Visitor Reviews of Alpe d'Huez

Phil from United Kingdom writes:

I was skiing in Alpe d'Huez in Jan 2015 and will never return to the resort. I have owned and used all my own equipment since 2010 and due to the piste bashers pulling large quantities of stones onto the pistes I have had to carry out about 12 hours worth of repairs to my skis which included holes through to the base/core of the ski. On the fifth day of skiing there was a blue run from the Troncon gondola which was popular with beginners and had good snow coverage but overnight the piste bashers made the slopes dangerous with the volume and size of stones on the slopes.

In terms of the layout of the slopes, there are many beginner slopes around the main town for learning on. The best snow conditions were found around the L'Alpette/Vaujany/Montfrais side of the mountain.

In ten years of skiing this is by far the worst ski area which I have ever visited.
