Valley run available Almost all of the villages of the ski resort are accessible with multiple valley runs. You can even choose between easy, intermediate and more difficult runs. The only exception is the valley run to Vaujany, where there is only one black run to the village - La Fare. For this reason, it is recommended that beginners take one of the gondola lifts from L'Alpette or Villette to the village.

La Sarenne (Pic Blanc - Auris En Oisans) · Length 16 km · Elevation difference 1730 m The "La Sareene" black run leads from the peak of Pic Blanc through the Gorges de Sarenne down to the valley. Steep slopes and moguls alternate with gently sloping ski paths and offer unique views of the wonderful mountain landscape.
Pic Blanc - Enversin d'Oz · Length 17 km · Elevation difference 2205 m
Most difficult run
Le Tunnel · Length 3 km · Elevation difference 800 m Le Tunnel leads over the slopes on the front side of Pic Blanc, beneath the Pic Blanc gondola to the valley station of the Lac Blanc chair lift. The run and its branch offs are accessible via a 200 metre long tunnel. This leads from the glacier directly through the mountain ridge. It provides access to an expansive area with particularly steep, bumpy and unprepared runs.
Bartavelles The Baravelles red run leads from Dôme Des Petites Rousses to L'Alpette. The snow conditions are often very good here. The scenery along this run is amazing: it leads past an imposing rock wall and offers a great view of the neighbouring valleys.
Suggested routes through ski resort
Under the motto: "Mon premier 8000 – à Chacun son Everest!" (My first 8000 m mountain - Everyone's Everest!), the ski resort recommends the combination of four particularly long runs that lead through the entire ski resort. Each run overcomes 2000 altitude metres. Those who accomplish this will have skied more than 8000 m. You can inform yourself about the route at the ticket counter. When the tour is completed successfully, you will receive a certificate. All four runs begin at Pic Blanc. One is the Sarenne. The other three begin with the Le Tunnel run. They lead over the middle station of the Grandes Rousses gondola to Villette, Vaujany and Oz en Oisans.This tour is however not recommended for beginners: a majority of the runs are marked as black and are really only for good skiers.
