Although not purpose-built as a skiing resort, Alpe d'Huez is nonetheless so facility-rich that it might as well have been. It boasts a sports centre, an outdoor pool and even an ice rink - all free for holders of full area ski passes! Its schools and the gentle slopes near the resort make it a particularly good option for beginners, but there's certainly no lack of exciting runs for intermediates. The slopes are mostly south-facing, so they're well lit and usually covered in the generous snow for which this location is well-reputed.
