Alpe d'Huez, France
The extensive green runs directly above the Alpe d”huez resort are great for beginners who want a variety of slopes to learn the fundamentals without being stuck in a dedicated nursery area. Be warned though, these slopes can get busy towards the end of the day as they form a through-way for people heading home.
There are two free lifts for you to ride and once you’ve got the hang of it, there’s a special lift pass available that gives you access to a series of recommended beginner pistes.
The only disadvantage of this resort is the south facing slopes late in the season losing a lot of snow quickly, but there’s more than enough terrain here to keep you occupied elsewhere.
