Spring in Alpe d'Heuz

Mr Lee02/07/2019
We went in march for a week after a barren spell of weather with very little snow for 2 - 3 weeks and warm temps so snow quality wasn't the best with the daily freeze / thaw cycle. As ADH (Alpe d'Huez) is high, the pistes were not too bad (thanks to the pistuers) but the lower parts of the resort like Vaujany were grass.
There is loads of potential for off piste and some great lines to be had when conditions suit but not when we were there. The longest black run - Sarenne (16km?) is a bit of a let down - reasonably steep at the start for maybe 3-4km and then a loooong flatish cattrack run out that seemed to go on forever which I would imagine be a nightmare for boarders in deep snow. Most of the lifts had a queue of some sort but the longest wait was only 10mins as they run at a reasonable rate.
La Folie Douce provides early apres on the mountain and gets lively, whilst in town there is a couple nightclubs and plenty of bars to satisfy the Party Harder Crew.
Prices were your typical French ski resort - 7/8 euro beers , burger and fries 15 euro , pizza 10 euro and every meal we had was good.
We had a good time even though snow conditions were crap (bad timing) and we would go back.
