Geography[edit]

Auris-en-Oisans Ski station in Summer

Auris is an alpine commune some 30 km south-east of Grenoble and 5 km west of Mont-de-Lans. Access to the commune is by the D211A road from La Garde in the west which passes through the commune by a tortuous route and continues east to Le Freney-d'Oisans. The D211E branches off the D211A in the commune to go to La Grand Combe. Apart from the village (which is solely the town hall) there is the hamlet of Les Cours to the north and Le Cert and Les Chatains to the south. The commune is rugged with alpine terrain and a large forest to the west of the village (La Forêt).[4]

The Romanche river forms the southern border of the commune as it flows west to the Barrage du Clapier - an artificial lake on the southern border of the commune - then continues west then north to eventually join the Drac at Jarrie. The Venéon river flows from the south through the south-western extension of the commune to join the Romanche there.[4]
