Events in Alpe d'Huez
Alpe d'Huez hosts many sporting events, but not only! In fact, the resort offers a wide range of activities throughout the year.
In January, one of the resort's most popular events takes place: the International Comedy Film Festival. The cream of the French comedy scene comes to the festival, which becomes a funny version of Cannes. Discover your favourite stars and their latest films over 5 days.
In April, the resort organises the Sarenne snowbike race, starting from the Pic Blanc at 3,330 metres above sea level and heading down to the village, each at their own pace. To reward the participants, the resort invites them to a friendly brunch. As they say - first comes work, then comes fun...
If you are a thrill-seeker, you should come to Alpe d'Huez in July! The Megavalanche is a mountain bike race that takes the most fearless ones down a 1000 metre vertical drop, starting at 3,300 metres above sea level. This internationally renowned downhill race is a real challenge!
In July, junior golfers have their own event: the 9-hole Compact d'Or is a golf competition for children aged from 7 to 12 years, combining a sports programme with fun and entertainment.
In August, the football is in the spotlight: the football championship takes place in the multi-purpose hall of the Palais des Sports, with no less than thirty participants. Whether you are a football fan, a professional or even a child, there is a competition for everyone!
And at the very end of August, it' s shopping time: the local shopkeepers of Alpe d'Huez display their products at attractive prices during the big flea market.
