France, Portes du Soleil Ski Area



Superb skiing in this traffic-free resort in the huge Portes du Soleil region

Sitting at the heart of Portes du Soleil ski area (and marking its highest resort and ski station), Avoriaz has a 1960s post-modernist ‘pop art’ feel about it. Instantly identified by its tall apartment blocks scattered around winding roads on the cliff-top plateau, with a stunning vista over the valley and Morzine below. Thanks to its high position, Avoriaz celebrates a great snow record.

Avoriaz is a pedestrian town: All cars, buses, taxis and vehicles stop off at the entrée station on the outskirts of town, and everywhere from there is reached by foot, horse drawn carriage, or snowcat. This makes it an ideal location for families, and you can very literally ski in and out of your hotel!

A great resort for beginners, intermediates, skiers and snowboarders alike, there is a little something for everyone in Avoriaz. While the Portes du Soleil stretches over 650km in every direction, stretching over the border into Switzerland, there is still plenty to do off the piste as well with delicious restaurants in abundance, alongside bars and amenities in the centre of Avoriaz. There is potential to ski over to Switzerland for a day. There are also lots of family-friendly activities like ice skating, as well as more adventurous activities like parapenting for those seeking an adrenaline kick!
