Vaujany has traditionally been a small village resort in the Alpe d'Huez region, but recently it has financed rapid expansion through re-investment of the proceeds from the generation of hydro-electricity. The village has two distinct centres: the pedestrianised Place Centre Village which sits below the car-free Place de la Fare, which is where most holiday accommodation is located and so its restaurants and bars are the focus of evening activity. The resort is positioned at 1250m, but the skiing area extends dramatically beyond this, covering 1100-3330m, with 250km of piste served by 81 lifts. Skiing through nearby Alpe d'Huez is key for accessing the entire domain, and the nearest airport is Grenoble, just an hour's drive from Vaujany. Read more...

There are two ways to ski out of the resort: firstly, you can take the gondola up to the local runs; secondly, you can take the 160 person cable car straight up to the Alpe d'Huez lift system. As is true of the whole of Alpe d'Huez, Vaujany offers a great skiing proposition for beginners, with great nursery slopes and greens for progression. Many blues and greens can be found in the area closest to Vaujany, making it a convenient place to learn how to ski. For more experienced skiers, there's a great variety of reds as well as plenty of blacks (including a 16km black run!) and off-piste for the most adventurous. Snowboarders largely dominate the snowpark which has a half-pipe, and many boarders can also be found taking full advantage of the off-piste opportunities. If cross country skiing is your thing, you have an extensive 50km of trails to explore.
