Default Alpe d'Huez vs. Les Deux Alpes

Hi there!

We are planning a ski trip to either Alpe d'Huez or Les Deux Alpes
from the 5th to the 9th of December.

We are a group of 5, 2 snow boarders and 3 skiers all with a very good
level. Which of the two stations do you recommend?

Has anybody been there before on these approximate dates? Was the snow
ok?

Thanks!

That's like saying who should I go out with... Kate Moss or Jodie Kidd.
It has got to be better than sitting in an office in England, hasn't it?

Yes. Who knows what the snow will be like, this picture is the main
pistes in l'alpe d'Huez on the 18th of December 2001.

L'Alpe d'Huez.

Although apparently they've filed the rough edges off the infamous
Tunnel run. Shame.

Hi Gabriel!
Personnally I ThinkAlpe d'huez will be better for you.
Simply:
Alpe d'huez 2 Alpes
-1860m 1600m
Better for alpe d'huez because you'll go in the starting season and it's
also higher you'll find a better snow.
Black slopes are higher in Alpe d'huez than in 2 alpes. Also Youi 'll have
fun in a better snow if you're a very good skier as you said. Difficult
slopes are at the bottom of the resort in les 2 alpes also more people with
a less good quality of snow especially during the start season...
But concerning the ambiance and nightlife, it's seem to be better in les 2
Alpes. It's younger and there are more better bars and nightlife. But if you
want to have fun daily with good slopes: try Alpe d'huez!

Have fun in France! You're welcome!
