Charming, great piste access, good off piste (requires effort)
Some of the lower pistes are late (in the season) to open and early to close

Full review

Vaujany is a village transformed into a Station by substantial investment over the last 20 years. For most intermediates it is a lovely peaceful 'backdoor' into the extensive and varied terrain of Alpe d'Huez; l'Alpe is a fairly ugly and boisterous village, whereas Vaujany is quieter and much prettier. For experts, lifts to altitude give access to some fabulous, steep off piste. For families with young children, the attractions of the Vaujany ski area itself will probably suffice, along with the highly rated creche and ESF ski school. Extensive use of escalators and lifts allow easy movement around the steep, sunny South facing village, and the facilities belie its size - a 25m pool with slides and a large ice rink aren't usually found in a commune with 300 permanent inhabitants. There are a few nice restaurants and more lively bars, but this is a place where the apres is less important than the ski.
