    About the Summer Lift System in Alpe d'Huez

    If you're looking for winter prices see Ski Pass Prices; or winter Ski Lift Guide for information about the ski lifts. For details about the Summer Lift System, read on...

    The DMC and the Pic Blanc lifts operate in summer and are bike friendly (as you'd expect with this being the home of the Megavalanche MTB race each July). The Poutran 1 & 2 lifts also operate in summer, as well as the Alpette and the two-stage Dome des Rousses cable car. 

    The lifts are generally open from 09:00 to 17:00. They occasionally close for lunch too, so don't get caught out and try to plan around this.

    Lifts will stop running in the case of high winds of bad weather but you can check on this before you head out by looking at the live lift status

    Summer Lift Pass Prices and the Summer Lift Pass Options are slightly different to winter - it is worth checking the which lifts you can use before setting off. Paragliders also have access to a number of lifts throughout the summer.

    Paragliding
    It is not always necessary to use the lifts, as there are many take-off points at resort level. Find companies to go paragliding with.

    Babies
    It is not recommended to expose babies to sudden changes in altitude or temperature - if lift staff consider your child too young to travel on certain lifts they reserve the right to refuse you entry. The last section of the DMC lift climbs to an altitude of 3330m, you are advised not to take children under 3 years old on this lift.

    NB Alpe d'Huez is a high altitude resort and the lifts can take you as high as 3330m. Please consult your doctor before arriving in resort if you have heart problems or any other medical problem that may be exacerbated by a change in altitude.
