Ski Vaujany Alpe d'Huez

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.

For both beginners and advanced skiers, the ski slopes of Vaujany and Alpe d’Huez are perfect for relaxing to very challenging skiing. Treat yourself to a fantastic skiing experience on snow-sure slopes with the world’s greatest height differences in a breathtaking environment. Unspoiled and away from the crowd.

Alpe d’Huez is one of the most famous ski areas in France. More than 250 kilometers of slopes and 87 lifts ensure that everyone will have a good time here. With a capacity of 160 people, one of the largest gondolas in Europe will take you from Vaujany to 2050 meters in 6 minutes and another 4 minutes later to 2800 meters in the middle of the immense ski area of Alpe d’Huez. In addition to this gondola, you can also go to the ski area with a cabin lift.

The descent of the Sarenne is a real challenge for advanced skiers; 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 (= 2230 meters downhill). The Pic Blanc is also the starting point of the breathtaking descent via the piste “the tunnel”, one of the most challenging sections of the Alps. There are also many opportunities for ‘hors piste’ skiing.
860 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 different than alpine skiing, you can also go cross-country skiing or take a walk with snowshoes (rackets).

Check the website of the ski station for the current information about lifts and slopes.

The ski area of Alpe d’Huez is also a great environment for families with small children. It is not without reason that picturesque Vaujany received a Golden Ski Award as the best ‘small family resort of the year’ in the world.

Vaujany is ideally suited for people who want to combine a large ski area with many possibilities with the tranquility of a small ski village. For the non-skiers, or if you want to do something different for the day, the Espace Loisirs in Vaujany offers an indoor pool, hammam, sauna, jacuzzi and fitness room. Since December 2012, Vaujany has a large underground ice rink, where you can skate for an afternoon or evening. There is also a bowling alley. More information about Vaujany.
