Avoriaz 1800 Resort Info

Part of the vast Portes du Soleil domain, Avoriaz is arguably one of the most enjoyable resorts in the region. Sitting at 1800m it can guarantee good snow, unlike most of the other resorts. It claims to be a boarding Mecca, as the first European resort to embrace the sport. There is a specialist park, a half-pipe, a slalom course and extensive off-piste. Additionally, there is a giant "ecological park" (loads of natural modules set off-piste between the trees)called the Stash.This also attracts better skiers, as do some great black pistes. The most notable of these is 'The Wall', which plunges you down into Switzerland and should only be tried by those with plenty of tough miles under their belts. But don't despair beginners and intermediates - there are countless motorway pistes across the whole network to get you sorted and smiling. Unfortunately, the various slopes are not very well linked up.

As a purpose-built resort, Avoriaz was one of the first to work out a largely sensible layout. There are no cars, making for a calm, safe atmosphere. Lifts are very close to the accommodation, which varies greatly depending on the age of the building. Horse-drawn sleighs are popular, but the ensuing mess can be rather unsightly. Because of its attractions, Avoriaz often gets crowded and can be expensive. There are about 25 restaurants (some good, but pricey) and reasonable nightlife. The ski school is excellent. Children are well catered for, including a very good kids' village and Geneva is only two hours away.

Overall, Avoriaz is blessed with a number of qualities to establish its excellent reputation in the region. It's good for its snow, its challenging skiing and the fact that you can always ski to your door. More Avoriaz 1800 resort information

Snow Overview - France  (snow news updated 23-Apr-2017)

Sunny weather dominated across the open French resorts on Thursday 20th April, providing excellent visibility to enjoy the skiing on offer. The temperature remains low for this time of year, helping to preserve the snow cover. The bright skies are expected to last throughout the weekend, although it is forecast to get warmer. Bonneval sur Arc (35/250cm) in the Haute Maurienne Vanoise area reported the deepest snow base of our featured French resorts on Thursday, and the neighbouring resorts of Val Cenis (5/200cm) sat ranked third place, just behind Cauterets (0/210cm) in the Pyrenees. Friday 21st April will be the last day of skiing in Val Cenis, while Bonneval will remain open until 28th April. Cauterets will remain open for skiing until 23rd April. This is the last week of skiing in Alpe d’Huez (0/160cm), Avoriaz (30/110cm), Serre Chevalier (5/130cm), Les Arcs (10/160cm) and La Plagne (0/190cm), all of which still have some great skiing on offer for their last week of the season. The major skiing areas of the Espace Killy, Three Valleys, Portes du Soleil, Grand Massif and the Chaminox valley still offer superb skiing, and in particular on their higher slopes. In the Three Valleys, Courchevel (15/136cm) and Meribel (0/136cm) will close the season this weekend but Val Thorens (95/150cm) will remain open for skiing until 1st May. Tignes (35/145) will remain open for the winter season until 8th May although Val d’Isere (35/145cm) will close for their season on 1st May. Val d’Isere plans to open for summer skiing from 10th June until 16th July, with Tignes offering summer skiing from 24th June to 6th August. Les Deux Alpes (0/200cm), currently offering some great skiing high up will close for the winter season on 29th April, then reopen for summer skiing from 24th June to 2nd September.

European Weather Outlook

The forecast for the continental European skiing locations is for further clear skies as we move over the weekend. However, cloudier skies are forecast to return and the temperature should once again drop. This could bring some heavy snowfall too. Solden in Austria has the greatest predicted snowfall of any of our reported resorts, with over two metres of fresh snow possible by the end of April, with the heaviest dumps of snow likely in the middle of next week. Austria is predicted to receive the greatest amount of snow overall, although resorts in Italy, France and Switzerland should not miss out either. April can often deliver some outstanding wintry conditions and this year is no different. Fresh snow could hit the Scottish resorts over this period too.
