Avoriaz is part of the vast Portes du Soleil ski area. It is the highest resort in the region, making it a top choice for skiers looking for snow surety. The resort is purpose-built and by no means pretty, although it is certainly impressive being perched on the side of a cliff overlooking neighbouring Morzine. Whilst it doesn’t offer aesthetic value, it offers ski convenience in spades.
Car-free Avoriaz is a great choice for a family ski holiday, not only because there are no vehicles, but because in their place there are gentle nursery pistes – perfect! The transfer time is short and therefore hassle-free, thanks to its proximity to Geneva airport. There’s also a fantastic indoor water park, a bowling alley and a cinema, plus all the normal winter activities you’d expect.
