Where is Vaujany?
In the Isere Valley, Romanche, high in the French Alps. The area is also known as the Oisans. Vaujany is just across the valley from Alpe d’Huez and 90 minute transfer from Grenoble

Is the Resort Snow-sure?
Yes it is. The resort benefits from the Pic Blanc glacier at 3300m and is also open during the summer! The Ski Club of Great Britain’s Historical Snow Report shows Vaujany having an average minimum of 82cm and maximum of 300cm throughout the whole season (mid-December to late-April).

What else is there to do (other than ski and board)?
Vaujany has stunning forest Raquettes walks (aka snow shoeing). There is also paragliding, husky dog sledging in Alpe d’Huez, ski touring and walking, bowling, ice skating not to mention relaxing in the Leisure centres and spa facilities. Please see our 'Other Activities' page
Do you cater for celiac or other special diets?
Yes we do. Each of our chalets has it’s own professional chef who will specifically create each menu to your tastes, desires and dietary requirements. Advanced notice required!

Where is the closest airport?
Grenoble is the closest airport to the Southern side of the French Alps. It is about 90 minutes transfer by coach and even quicker by car.

How do I get to Vaujany?
Follow the signs for Lyon and then Grenoble…Take the A480 from Grenoble and exit the road at junction 8 ‘Vizille – stations de l’Oisans’’ then take the main road RN91 to Bourg d’Oisans. At Rochetaille take the left onto the D527 towards Allemont and Vaujany. We will give more detailed travel directions in your holiday pack.

What are your changeover days?
Ski Peak changeover days in our catered chalets are on Saturday whereas our self catered properties are Sunday. 

Do I need to bring child seats for airport transfers?
You are welcome to bring your own child seat(s). However, for your convenience we have a selection of car seats for babies and toddlers. (Note that France does not have the same child seat laws as the UK). So simply inform us at the time you make your booking and we will have the right seat fitted in your vehicle when we collect you from the airport.

How do I pay, and when?
We accept debit/credit cards, cheques or direct bank transfers. Your booking is secured by a £150 - £200 per person deposit on low season dates and can be higher at peak season dates due to flight costs. Your holiday balance is payable 8 weeks prior to departure.

I am a Ski Club of Great Britain member, do I receive any discount?
Yes we oblige the members with a 5% reduction on their Half Board accommodation rate.  We ask to be informed of membership and their specific number when making the booking and not at a later date. 

Should I get ski insurance?
Yes Definitely. We strongly recommend to all our guests that they have comprehensive winter sports travel insurance. This is also a requirement of our booking terms and conditions. The cover given on most credit cards is usually not good enough. In addition to this cover we recommend you add the ‘Carre Neige’ insurance on to your Vaujany ski pass, it’s about £2 per day and ensures your evacuation off the mountain. In the event of an accident, you are transported from the slopes to the hospital and all charges are taken care of without additional cost or bureaucracy.
