  • Over 600 kilometres of skiable terrain across the Portes du Soleil ski area
  • Avoriaz has a resort altitude of 1,800 meters
  • Portes du Soleil skiable terrain is as high as 2,300 metres

The purpose built, snow sure resort of Avoriaz is the highest in the Portes du Soleil - the world's largest international linked ski area. Awarded the Best Family Resort in the Snow Awards justifies its reputation as family friendly, as well as appealing to skiers and boarders of all abilities with slopes such as the best blue run in the area, Abricotine, and Coupe du Monde being the best black run with great views. 

The Flocon Vert label has been awarded to Avoriaz, demonstrating the resort's commitment to environmental preservation and highlighting its dedication to sustainable development. Since the resort opened in the 60s it has been pedestrianised, making it incredibly accessible whether on skis, on foot or even horse drawn sleigh. The resort has a partnership with Blablacar which promotes carpooling to and from resort, additionally BlaBlaBus is the best way to reach the main Avoriaz 1800 station. Once you are on the mountain, the Stash snow park provides fun for the whole family, found between the trees in a reforestation zone. It's made up of different ability level snow parks built with dead untreated wood which has been collected locally, so it blends into the landscape. There's a wide choice of shops, restaurants and bars dotted around the resort, many of which serve local ingredients and French-origin products and most buildings are designed to conserve heat, and with the use of solar panels generate energy too.

Avoriaz is located above Morzine and is part of the Portes du Soleil ski area, both of which are known for their abundance of high-quality and diverse skiing and snowboarding opportunities. Avoriaz itself is perfect for all abilities as there are plenty of cruisy blue slopes and tree lined runs. For the more advanced, upgrading to the Portes du Soleil ski pass is your ticket to endless adventures, you will have access to 600km of piste across France and Switzerland. If you are after a challenge, have a go at skiing The Circuit - it is the best way to see as much as the Portes du Soleil as possible. It takes about six hours for an intermediate skier to complete, not including the all important lunch break. 

Avoriaz has always been at the forefront of snowboarding culture, it was actually the first resort in France to open a terrain park. Since then, it has become an excellent choice for snowboarders and freestylers of all levels, with a wide range of snow parks to choose from. The Stash is an off-piste, tree-run, free-ride park with numerous tables, rails, and wall-rides. Additionally, there is the Lil Stash, which is designed for beginners and children and includes comparable features to those in the main park.
