Visitor Reviews of Alpe d'Huez

Once again I find myself writing regarding some of the reviews made. One from Jan 2015 makes the comment of Alpe d'Huez'Terrible resort' as he wrecked his skis here. But it's not the resort's fault we had the poorest falls of snow in recent memory. I also wondered what the conditions were like in other resorts at the same week, so I asked my friends in Espace Killy, Serre Chevalier and Courchevel and guess what? They all said the same. The other unfair comment was that the reviewer though the slopes were infested with beginners who should not have been on the Deuxieme Troncon. Whatever happened to freedom of movement ? Last comment: if you can see a stone avoid it. If you haven't got the skill to avoid it, you shouldn't have been on that slope!
