We were up skiing again today and took a rest on the sunny terrace in our Hotel we are using for the Megavalanche 2012 – the Beau Soleil.
We are really excited about this hotel – the location is perfect, the food is good, and the bar and terrace area will make for a great post ride atmosphere.
We took this photo while sitting on the terrace today.
You can book your accommodation directly through PolkadotStop here
We took this photos while skiing at our local ski resort on Christmas day – yep Alpe d’Huez ! I know its a hard life but someone has to do it. Anyway the photo shows the hotel we will be using for for the 2012 Megavalanche in Alpe d’Huez taken from the main DMC lift system .
You can reserve your stay in the hotel for just a 10% deposit * until entries go on sale in the middle of January.
The Beau Soleil is perfectly placed next to the main lift station that is used for the Megavalanche qualifying and race itself. The hotel boasts secure bike storage loads of car parking and is close to the bars and expo area.
* (The deposit will ride to 30% after this date)
Hopefully the snow will have gone by July !
We have used our local knowledge and contacts to get what we think is the best bike friendly hotel accommodation for the 2012 Megavalanche. We have teamed up with the Hotel Beausoliel just 10 seconds (YES 10 SECONDS bike ride !) from the main DMC lift station that takes you to the Megavalanche Race and Qualifier Start line and also access to all the other fantastic Alpe d’Huez trails.
The organisers of the Megavalanche in Alpe d’Huez have released the dates for the event. The event will run from the 16-22nd July 2012. We have kind of outgrown our chalet accommodation that we usually provide and so for 2012 we have teamed up with PolkadotStop to provide exclusive use of the very popular Vallee Blanche Hotel in the old part of town in Alpe d’Huez. The hotel has ample bike storage, wifi, terraces and bar. Most importantly they have friendly knowlegeable staff (most of which live in the area year round) and know the Megavalanche event inside out. You can book your Megavalanche 2012 accommodation directly online here
For more megavalanche info we have also set up an information site at
The Mountain of Hell 2012 dates have been announced for the weekend of 13-15th July 2012. We have hotel accommodation in Les Deux Alpes itself for the event. More info can be found here. Based on these dates and other events going on in the area (such as La Marmotte Sportive and the Alpe d’Huez Triathlon) it suggests that the Megavalanche will take place on the weekend of the 21st and 22nd July 2012. This is at time of writing yet to be confirmed.
But that did not stop our guests having one final ride down naked…….
