Visitor Reviews of Alpe d'Huez

David from United Kingdom writes:

This was my first visit to Alpe d'Huez (22/03/14 to 29/03/14). We had a fresh dump of snow over the first couple days which made the conditions perfect. The runs were awesome and so was the apres-ski! I'd definitely go back here. We stayed in the Les Berges apartments, which had its own outdoor heated pool. I would stay here again, great apartment and close to local supermarket. I give Alpe 5 out of 5!
