ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
During this trip, you’ll spend five full days skiing with local instructors to help improve your on piste skills. You’ll be split into groups of 7/8, based on your ski profile. This trip is aimed at Advanced Intermediate (Silver) and Advanced (Purple) on piste skiers. If you are unsure of your ski level, please see our Ski Profile Page. At the end of the week, you will receive an updated grading from your Instructor or Ski Club Rep.
You will spend your 7 nights at the 3* Hotel Les Cimes du Soleil which is located just a 5 minute walk from resort and 2 minute walk from the ski lifts. You’ll be staying in single occupancy rooms on a half board basis. After a day on the slopes you can relax on the sun terrace or in the hotel bar where you can discuss the day’s slope-filled antics.

Large apartment blocks and hotels dominate the village but whilst their size stands out, they are mostly wood-clad and well designed, so it certainly is not an eyesore like other purpose-built resorts. The stunning setting definitely helps, as do the snow covered paths of the traffic-free town.
Off the slopes there is lots to do, including dog-sledding and horse-drawn sleigh rides, whilst Aquariaz – a huge tropical themed indoor pool complex – is a particular hit with families. 2018 saw the opening of the ever popular La Folie Douce in Avoriaz, adding to the party-appeal of this lively resort. This added to the après offering, particular during happy hour – which includes the popular Chalet d’Avoriaz. Snowboxx Festival once again returns to Avoriaz in 2020, bringing some of world’s top artists to town for a week of partying in the spring sunshine.
