Looking For A Ski Holiday? 7 Tips For An Awesome Avoriaz Ski Holiday

Avoriaz is the highest resort (1800m) in the Portes du Soleil ski area, which spans France and Switzerland and also includes other iconic resorts like Morzine and Les Gets.

It exists thanks to the vision of 1960 Olympic Downhill Champion Jean Vuarnet, who was raised in Morzine and always fantasized about creating a purpose-built ski resort on the slopes above his hometown.

The slopes are usually in terrific condition, the contemporary architecture blends brilliantly with the natural surroundings and the apres-ski is superb̶  if you’re tempted to try it for yourself, here are seven tips for an awesome Avoriaz ski holiday!

1.Skiing & Snowboarding

Avoriaz includes pistes for novices, families, experts, and exploring the trees, while there are also five ungroomed snowcross runs that are monitored and avalanche controlled. It’s also a haven for snowboarders, particularly at the famous Avoriaz Burton Stash snowpark.
