Skiing is ok and can be great but the resort suffers badly overall as it doesn’t link well across the mountain. Many bottlenecks create huge queues and busy slopes that result in a poor experience...

Been here twice, many years ago (2008 and 2010), to this day I keep fond memories of the mountain and towns around. The slopes are amazing, everything from beginner ones to challenging ones like the 16km track that starts at the peak, or "the tunnel" :) Hopefully, I'll return again some day in the future. I don't know if it's still a thing but I remember going to an outdoor thermal pool and had a blast somewhere in Huez close to the lifts. If it is, I highly recommend going, especially on a snowy day!
Lovely week long ski holiday in Alpe d Huez. Many options on blue and green runs for the early intermediates. Also a enough reds for those who want. Lovely slopes for kids to learn on in the main resort.
