10 Reasons To Visit Oz en Oisans Ski Resort

  1. Direct access to 248km of piste
  2. Most of the accommodation is ski in, ski out
  3. Quiet village away from the drunken revellry of large resorts
  4. Good English speaking ESF ski school in the village
  5. Pedestrianised village centre you can ski through
  6. Family friendly resort with nothing far from the slopes
  7. Fir tree lined runs perfect for low visability days
  8. Pretty village purpose made in 1989
  9. Despite being at 1,350m the local slopes hold their snow well
  10. Small village with a few shops and a couple of restaurants

What's Oz en Oisans like?

The locals simply call it 'Oz', a low key, laid back resort away from the crowds and noise of Alpe d'Huez itself. The village is small with just a handful of shops to buy postcards, some wine, and cheese - what more do you really need? There's a couple of restaurants and a pizza truck there last year. The resort was purpose built in 1989, with low rise buildings attractively made with wood and stone to a backdrop of fir trees. The village centre is pedestrianized and therefore child friendly. You can ski through the village to the lifts in the mornings that will whisk you straight up to the main ski area - another major draw to Oz (248km of pistes).

Skiing in Oz

The local slopes are great for learning and mellow sun drenched, tree lined runs are perfect for getting your ski legs as well as a little powder hunting through the trees. But the major draw when it comes to skiing is the links to the wider Alpe d'Huez ski area. A massive 248km of largely intermediate terrain with more red runs to explore than you could possibly want. Test your abilities on challenging blacks such as the Tunnel or the 16km Sarenne run down from Pic Blanc up at a lofty 3,300m.

Apres Ski

Oz en Oisans is by no means a buzzing apres resort. The mellow runs are echoed in the mellow apres scene. Just a handful of places to eat, it's more about relaxing after your days' skiing. Or you could always just carry on with a spot of night skiing. The resort also provides various different sledding apparatus free of charge to test out on the local slopes.
