Rumour has it….

Alpe d'Huez

There will be a “super” lift linking the two resorts of Alp d’Huez with les 2 Alpes! There has been speculation of this project for years but our sources reveal that the project is to go ahead in 2018.

The link will be between the top of Signal de l’homme in the Auris sector of Alpe d’Huez and Le Cret in les Deux Alpes. The estimated transit time 17 minutes.

If the link goes ahead, here is how the area will sit among the 10 largest linked areas in Europe:

  1. 3 Valleys (France): 600kms
  2. Les Portes du Soleil (France/Swizterland): 650kms
  3. Les Deux Alpes/Alpe d’Huez (France): 474kms
  4. Paradiski (France): 425kms
  5. 4 Valleys (Switzerland): 412kms
  6. Milky Way (France/Italy): 400kms
  7. Matterhorn (Switzerland): 360kms
  8. Evasion Mont Blanc (France): 445kms
  9. Espace Killy (France): 300kms
  10. Grand Massif (France): 265kms

With property prices here remaining modest compared to other large resorts, perhaps now is the time to be looking to invest!
