the sister chalet Brocard, but as there was no one in Gelinotte, they upgraded us free of charge which meant everyone in the group had their own room.
A couple of minor negatives. There is currently no wifi in the chalet which is a shame, although we understand they are planning on installing it. Also, as has been mentioned in other reviews, the walls connecting this chalet to the one next door are really thin and so if you do have any noisy groups in there, they can keep you awake at night. Fortunately we only had it on a couple of nights but I can imagine it would be really annoying if it was like that every night. Take earplugs!

    First of all we were a bit reluctant towards catered chalet formula, if you want to be just with your family in a house. But we liked it more than ever, a fantatic chalet ( escpecially the seperate childrens play room) and moreover the fantastic food, very varied, fresh and gourmet food. The host and hostess were superb. Nothing was too much. Adapting to situations and being flexilible, the kids and us have been very spoiled by you. Of course the host and hostess are so important and this was a perfect combination. Thank you so much for your care and we wish you all best of luck.
