As the self-proclaimed capital of snowboarding, Avoriaz is quickly becoming one of the hottest resorts in Europe. It is the highest resort in one of the largest ski areas in the world, the Portes du Soleil, boasting more than 650km of pistes, spanning both France and Switzerland.
In the shadow of Mont Blanc, it's no surprise that the views at this altitude are incredible, and the same can be said of the snow record. The skiing area is sensational, with huge amounts of varied terrain to explore, where the experienced skier will find more than enough to keep them busy, including over 20 challenging black slopes. The keenest snowboarders can’t complain either with the most highly acclaimed snowpark in the Alps, Jake Burton’s “The Stash” – imported from California, this is the ultimate freestyle and free-riding forest park for you to unleash your creative side. With 3 more snowparks, a "Mini stash", halfpipe and (more often than not) a free airbag, all standards of skiiers/snowboarders have an opportunity to experience freestyle. That said, the resort is also very well-suited to first-time and intermediate skiers looking for a more relaxed break, with plenty of easily accessible green, blue and red slopes in Avoriaz, Morzine and Les Gets. This is one of those occasions when the lift pass upgrade is well worth it.
The town itself is very picturesque, nestled away in the mountains designed architecturally to fit in within the surroundings. You can ski all the way through it most of the time and as no cars are allowed in the centre, everything is in walking distance; it’s a quaint place to wander around but you can take a horse-drawn sleigh if you prefer. On top of all that there is plenty to do in resort, with a great atmosphere if you want to hit the town after the slopes.
We offer a range of apartments between 2 and 5 star throughout the village. Due to the compact nature of the resort you are always close to the resort’s facilities and all of the apartments allow for doorstep skiing.
Cross-country skiing, helicopter tours, horse drawn sled rides, husky dog rides, night skiing (Morzine), retro rentals and snow mobiles.
