Of the 14 resorts of the domain of Portes du Soleil, Avoriaz boasts a central location, not far from Switzerland. The site offers incredibly scenic skiing, amongst snow covered pine trees and the varied landscape of Lac Leman, les Dents du Midi and Mont Blanc. Avoriaz, one of France’s trend-setting resorts and one of the top destinations for Skiing Holiday France, has often been referred to as “the resort of well-being.” Here, the rustic feeling is amplified by the multitude of residences and chalets clad in cedar shingle tiles and characterised by fairy-tale snow-covered roofs, following the angle of the slopes.
Still, the mountain tranquillity easily blends with modern, efficient designs. The resort’s streets, however, are a hectic and colourful spectacle, with sleighs replacing cars, and bars and terrace cafés soaking up the sun. The ski area of Grand Avoriaz, with snow guaranteed throughout the season (boasting an average of 8 metres every winter), has 49 runs geared towards all ability levels, which are well-connected via an efficient lift system. Apart from Alpine skiing, the area provides some cross-country and freestyle options.
The resort’s snowpark is also an advantage. Avoriaz also takes advantage of the natural shape of the mountains in order to create playgrounds for families with children. Otherwise, the resort has a vast scope of additional activities, including snowshoeing, sleigh riding, dig sleighing (driving a harness drawn by three dogs) as well as a helicopter tour revealing vistas over the entirety of Avoriaz. Off the snow, visitors might want to try the site’s varied shopping, eating, fitness and wellness options. The resort of Avoriaz allows no traffic except for skis, aiming to preserve the environment. As driving to your accommodation in Avoriaz Apartments is out of the question, the resort has provided sledges and shuttles available all around and at the different residences in the vicinity.
