We are excited to announce, that on the 8th September 2020, confirmation was published, that the ski areas of Les Deux Alpes and Alpe d’Huez would be linked up to create a huge new ski area in the French Alps.
Yes, the Oisans region will now see a huge new high-altitude ski domain emerge under a thunderclap of excitement in the region. Once connected the new ski area will offer a staggering 475km of slopes, which includes multiple glaciers, peaks of 3300m and 3600m and some of the longest ski seasons in the Alps, from the end of November to the end of April.
The project to link the areas will now be included in the next Territorial Coherence Scheme (SCoT) of Oisans, as confirmed by the politicians concerned.
Guy Verney, elected president of the community of The Communes on July 16, and also the new mayor of Bourg d’Oisans, has announced his “strong desire to completely take over” the regional planning for the next 15 years. Along with Jean-Yves Noyrey, they have stated that the project to link the areas of Les Deux Alpes and Alpe d’Huez will be going ahead.
Work now has to be completed to ensure it addresses all aspects including, “the previous project did not provide for summer operation”. Mr Verney confirms that he is “certain that this link will be an all-year-round operation”.
With the 310km Les Sybelles ski domain, wishing to connect a cable car from the resort of St Sorlin d’Arves, into the Vaujany Valley once the Alpe d’Huez – Les Deux Alpes ski area is formed, this will create the worlds largest linked ski domain with more than 800 kilometres of slopes. There is much more to come out of this, the most exciting area in the Alps, where prices are expected to see sharp rises making it a perfect investment hotspot right now.
