Alpe d'Huez & Les Deux Alpes Resort Update

Alpe d'Huez & Les Deux Alpes Resort Update

Thanks to our new in-resort reporter, Masterclass ski school's Stuart, here is the low-down on the current work taking place in Les Deux Alpes and Alpe d'Huez.

With the intention of replacing the old bubble lift that runs from Huez to Alpe d'Huez in the near future, the TO Huez piste is being regraded and new snow cannons are being installed for the forthcoming season. The bowl, although south-facing, is a traditionally a 'cold bowl' and also has the benefit of being in the tree line, thus ensuring a bit more visibility in poor weather.

The Signal de l'Homme side of Auris en Oisans has now had a new blue run cut down its eastern side. This extremely quiet sector of Alpe d'Huez has for years been the domain of the 'off-piste brigade' and red run skiers only. This new run will not affect their territory but will make the access to the green areas of Auris much easier.

Deux Alpes have submitted proposals to extend their pistes with the aid of snow cannons down the north face to the Town of Freney. Freney is a very short hop to Alpe d'Huez. Imagine Vaujany to La Grave on the same lift pass. Watch this space!
