WINTER IN VAUJANY

SKIING AND SNOWBOARDING IN VAUJANY, OZ AND ALPE D'HUEZ

Thanks to continuous investment over the last 20 years, Vaujany has developed a ski area which includes snow canons covering all pistes, which ensures good skiing throughout the season.

From Vaujany you have access to the Massif des Grandes Rousses, the ski resort of Alpe d’Huez and surrounding resorts of Auris-en-Oisans, Huez-en-Oisans, Oz-en-Oisans and Villard Reculas. The Alpe d’Huez ‘Grand Domaine’ offers world-class skiing and is the 5th largest ski area in France. Highlights include Pic Blanc, the area's highest peak, at 3,300m, from where you can ski the longest black run in Europe, the world famous Sarenne (16km).

The vast ski area includes 248km of marked pistes and 900 snow cannons which, along with the high altitude of the resort, ensures good ski conditions throughout the season. For beginners and experienced skiers alike this offers ideal leisure and high performance skiing.

In total there are 84 lifts serving:

  • 42 x Green runs
  • 37 x Blue runs
  • 39 x Red runs
  • 17 x Black runs
  • THE LIFT SYSTEM

    Vaujany has benefitted from a lot of investment in recent years. With hardly any queues, a fast 160 person cable car (télépherique), only a few minutes walk from our chalets, whisks you up to 2800m and links to the extensive 250km ski area of Alpe d'Huez, Grand Domaine in less than 10 minutes. 

    Beginners and little ones in particular will benefit from a large scale project, undertaken in the summer of 2018, to replace the old Montfrais bubble with a new one. This means faster access to Vaujany's ski area (a great place to find your legs on beautiful, quiet and tree-lined runs) and the ESF ski school.

    The final of Vaujany's 3 resort lifts is a newly replaced bubble (summer 2017) which whisks you up from the bottom of the La Fare black run to the main lift station.

    All of Vaujany's pistes are covered by snow cannons while the Grand Domaine is equipped with one of the largest snow-production plants in Europe ensuring skiing from early December to late April.

    Whether you are an advanced off-piste skier/boarder or a complete beginner, Vaujany is a great place to learn. Find out more about group and individual lessons and guides...
