01 November 2008
The resort of Alpe d'Huez near Grenoble has been hailed as a location that has something for everyone.

Discussing the virtues of the location, The Independent notes that in the first case the resort has a wide range of different slopes that suit a variety of abilities and tastes, plus terrain that is suited for snowboarding, served by 86 lifts and 248 km of pistes.

It also stated that the highest slopes reach 3,300 metres, meaning the area has a good snow record to combat the encroachment of climate change.

The paper also states that the location contains facilities such as a poll, an ice rink, a church holding regular concerts and a large selection of mountain walks.

Another element of Alpe d'Huez that may provide widespread interest is the fact that every summer one of the biggest sporting events in the country takes place as the Tour de France passes through.
