WE LIKE

  • Good position on the main Portes du Soleil circuit, giving access to very extensive, quite varied runs
  • Accommodation next to the slopes & ski lifts plus loads of places to go in Morzine for food just down the valley.
  • Great children's facilities in a car-free resort. It may not look the prettiest - but there's some great skiing and boarding available for families with some wide pistes.

WE DON'T LIKE

  • Non-traditional architecture, which some find ugly and not at all charming. You are quite cramped in here!
  • Little to do off the slopes suprisingly - a few additional activities or you can get a bus to Morzine.
  • Can get very crowded at weekends as locals flock to the pistes and terrain parks - the 'home' of French boarding for some.

On the slopes

With  250+ slopes there are runs here for all levels. The Avoriaz ski resort is a destination for all types of skiers and boarders. As the first resort in Europe to really embrace snowboarding, it offers  access to 10 terrain parks as well as good off-piste conditions. Being part of the Portes du Soleil ski area means 12 resorts and over 650km of pistes at all levels are accessible. You can also check out our dedicated Avoriaz website for details on summer or winter activities. Each winter Avoriaz receives on average 8m of powder but as many of its slopes are below 200m the quality of the snow can be variable. Avoriaz can also get rather crowded when nearby low altitude resorts lack snow.

Ski area

If you ski Avoriaz you are also in the ski region of Portes du Soleil.

Off the slopes

A purpose built ski resort, you can ski to the door at the end of a long day. With over 30 restaurants, loads of bars and two nightclubs it caters for all visitors and thanks to being car free, it encourages families to enjoy everything on offer. The only form of transport available is horse drawn sleighs,sleds and snowcats. Accommodation is relatively cheap compared to the likes of Val d'Isere, with most accommodation being self catering apartments. The choice of hotels here can be a little narrow but if this is your bag you can always consider staying in Morzine, a short taxi ride away.Off-piste activities include bowling, an ice rink, hang gliding and of course plenty of walks. A new feature worth checking out is Aquariaz, a new indoor water park!
