Allemond is far from the crowds, yet close enough to the Alpe d’Huez Grand Domaine ski resort. It is a small charming village, ideal for your winter holiday.
Eau d’Olle Valley is dotted with cross-country skiing trails and showshoeing itineraries, as early as the first snowfall.
For alpine skiing, you need to go to the nearby resorts of Villard-Reculas, Oz-en-Oisans or Vaujany.

From Allemond, the Plaine de l’Oisans Nordic ski area is accessible for all with marked loops for ski skating and sections through the forest, without any steep descents or climbs: Boucle du Camping, Boucle du Raffour, left-hand banks of Verney Lake (make sure you find out about the snow conditions).
Use the free shuttle bus Allemond > Oz-en-Oisans to reach Oz cross-country ski area with 2 great itineraries: Circuit des Lacs (20 km) and Boucle de Poutran (10 km).
Allemond cross-country skiing centre is open every day from the Christmas holidays until mid-March. From there, you can hire all the equipment you need: full skating or nordic gear (skis, poles, boots).
From Allemond, depending on the snow cover, you can walk along the rockfill dam, along the shores of Verney Lake, or take the “Itinéraire de l’Ecureuil” at Pont Rouge.
But that’s not all… Head up to the “itinéraire du plateau des lacs” at an altitude of 2000 m, an absolute must for snowshoeing. This wild plateau can be accessed from Vaujany or Oz-en-Oisans, and is far from the skilifts, with only the footprints and cross-country skiing marks as a reminder you are not alone. This marked and safe trail is suitable for families, and from the snowy peaks, you’ll have an exceptional view. From Alpe d’Huez, you can also reach the Gorges of Sarenne, la Bergerie or le Rif Nel.
You can also hire showshoes and poles at the cross-country skiing centre!
