We are a family of 4 and found this beautiful ski resort 12 years ago when we booked accommodation in Alpe d'Huez. Our two kids, 4 & 8yrs at the time took the open chairlift from Alpe d'huez across to Auris without a problem, where we enjoyed amazing skiing with no long Q's. We fell in love with the area and before we flew back home, bought an old farm house in a small village 5km from the resort _ La Ville. We have explored this beautiful region in both winter (for amazing family skiing) & during the Summer holidays for mountain biking, mountaineering, cycling and more recently - paragliding. We have been there for stages of the Tour de France which passes by Le Freney z(12 km down from Auris station) on route to the famous "21 turns" climb to Alpe d'Huez. We took the chair lift from Auris over to Alpe d'huez to be there to meet the cyclists as they crossed the finish line. Truly unforgettable. The local people are very friendly and you will get good value for money in the local shops if compared with many other French, Austrian, or Italian Ski resorts. ... Full Review

To be completely honest, we own a place here, so I am a little non-plussed that it gets 3/5. It is not flash in the way Meribel or Les Arcs is, that said, if you want to family ski, challenge yourself in the knowledge that the slopes are not rammed and there is plenty of skill challenge for every level. The fact that it links to Alpes d'Huez is a massive bonus that will have you hard pushed to complete in a week. Yes, it is not the most pretty of villages, and doesn't have a load of pubs and clubs but that is not its charm or purpose.... Full Review

The station is a satellite station linked to the Alpes d'Huez network and in time (2024 - a long time away I know) will be linked to les Deux Alpes. The skiing is split between tree fringed return blues and reds back to Auris and motorway above tree line blues with a good few punchy Reds that would be Blacks in other resorts. There is also good off piste skiing whith a couple of hairy chute runs and specifically challenging mogul blacks. In the resort it's self it's a little charmless with much of the early 80's block appartment buildings still in evidence. For those of you who drive, there is masses of free parking and regardless of where you park you can ski down to the lift or its a short walk (less than 50 m). The reseort has two mini markets with good stocks of all you need and at good (for the alps) prices. There are a few pubs and restaurants with more opening up all the time. Similarly there has been almost 20mio spent on new accomodation, updated ski lifts and improved infrastructure generally. It's not 'happening' in any sense if you want cheesy euro pop and dancing on tables, neither is it terribly sophisticated. What it is however is polite, gentile, relaxed skiing, evidenced best during the feb half term week when you can queue for a lift for no more than 3 minutes to get a seat. Families, you won't get better. Lads or groups on the lash, look elsewhere as it won't suit you at all. One final word however, the return blues are not easy skiing for complete newbies....
