Vaujany

Thinking of skiing in Vaujany? Vaujany has a long history as a traditional Alpine village. Part of the massive Alpe d'Huez ski area, offering world class skiing. One of the best resorts for children.

 Why Vaujany Ski Resort?

  • Vaujany is a charming mountain village
  • There’s first-class skiing for all, with good snow conditions
  • It’s one of the best resorts for children, with a new sports centre
  • The Southern Alps climate means above average sunshine

Vaujany (Alpe d'Huez) Information

Flanked by the Oisans massif to the west and the Ecrins national park to the east, Vaujany is the gateway to the huge Massif des Grand Domaine /Alpe d'Huez ski area. Vaujany itself is a very pretty, charming and peaceful village built on a sunny slope in an area where a micro-climate ensures optimum sunshine conditions.

The facilities and amenities on offer in Vaujany are well beyond those you would expect from a small ski village and include a 160 person cable car that can transport you to 2,800 metres in just 15 minutes! After a day's skiing you can relax in an authentic Alpine ambience without the commercial hype of most purpose-built resorts (likes its huge neighbour Alpe d’Huez).

Après-ski facilities are impressive too in Vaujany ski resort - a new sports centre has a 25m swimming pool, sauna, steam room and fitness hall and there’s an indoor ice rink too. To access the lower parts of Vaujany (where the lifts are) from the higher part of the resort (where the shops/restaurants are) and vice versa there is an enclosed escalator which links the two - saving you from having to walk up and down hills!

Each year neighbouring Alpe d’Huez organises the Sarenne SnowBike, an untimed downhill run on the legendary Sarenne descent – said to be the longest black run in the Alps. You start from the glacier at the summit of the Pic Blanc (3330m) and descend to Huez (1460m) after some 1870 metres of vertical descent along 16 kms of skiing track.

Vaujany has a superb and inexpensive day nursery (minimum age 6 months) and a small, caring ski school. Not surprisingly it holds the ‘Famille Plus Montagne’ label for its children’s facilities. Vaujany is easily accessed from Grenoble (50 km) by main trunk road.

The Ski Club of Great Britain has named Vaujany in France as Europe's most family friendly resort.

Peak Retreats offers a range of Vaujany accommodation options. All of Vaujany's ski apartments have been hand-picked and are of a very high standard (3 & 4*), providing the ideal base for a ski holiday.
