Detailed freeride guides to kickoff your adventures in the French Alps.
Snow, sun, adventure: this popular ski resort in the French Alps has it all. Known for having the most days of sunshine on the slopes in a year, Alpe d’Huez is nicknamed ‘l'isle de Soleil’ or The Island of the Sun. Sitting at a mighty 1869m above sea level, and encompassing the Sarenne glacier at the high point of Pic Blanc, there’s reliable snow coverage and the season is long, spanning from early December to late April.
Being the 5th largest ski area in France, not only is there an impressive amount of slopes to suit every level, but there’s also a wide and ever growing variety of freeride routes.
