Oz en Oisans Resort & Transfer Guide

In French Alps, at an altitude of 1350m, you can discover a picturesque "satellite village" of the Alpine D'Huez, this is Oz en Oisans.

The question arises: why is it worth to spend your ski holiday here? The answer is simple. Because Oz en Oisans is exactly what skiers need during the holidays, namely cosy wooden huts, a convenient location in the absence of cars. Ideal conditions, first of all, for families who without much worry want to leave their kids to walk and also find the best place for beginners.

Of the 41 ski runs that belong to the ski area of Oz-en-Oisans, more than a half are light descents, smooth enough to make the first bends.

Ski Resort Location

Ski resort Oz-en-Oisans is located at an altitude of 1350m above sea level, in the heart of the largest ski area of Alpe d'Huez, the sun-opening Grandes Rousses massif. The area of Alpe D'Huez with its impressive Pic Blanc, bordering the largest national park of France - Ecrins, aroused interest among fans of mountain tourism in the 19th century.

Today, Alpe D'Huez is among the best ski resorts in terms of service and quality of the ski slopes. And thanks to its proximity to Grenoble, it is also one of the most visited Alpine resorts.

The tourist centre Oz-en-Oisans, unlike the neighbouring ski stations, began to be built up relatively recently (1989). However, thoughtful modern buildings don’t spoil the warm and homely atmosphere of the alpine village. The buildings of modern hotels and residences are made in the traditional Alpine chalet style using wood and mountain slate. There are no roads where - the main parking is located on the edge of the town, and the streets are completely at the disposal of skiers.

The morning starts here with a nice and so familiar picture for the Alpine resort - a group of people at the doors of their hotels fasten their skis or snowboards and walk along the unpopulated streets towards the ski lifts.

The area of skiing can be divided into five main sectors: Oz, Vaujany, Alpe D'Huez, Auris and Villard-Reculas. Each of them is interesting in its own way.

Ski Resort Essentials

From Oz-en-Oisans, two ski areas are accessible: Oz/Vaujany and Alpe D'Huez grand Domaine Ski. Two fully linked and integrated areas with opportunities to learn, discover or re-discover the joys of skiing for skiers and snowboarders of all ages and levels.

  • 75km of ski runs (41 pistes)
  • 12 Green pistes
  • 14 Blue pistes
  • 12 Red pistes
  • 3 Black pistes
  • 22 ski lifts
  • Resort Ski area from 1125m to 2800m

Alpe D’Huez includes:

  • 42 Green pistes
  • 37 Blue pistes
  • 39 Red pistes
  • 17 Black pistes
  • 80 ski lifts
  • Maximum Altitude – 3300m (Pic Blanc)

This is one of the best resorts for beginners and children, and care of the trails here is above all praise. Wide, sunny and fenced off from the main trails the educational slopes pass mainly in the area of the village of Alpe D'Huez. More prepared skiers have the sense to start with the slopes Signal (2176m), where the red and black tracks are concentrated.

At the weekend, the resort is filled to 100%, and on the main slopes is quite crowded.

All trails here are open for wind and sun, there is practically no forest, but with snow cover problems, numerous snow cannons help to cope.

Family Friendly/Kids

There is no doubt that a true discovery for athletes inside the Oz-en-Oisans area is night skiing, which is held every season and invites both beginners and professionals to make a ski trip under the starry sky and moonlight. The magnificent nature and picturesque mountain landscape of the Rhône-Alpes region can also be enjoyed without skis during a snowshoe walk.

For a good apres-ski time Oz-en-Oisans resort offers 8 restaurants in the city and 4 on the slopes. For accommodation guests resort has several hotels and residences. These are inexpensive and perfectly fits for family-friendly rest.

The lack of entertainment in the village pays off proximity to the central resort of the region - Alpe D'Huez.
