At an altitude of 1,860m/6,102ft, Alpe d'Huez is one of the most well-known ski resorts in the French Alps and a major alpine hiking and competition venue. Thanks to its 21 hairpin bends, the climb up to the resort is one of the most demanding and legendary stages of the Tour du France race. The steep road to nearby Villard-Reculas commands fine views of the Bourg-d'Oisans basin.
