Although Auris en Oisans is connected by pistes to Alpe d’Huez, it is accessed by a completely separate road which comes up from Bourg d’Oisans, the village on the valley floor and the transport hub for the area. Ben’s Bus does not offer direct Auris en Oisans Airport ski transfers but we have a direct shuttle bus to Bourg d’Oisans. From there you will need to make your own transport arrangements for the short journey up to Auris en Oisans. You would therefore need to select a transfer to Bourg d’Oisans on our online booking form.

AURIS EN OISANS SKI RESORT
Auris en Oisans is a small, friendly, family orientated resort in the department of Isere in the Southern French Alps. It sits at an altitude of 1600m and faces south, enjoying plenty of sunshine and spectacular views of the Meije and the rest of the Ecrins National Park. It is linked to Alpe d’Huez by ski lifts and forms part of the Grand Domaine ski area, offering 250km of varied piste. Due to its small size, most accommodations are very close to the piste. The resort makes a special effort for families, putting on plenty of events to keep the kids occupied when they are not skiing. It also benefits from much more competitive rates than its bigger brother, Alpe d’Huez. Although the amount of bars and restaurants is less, you are still able to enjoy the extensive ski area if you buy the Domaine ski pass.
