Where to buy ski passes in Alpe d'Huez

There are two main ways of purchasing your Alpe d'Huez ski pass: online and in resort.

How to buy your Alpe d'Huez ski passes online – A step-by-step guide
To save time, you can pre-order your Alpe d'Huez ski passes online. The process is really simple: 

  1. Click on the button below, which will take you to Alpe d'Huez's main lift pass website
  2. There’s a very simple drop-down menu that prompts you for the number of days required, start date for your passes and number of people in your group, as well as their age
  3. Any discounts you may be eligible for will be automatically applied to the price of your passes
  4. Choose if you want ski insurance or not – we recommend you add it
  5. State whether you already have a rechargeable card (in which case you'll need to insert its WTP number – see below for more information) or you don't (a €2 fee will be added for the card)
  6. Choose whether you want your ski passes to be delivered to your home address for a small fee (allow at least 10 days for delivery outside France and 7 days within France), or you prefer to pick them up at one of the ski pass offices with only a 2-day delay
  7. Pay for your ski passes

That's it, you're all ready to hit the slopes!

How to buy your Alpe d'Huez ski passes in resort
You can also buy your pass at one of the lift pass offices when you get to resort. There are three main ticket offices in Alpe d'Huez. The flagship head office is located right next to the slopes at the DMC lift station at the top end of town. If you are staying in the Les Bergers quartier, it's easy to get your ski pass from the commercial centre where, on the first floor, is another series of SATA Ski cashier windows. The Marmottes lift is literally 20 metres away from the door to this lift pass office and the desks can be accessed from both road level and from the slopes by the Marmottes lift. For those staying in the old town, there is a lift pass office in the Office de Tourisme, next to the ESF ski school. The cashier windows are up the escalator and inside the tourist office on the left-hand side, so it couldn’t be simpler. Next to the lift pass/tourist office is the famous Alpe d’Huez “lobster pot” lift system which will whisk you up over town to the DMC, from where you can head up the Pic Blanc or Signal. Alternatively, you can also walk around 50 metres and jump on the new gondola cross-town lift.

If you're uncertain of the pass you need or are looking to see how the weather is before buying your pass, then this can be a good option. The lift pass office staff is also great at advising exactly which pass is best for you while some passes, such as beginner lift passes, are only available at the ski pass offices. Be warned, though, you may have to queue, especially at busy times.

How ski passes work in Alpe d'Huez

Ski passes in Alpe d'Huez are loaded onto a rechargeable SmartMedia card, which is more or less the size of a credit card and has a chip that stores the lift pass information. This hands-free card is read remotely at the entrance of the lifts, so you just need it to put it in a pocket on your left side (many ski jackets have a special pocket on the left sleeve) and the turnstile will activate remotely as you pass through. Keep it away from your credit cards, mobile phone or other ski passes as they may obstruct the card reading. Hands-free cards cost €2 in Alpe d'Huez, and this fee is not refundable.

What is a ski pass WTP number? You can recharge and top-up your Alpe d'Huez hands-free card as many times as you want over several years. In order to do so, you need to enter the card's WTP (Wireless Transaction Protocol) number when purchasing your pass online. You can find this number on your card. After you've recharged your hands-free card in advance, you can generally go directly to the lifts without having to stop at the lift pass offices.

  • A hands-free pass costs €2 if you don't already have one to recharge
