Vaujany - Picturesque mountain resort
Allemont and Lac du Verney - Hotel Allemont
Ideal location for The Mega Avalanche

Town:

Allemont – The town is located in the valley so an ideal location from which to start a number of road cycling routes. It is also the finishing line for the mega avalanche, the longest downhill track and race in the world. The town has a friendly family feel with fantastic facilities for a family holiday. It is located right on a huge reservoir, ideal for water sports, has a large open air swimming pool and a lovely park area where they host an annual jazz festival.

Vaujany – Is a mountain village connected to the Alpe d’Huez lift system by a huge cable car. This desirable sunny commune has state of the art facilities such as a brand new ice rink and bowling centre, fitness and swimming pool as well as elevators and escalators dotted all over the resort to help movement around this hillside village.

Biking:

Allemont – Thanks to its valley location and being right at the start of the climbs to the Col du Glandon and the Croix de Fer, as well as being close to the Alpe d’Huez climb, Allemont is unsurprisingly very popular with road cyclists.

However this town is also popular for mountain bikers and is the location for the finish line of the 30km Mega Avalanche downhill marathon track that starts 2500m above at the Pic Blanc in Alpe d’Huez. A bike uplift service is included in the price of an Alpe d’Huez lift ticket and is available between the town and the bottom of the ski lifts in Oz village.

Vaujany – The village has direct access to the Alpe d’Huez lift system via the Dome Express cable car. From its mid station you can access world class cross-country trails around a number of picturesque lakes such as Lac Carrelet and Lac Besson. Take the second cable car and you have direct access to the qualification course of the Mega Avalanche and then access to the rest of the Alpe d’Huez lift system.

For road cyclists, the village is located on the climb to the Col du Sabot and has easy access to the start of the Col du Glandon, the Croix de Fer and the Alpe d’Huez.

Events:

La Vaujany - the prelude to the Marmotte, but almost as challenging!  This course includes the Col d'Ornon and Col de Sarenne. and takes place in late June.

Triathlon - Towards the end of July, Alpe d’Huez hosts a three day triathlon event, using the Lac du Verney between Allemont and Vaujany for the swimming stage, the classic climb to Alpe d’Huez for part of the cycling route, and the alpine meadows at the top of Alpe d’Huez for the running stage. Spanning three days, the event includes a juniors’ competition, a Long Distance Triathlon (2.2km swim, 115km ride and 22km run) and a Short Distance Triathlon (1.2 km swim, 30km ride and 7km run).

Mega Avalanche – The Alpe d’Huez edition of the Mega Avalanche tour is the largest and most popular event on the calendar. Open to both professionals and amateurs, the event attracts thousands of riders keen to race against the best in the world. The event takes place over three days, with a day of practice, a day of qualifying and finally the race day. Competitors start at the Pic Blanc at 3300m, beginning the race on the glacier before descending over 30km of grueling trail to Allemont at 720m.

Tour de France 2015 - This summer Allemont will be within a days ride of the final 3 mountain stages of the 2015 Tour de France, on the Col du Glandon,  La Croix du Fer and thr Alpe d'Huez.

La Marmotte - This annual amateur cyclosportive at the beginning of July attracts up to 8,000 competitors. The 175km route starts in Bourg d’Oisans, goes over the Col du Glandon, Col du Telegraphe and Col du Galibier, and finishes in Alpe d’Huez. The Marmotte includes over 5,180m of climbing.

La Marmotte 2015 revised route – Due to a forced closure to the tunnel du Chambon, between the Col du Lautatet and Le Bourg d’Oisans, the route for La Marmotte  2015  has been changed. It will still start from Bourg and head over to the Maurienne valley via the Col to Glandon, but will now head up the  Lacets de Montvernier  before returning to the Bourg valley via the Col du Mollard and the Col de La Croix de Fer, before finally climbing the Alpe d’Huez.
