Guaranteed snow on a ski trip to Alpe d’Huez

As well as Alpe d’Huez being well-known as one of France’s top ski resorts, the area is also famous as a gruelling hill climb in the Tour de France, consisting of 21 hairpin bends, ascending 1860m to the summit at an average gradient of 8.1%.

Instead of basing ourselves in the main resort, we recommend the super-stylish Moontain Hostel located in the traditional village of Oz en Oisans for our school groups. The hostel offers ski-in/ski-out accommodation which is fully linked to the whole ski area, provides greater value for money and avoids the long climb by coach (and those 21 switchbacks) to the main resort. Your school group is going to love the purpose-built hostel with its contemporary décor, funky art and well-designed rooms which make it feel more boutique than your traditional school group hostel.

The Alpe d’Huez ski area with over 250km of pistes is large and varied with great skiing for all levels in your group. With 41 green pistes and 34 blue, there’s plenty for beginners and intermediate skiers, while the very best skiers in your group can tackle the incredible Sarenne black run which is renowned as the Alps’ longest black run, coming it at a muscle-straining 18km.  Finally, with a glacier providing all year round snow, Alpe d’Huez is a great option for school groups travelling early or late in the season.

  • Funky, boutique-style hostel 
  • Ski-in/ski-out accommodation with access to a large ski area
  • As a glacier resort, you are guaranteed snow in Alpe D’Huez
Alpe dHuez Moontain Hostel

Moontain Hostel

  • The Moontain Hostel is an ultramodern, purpose-built hostel in the Alpe d’Huez ski zone. Students love the hip décor which puts the Moontain in the more luxurious end of student hostels. Purpose-built as a hostel, the rooms have been cleverly designed with ample storage and mod cons such as USB ports. The Moontain is a new generation of youth hostel with a modern, boutique feel.
  • The hostel is found in Oz en Oisans at 1350m and is just a short walk from the main village lift. There is a drag lift right outside the hostel that allows you to go up and then slide down to the main gondola. At the end of the day, your group can ski back to the hostel – almost to the front terrace.
  • There is a funky restaurant, bar, and plenty of chill out zones with free wifi throughout. There is a spacious ski room with heated boot shelf.
  • Full board with picnic lunch.
