Avoriaz Ski Hire Overview

Avoriaz belongs to one of the biggest interlinked ski areas not only in Europe but in the World. Together with Morzine and a few other ski resorts in the French Alps, they form the well known Portes du Soleil ski area which has up 650 kilometres of pistes. A purpose-built, pedestrian ski resort, Avoriaz caters superbly to all types of skiers, especially families visiting with young children. The ski-in and ski-out accommodation facilities at Avoriaz make it very convenient for families with children to feel a lot safer and to fully immerse themselves in the holiday spirit. Although part of the Portes du Soleil grants it access to hundreds of kilometres of pistes, for skiers who wanted to remain within the area, there are up to 75 kilometres of pistes around the local Avoriaz ski area to indulge in. The pistes around here are best suited to beginner and intermediate level skiers. There are up to 6 blacks here that advanced skiers would absolutely love but why hang around when there are several blacks and off-piste opportunities across the ski area.

Avoriaz is a very popular ski resort that sees a large influx of skiers each ski season. As earlier mentioned, the resort is purpose-built and as such, has several shops and amenities that cater to all manner of requirements.
