Beginner Ski Area in Alpe d'Huez
To the east of the resort is the area known as Les Bergers, a great spot for beginners due to the number of gently rolling green runs that lead back to resort.
From here you also have direct access to the higher slopes of the area via the three stages of the Marmotte Bubble or by taking the Fontbelle chair or Les Romains high speed chair and redirecting your self by line of sight or following the well signposted routes across to the base of the DMC.
At the top of the first stage of the Marmotte bubble is the aptly named Marmotte restaurant from where you have many options, both red and blue, that all wander back down to Les Bergers. Should you find yourself here by mistake, don’t worry, returning to Alpe is easy either by the Rif Nel drag, free local bus or simply walking. You can also retake the Fontbelle chair, the Marmotte bubble or Les Romains high speed chair and follow the signs.
