The most famous stage of the Tour de France lies in the impressive Grandes Rousses mountain range: Alpe d'Huez. But the region doesn't just enjoy a reputation of the extraordinary in regards to cycling - the ski area has belonged to the world's top 10 for skiers and snowboarders since the 1968 Olympic Games and has therefore become one of the most renowned winter sports areas in France. Sunny pistes with high snow security up to 3,330 m, unlimited deep snow fun and spectacular snow parks ensure a very varied time on the piste! Alpe d'Huez lies at an altitude of 1,860 m and offers a spellbinding panorama of the Pic Blanc summit (3,330 m) and l’Entendard (3,470 m), as well as various shopping centres with cafés, bars and countless small shops, inviting you to explore them.
