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.
Grenoble airport is about 110km from Auris en Oisans. For more information about Auris en Oisans, please visit the local tourist office website http://www.auris-en-oisans.fr/en/
