In March 2013 we went to Cortina, Italy. It was our second time to Cortina & we probably will go back again but, in 2014 we are going to a new place for us - Alpe d'Huez, France.

Alpe d’Huez is set on a sunny plateau and boasts 300 sunny days per year. Pic Blanc rises 3330m above the plateau floor.The scenery from Pic Blanc as well as the other peaks, is spectacular and breath taking. Many of the slopes are wide open for nice cruising runs. In addition to the cruisers, there are a wide variety of advanced/expert skiing; the most notable being the Sarenne, a 16K black challenge that will test the best experts. Many restaurants dot the mountain and are a welcome break for a quick snack or for taking more time to enjoy a leisurely lunch. The region boasts many other areas including Villard Reculas, Montfrans, Vaujany and Oz en Oisans.
