Avoriaz 1800

Increasingly popular ski station in the heart of the Portes du Soleil Ski Domaine which offers 650 kms pistes.  Pedestrianised resort with horse drawn sledges. Stunning mountain views.

Located on a plateau high above Morzine valley, Avoriaz is a spellbinding ski resort that has a bewitching effect on visitors the moment they arrive. Blending perfectly into its surroundings with its elegantly wood-clad apartments and chalets, Avoriaz is a class act at the heart of the Portes du Soleil ski area. In this car-free destination, horse-drawn sledges criss-cross the resort centre, sharing the snowbound lanes with skiers, children on toboggans and après-skiers taking the mountain air. Avoriaz is an ideal destination for visitors of all ages thanks to its wide range of activities, with skiing for beginners in Annie Famose’s “Village des Enfants”, and freestyle skiing and snowboarding for bigger kids (there’s no age limit!) in the Stash, Europe’s first ecological snowpark.

  • An average of 8 metres’ snowfall per winter.
