Review of Alpe d'Huez

16th February 2015 by ianbrer 

Just visited Alpe d’huez for the week 7th-14th. Feb.; first time at this resort staying at Hotel Les Cimes which was excellent, although the closest lift Grande Sure was a very slow 2 man chair.
Overall impressions of the resort were good but I was a bit underwhelmed with the quality of the lifts in the central Alpe d’Huez ski area, pretty slow and very crowded - there was always a queue at every lift in the village base. The lifts in the outlying areas (Vaujany/Auris) were OK, and I think that if I was going here again I would base myself at Vaujany, especially as this was, for me, the most enjoyable of the skiing as well.
