With its high-altitude snowfall, great advanced skiing, and a friendly, pedestrian village, it’s no wonder Avoriaz has gained popularity amongst holidaymakers in recent years. Situated in the middle of the Portes du Soleil with nearby resorts of Morzine and Les Gets, Avoriaz is connected with 11 other ski resorts in two countries – giving you a whopping 600km+ to explore on skis. As the world’s oldest cross-border ski area, you can pop over for a ski in Switzerland, and be back in time for après.
Avoriaz is a purpose-built ski resort that has luckily escaped the ghastly concrete block buildings of other purpose-built resorts and opted for buildings that nearly camouflage with the mountain. Made from wooden-tiles, from far way the buildings look like rocks on the mountain. One of the best things about its location is that the village is situated in the sun for most of the day, whilst the pistes stay shady. And with a stunning view overlooking Morzine, this ski-in, ski-out resort will have you coming back for more.
Skiing in Avoriaz is great for advanced skiers yet still caters for skiers or all levels. There are a number of challenging black runs for the adventurous, as well as some lovely open bowls perfect for cruisy turns.
Avoriaz is a family favourite as well due to its child-friendly ski areas and huge indoor waterpark to keep the kids entertained.
