Review of Alpe d'Huez

5th April 2011 by mabz2011 

Just back from a week in Alpe d’Huez (26th Mar -02 Apr). Left it quite late, I know, but I was surprised at the amount of snow for the first half of the week anyway! Great resort, plenty to do on and off piste. Beginner skier so there were plenty of runs, but alas, due to severe sun and melting these became quite challenging, i now claim I’m an expert water skier! Pretty pricey though, I have to say. Classes and lift pass etc were OK, but drinks were ridiculous. La Sporting (fab food) were charging 10 euro for a pint of beer! Cheapest we came across was 5.50e. All in all though, a great week. Should have gone earlier but would definitely recommend it only if snow conditions are good.
