What's it like at Oz en Oisans resort?

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.

A quick warning about the lift passes if you're planning to use them for Deux Alpes (2 days included in the 6 day passes).

We've bought ours online and had them delivered. You're told to collect a voucher/ticket from one of the lift offices before visiting Deux Alpes. I did so and was told (at 2 separate lift offices in Oz en Oisans and Alpe d'Huez) that this wasn't necessary, that the lift pass would work (and if not that the confirmation of our payment was enough).

We visited Deux Alpes in 2018 and 2019 from Oz and: a) the lift passes don't work there, you have to pick up a Deux Alpes pass, b) they wanted a voucher!

This entailed a long wait at the lift office at Les Deux Alpes while they called Oz to confirm our eligibility, even after we showed the online confirmation of purchase. They eventually supplied us with passes, somewhat begrudgingly and with a mild telling off for not having the correct documents.

It might be easier if you buy the passes directly from the station in Oz, but in either case, I would recommend you bring the receipt and some identification with you if using them in Deux Alpes.
