Overview

Avoriaz is a truly international and family friendly resort which is benefiting from new investment and some fabulous new apartments. It is located in the heart of the Portes du Soleil ski area which consists of 650km of ski runs in the Northern French Alps. The resort is car free, so horse drawn sleighs or snowcats transport your luggage to your accommodation (payable locally). All the residences in Avoriaz benefit from 100% ski-in/ski-out access to the Portes du Soleil ski area.

Facilities

Several bars, a nightclub and restaurants in the resort centre produce a lively après ski atmosphere and restaurant reservations in peak season are essential. The resort also boasts Aquariaz, the largest water complex to be built in the Alps. There is also a squash court, a cinema and a bowling alley as well as paragliding, hang-gliding, speed riding, snowshoe excursions, dog sleigh rides, mountain biking on snow, night sledging, ice skating, ice scuba diving, hot air balloon rides and horse sleigh rides.  There are musical and sports events organised throughout the winter.

Facilities for children

The resort boasts an excellent Children’s village for children aged 3 to 16 years, as well as a crèche that takes children from 3 months to 5 years.

Mountain info

The Avoriaz ski area is divided into four zones. The Beginner’s Sector is directly accessible from the village. It is made up of green and blue runs and is dedicated to those learning to ski at their own pace. The piste 1ere Glisse has been shaped according to the different steps a beginner needs to go through when learning to ski. The Expert Sector is made up of long black slopes and a black snow cross. The Family Sector is a network of blue and red slopes, a boarder cross, one blue, two red and one black snow cross areas. This sector enables those with different abilities to take the same chair lift and ski close together.  As well as each sector there is ‘The Wall’, an imposing mogul field, as well as five snow parks (including the world famous ‘Stash’) which brings freestyle elements into a natural environment and one super pipe.
