The quaint French mountain village of Vaujany has a wonderful atmosphere, and is located in the vast ski area of the Alpe d’Huez Grand Domaine. There are several lifts that have direct access to the resort, and within just 8 minutes you can reach an altitude of 2800m. This is the largest cable car system in the world, with a carrying capacity of up to 160 people. This cable car takes you all the way back down to Vaujany, as it is not possible to ski down.
Vaujany is in part of the Alpe d’Huez Grand Domaine ski area. All together this area has over 250km of ski slopes. It has a great mix of green, blue, red and black slopes so it is perfect for skier/snowboarders of all levels. The area has a glacier, and the highest point is at 3330m. This means that has a high chance of snow through the whole winter season. The Alpe d’Huez area also includes the resorts Oz, Auris-en-Oisans and Alpe d’Huez.
Whilst this village normally only has a population of around 200 inhabitants, you will find a few lively bars, a nightclub, a pizzeria and a supermarket. The bars and the nightclub provide a surprisingly lively après-ski environment.
