Avoriaz Ski Resort
Avoriaz is the ideal high-altitude base from which to explore the vast 600km network of slopes that form the cross-border Portes du Soleil ski area.
Located at 1800m, Avoriaz is by far the most snowsure of the ski areas within the Portes du Soleil – making this the best bet for an early season visit. The local slopes are varied and although some pistes can get crowded at times, the lift system has been significantly improved in recent years, reducing your time spent in queues. Keen skiers should make sure they explore the full Portes du Soleil ski area and all 600km of slopes, via Champéry in Switzerland or Châtel in France.
The village’s tall apartment blocks are instantly recognisable, sitting high on a plateau above the village of Morzine below. It is traffic free as all visitors must park in car parks on the outskirts of town – book a space underground to save from digging yourself out after a snowstorm – so the resort makes for a great location for a family ski holiday. Add to this the quick transfer time from Geneva and the fact the entire resort is ski-in-ski-out and Avoriaz is as convenient as it gets.
Our Ski Club Instructor-led Guiding Service is back for another season and sessions with the excellent Evolution 2 ski school can be booked between 22nd December and 13th April.
