Exposition

Alpe d'Huez is probably better known for the Tour de France than for the Pic Blanc. Yet this is also a peak 'hors category. With its 3330 meters puts it far above the west facing Belledonne mountain range and thus marks the transition from the Alpine to to alpenhoofdkam. As a kind of outpost captures this markente peak snow from all directions between west and northwest. Weststau is also the creed. Due to the high alpine surfaces to be there early in the season, some snow lying, while from late February the sun the snow on the southern slopes quickly makes mushy.

With bad weather

Above Alpe d'Huez find only barren alpine meadows and rocks. On bad weather days you would be better for the forests around Vaujany, Oz-en-Oisans.
