Ski holidays in Vaujany

Vaujany is a fantastic resort for ski holidays where you want to relax after a hard day on the slopes. Each morning, the giant cable car transports you up to the Alpe d’Huez ski area to a great selection of on and off piste skiing. Beginners will flourish here as there is a good amount of southern facing easier and nursery slopes to hone their skills but intermediates may want to head further afield to push themselves. Boarders and freestylers will love the terrain parks and there is some pretty good skiing above the village of Vaujany itself including the famous Champagne run.

With links to some fantastic skiing and accommodation in a small and relaxing village, Vaujany is a great destination for family ski holidays. With plenty to test your skills on the slopes and a particularly good resort for beginner and intermediate boarders and freestylers due to the snow park, there’s something for everyone to enjoy in Vaujany.

Après ski

Vaujany is not a party all night kind of resort. However, there are a couple of bars and restaurants scattered across the village which you can easily reach via the covered escalator that runs through Vaujany.

Eating out

Above Vaujany in the mountains, there’s plenty of choice for somewhere to eat, you can sit on the terrace, have a drink in the sun and watch others skiing down the slopes. In the village itself, there is a lovely hotel open to non-residents offering a five course meal of traditional cuisine and wines. At the top of the village there is a great family restaurant that serves delicious pizzas and fondue.

Non-ski activities

What Vaujany lacks in night clubs it makes up for in evening activities. At the bottom of the village there is a leisure centre with a giant swimming pool with flumes which the kids will love, indoor ice skating and a climbing wall. The village also has an ice hockey stadium and a bowling alley so there’s plenty for families and groups to do in the evenings.

Summer season

This charming village is a beautiful destination for the summer. If you have a love of cycling, Vaujany and the Alpe d’Huez area is well known as being the ‘cycling mecca’ of the Alps. There’s also plenty of beautiful mountain scenery to discover on foot too along the many networks of walking paths through the village and up into the peaks. is a trading name of The Big Domain Limited | The Big Domain Limited is registered in England and Wales. | Registered Office: Travel Chapter House Gammaton Road Bideford EX39 4DF | Company No. 04707652 | VAT reg: 942636610
