Ski area Alpe d'Huez Grand Domaine Ski

With the "Grand Domaine Ski" lift pass, you will have access to the ski area of Alpe d'Huez, most of which faces south-southwest, allowing for plenty of sunshine. When heading out from Vaujany, you can reach the pistes in just a few minutes thanks to the modern Vaujany-Alpette and Vaujany-Villette gondolas. The ski area (1,125 - 3,330 m), with its 250 km of piste and 67 lifts, counts as especially snow-sure: 80% of the pistes lie above 1,800 m altitude!

The most spectacular piste, the "La Sarenne", starts up on the Sarenne Glacier and runs along the front side of the Pic Blanc and down into the valley. With a length of 16 km, it is one of the longest pistes in Europe! The 3 km long, black, steep run "Le Tunnel" is only suitable for expert skiers, taking riders from the Pic Blanc through a tunnel and out onto a mogul piste. The red pistes up on the "Dôme des Petits Rousses" are not as tricky, but are still rarther demanding. The "Bartavelles" run in particular provides not only usually good snow conditions, but also breathtaking views of the surrounding landscapes and neighbouring valleys, along with impressive rock faces. Beginners will find the perfect practice slopes at the resort edge of Alpe d'Huez and Vaujany. Snowboarders are also well tended to here: The fun park at the Le Lac Blanc chair lift is only for real experts. The second fun park, on the other hand, is much more beginner-friendly. In Vaujany, a beginner snow park can also be found.

For the 2016/2017, the "Signal" was transformed into a combination lift composed of 10-person gondolas and 8-person chair lifts, thus transporting up to 3,370 winter sports fans per hour.

With your lift pass, you also have the chance to use both the pool and the ice skating rink in Vaujany one time each. From 21/12/2019 - 13/03/2020 and from 21/03/2020 - 10/04/2020, when booking a 6-day lift pass or more, you will also have access to the ski areas of the Grande Galaxie: ski for two days in the Les 2 Alpes ski area (225 km) and one day each in Serre Chevalier (250 km), Puy St. Vincent (75 km) and in the ski areas around Sestrière and Montgenèvre of the Via Lattea (Italy, 400 km). To visit both ski areas of the Via Lattea, please be sure to pick up a receipt from the lift office when presenting your lift pass. In order to make use if th last two ski areas, please present your lift pass at the lift office and pick up a receipt.
