So what's it like?
A great modern resort with an enormous 650km of piste and fantastic snow
Set high above Morzine, at 1800m, Avoriaz ski resort is the ideal gateway to 650km of slopes in the Portes du Soleil area. Some of the best skiing in France and Switzerland is accessible with an area pass, from the traditional French villages of Morzine and Les Gets to the high altitude skiing around Avoriaz. For those who like adventure, skiing across the border into Switzerland is not to be missed whilst those who like to stay local can enjoy some of the best snow in the Portes du Soleil. The resort itself is characterised by its bold, modern architecture and has a completely car free centre. The peacefulness that this brings, combined with its stunning mountain top location, makes Avoriaz the ideal place to escape the rat race.
