Alpe d’Huez: sunshine skiing in France

Bluebird days and great equipment

Sunshine, blue skies and glistening snow: What sounds like every skier’s dream come true, is an everyday sight in Alpe d’Huez. With more than 300 sunny days a year, the French ski resort is aptly nicknamed the “island in the sun”.

The popular Alpine holiday destination is located at 1,860 metres above sea level in the Grandes Rousses mountain range. It is one of seven resorts that make up France’s fifth largest ski area, the Grand Domaine.

In addition to plenty of sunshine, Alpe d’Huez offers fantastic views of Ecrins National Park and Mont Blanc as well as an abundance of diverse, partly very challenging, slopes.

Ready for the challenge? If you’re planning to tackle one of Alpe d’Huez’s steeper slopes, it’s vital to have high-quality, reliable equipment. If your gear is not up for the challenge, it might be a good idea to visit one of the INTERSPORT Rent shops on site!

Our RENTertainers recommend

Our tip for action junkies is the famous Sarenne run. With a total length of 16 kilometres, the Sarenne is the longest black run of the Alps. It starts from the top of 3,300-metre Pic Blanc glacier and follows a winding path down to the centre of Alpe d’Huez. Are you up for an altitude drop of 1,800 metres?

By the way: If you need reliable equipment or expert advice on how to tackle the Sarenne, don’t hesitate to consult our RENTertainers on site!
