Oz - follow the yellow brick road

Well, no, actually, but if you follow the D526 road through the snowy mountains of the Isère department of eastern France you will find the tiny ski village of Oz, almost as magical as the legendary land from the musical. Set amidst spectacular scenery, the beautiful village of Oz is superb for skiers and snowboarders in winter, and great for ambitious cyclists in summer. It lies close to the Alpe d'Huez climb famed for its frequent role in sorting the men from the boys in the gruelling Tour de France road race.

Family friendly village

This tiny village resort is ideal for those who prefer a peaceful base yet still want access to fabulous and varied skiing or snowboarding. The village has its own brand of aprés ski, though, with a good smattering of lively bars and restaurants, and there are well stocked shops for all the basic necessities as well as for all your skiing and boarding requirements. The atmosphere is family friendly, and the resort caters for all ages and abilities on the pistes.

Huge ski areas

Oz may be a tiny village resort, but it has full access to some of the best ski areas in the region. Forming part of the Grand Rousses ski area, Oz offers access to 273 pistes, many of which are high altitude and thus have excellent snow cover all winter. Seasoned skiers can take one of two bubble lifts to the pistes at over 2,000 metres altitude, while beginners and youngsters can take advantage of the ski school, crèche and nursery slopes with the new and wonderfully easy to use "magic carpet" lift. Some of the skiable slopes run all the way back to the village, so you don't have to hang up your skis until the day is really and truly over.

Tour de France

As well as being popular with skiers, the region is notable for its demanding role in the Tour de France. Keen cyclists can come to the area to try to emulate their heroes, or simply to gaze in awe at the nearby gruelling Alpe d'Huez climb which can make all the difference to the winners and losers in the great annual race.

Other activities on offer

Besides snow sports and cycling, the mountains near Oz offer walking, pony trekking, fishing and climbing.
