Many people would not automatically think of Alpe d'Huez as a place to come shopping, however the resort boasts a diverse range of stores that are guaranteed to suit sporting lifestyles. As you would expect from an outdoor sports Mecca, there's a choice of sports stores & high fashion labels that offer a good range of clothing in all shapes and sizes for all tastes.
The Alpe d'Huez Palais des Sports et des Congrés has so much to do on a bad weather day you'll struggle to fit it all in: health & fitness suites, aerobic classes, indoor climbing, golf driving range, roller hockey, speed ball, futsal, basketball, squash, tennis, table tennis, badminton, archery, crossbow, martial arts, indoor pool, tightrope walking (suspended adventure trail with safety net) should keep you busy... If you need to wind down after all that exertion you can join in a yoga class!
Admission is free with a Visalp pass, although equipment hire is extra and you may need to pay a small supplement for some activities.
