The mountain village of Vaujany is the gateway to an extraordinary ski area in the French Alps: Alpe d’Huez Grand Domaine. Vaujany is only 2 kilometers from Chalet Solneige.
The ski slopes of Vaujany and Alpe d’Huez are perfect for both beginners and advanced skiers.
Alpe d’Huez Vaujany is one of the most famous ski areas in France. More than 250 kilometers of slopes and 87 lifts ensure an amazing holiday for everyone! One of the largest gondolas in Europe takes you from Vaujany to 2050 meters in 6 minutes. Another 4 minutes and you will arrive at 2800 meters. This provides access to the immense ski area of Alpe d’Huez. In addition to this gondola, you can also take a cabin lift to the ski area.
Skiing for all: beginners and advanced
For beginners, the smaller part of the area, “Oz-Vaujany” is most suitable. It is easily accessible and has many slopes for beginners. The Vaujany ski school offers lessons for beginners here. The Oz-Vaujany area is part of the larger ski area of Alpe d’Huez. This is ideal for families and groups of different levels of skiers. When your kids are on ski lessons in Vaujany, you can enjoy the more challenging slopes yourself, and you can easily come back to pick up the kids.
For advanced skiers, the descent of the Sarenne is a real challenge. With a length of 17 km, this is the longest black run in Europe. It is possible to ski from the Pic Blanc (3330 meters) in one go to 1100 meters. The Pic Blanc is also the starting point of the breathtaking descent via the piste “the Tunnel”. This is one of the most difficult and challenging runs of the Alps. There are also many possibilities for off-piste skiing.
Snow cannons ensure that there is always enough snow. You can ski on the higher slopes until the end of April.
If you want something other than downhill skiing, you can also go cross-country skiing or take a walk with snowshoes (rackets). Check the website of the ski station for up-to-date information about lifts and slopes.
The Vaujany ski area is also a great area for families with small children with many opportunities for hiking and sledding. Click here for: Ski passes, ski rental, ski lessons.
