Winter & summer Oz (Oz en Oisans) is traffic free. A great environment for families and friends to enjoy a break in the Alps as part of the Grand Domaine ski area (http://www.alpedhuez-granddomaine-ski.com/). The holiday village atmosphere is enhanced by the restaurants and shops lining the main village pedestrian street, which is regularly pisted. In winter Oz is ideal for learners, mixed ability groups, families and experts, skiers or boarders. The village has 3 easy lifts and green slopes at the front de neige, and 2 hi-speed telecabins to whisk the more experienced skiers high into the 10,000 hectares of exciting skiing, up to 3300m on the Sarenne glacier. Skiing home is by blues and reds with Roche Noire, an exciting black run as an alternative for experienced skiers and boarders. Everything in Oz is conveniently nearby, no buses or cars required and many residences are ski in and out. Oz has some lovely traditional restaurants, pizzerias and bars plus a night-club (Grotte du Yeti) for the younger generation. The local supermarket and ski shops are well stocked and friendly. There is a public swimming pool, ice skating and floodlit tobogganing and skiing on the village slopes. In Summer (July and August) Oz gives you easy access to tennis, volleyball, walking, mountain biking, fishing, horse riding and many more outdoor pursuits. The trails are well sign-posted and graded for all capabilities. The lifts are open so walkers and bikers can quickly access the more remote mountain areas. Oz is great for access to Alpe d'Huez to see the Tour de France and hosts many Mountain Bike events such as the Megavalanche and Avalanche Cups.

Visitor Reviews of Oz en Oisans


Craig from United Kingdom writes:

We have just spent the week between Christmas and New Year skiing in Oz. It was brilliant. The snow was fantastic, and the weather mostly sunny. The Poutran allowed access to a wide range of runs so every ability was catered for. We stayed in Apartment Sarenne, hosted by Richard and Janet Hughes, and were delighted with the cosy comfort and superb location so close to the Poutran we could ski back to the front door. There is a small supermarket and variety of restaurants in the village, so we were kept well watered and fed. We hired our ski equipment from 2G sports, and the service we received from Antoine and his team was excellent. We would highly recommend this location for a brilliant family holiday.
