Alpe d'Huez ticks all the boxes for a ski holiday. Short transfer (under 2 hours), large ski area (250km with opportunity to go over to neighbouring Les Deux Alpes for the day), and skiing for all abilities. With lots of gentle runs around the town it is perfect for beginners as it is easy for them to ski around with the more advanced skiers, be sure to try out La Sarenne, the longest black run in the world! If your legs can handle it!
The apres is also great with a Folie Douce up the mountain and an ice rink in the town which is always great fun! There is a strip down Rue du Coulet with lots of bars and clubs if you want to carry the party into the night!
