Head up to the peaks, every day!

Thanks to Villarais chairlift, open all summer long, you can get to the Signal at an altitude of 2,100m in less than 10 minutes. Then just enjoy the view or go walking from there.

This is also the departure point for the Villard-Reculas downhill MTB trails and you can get to Alpe d’Huez in just 20 minutes.

The Signal Telemix hybrid lift on the Alpe d’Huez side is also open, offering a connection to Villard-Reculas and to be able to reach the Alpe d’Huez Grand Domaine easily and enjoy all the possibilities over there.

What is there to do from the Signal peak?

Head up to the Pic Blanc: in just 60 min you’ll find yourself right at the top, at an altitude of 3,330 m, and a spectacular 360° view
