Alpe d'Huez is one of the top ski resorts in Europe, situated at 1860m in a high open sunny plateau and reliably snow sure with pistes up to 3330m, the biggest vertical drop of 2230m and the largest ski area in France. Add to that more than 300 days of sunshine on average per year, it is no wonder it is called the Island of the Sun. From the top ski lifts you can see a fifth of France if it is a clear day and of course the spectacular Dauphine-Isere Southern Alps all around you. Established in 1928 just above the village of Huez, there has been a lot of development in last 20 years and as a result you have multiple centres, pistes in all directions, modern lifts and 64km of pistes covered by sno cannons. Due to the predominantly south and south west aspects and sunny conditions the season is slightly shorter than in some of the resort in the northern Alps, running from Dec until April.
