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 21-Apr-2015)

A number of French resorts closed for the season at the end of last week or over the weekend including Flaine, Isola 2000, La Toussuire, Le Corbier, Les Carroz, Les Orres, Megeve, Orcieres, Samoens, Serre Chevalier, Val Cenis, Valmorel and Vars. These add to the resorts that had already closed. There are still 30 of the 57 resorts we feature in France open for skiing though, so there is plenty or terrain available. As you might imagine for this late in the season, the best conditions can be found on the higher slopes, such as at Argentiere/Chamonix (0/175cm), Val Thorens (100/220cm), the Espace Killy (55/160cm), La Plagne (5/180cm), Les Arcs (35/190cm) and Les Deux Alpes (15/210cm). Many of these resort received a light dusting of snow on the highest slopes over the weekend whist lower slopes in France received some wet weather. The weather on Monday 20th April was much better though with bright sunny skies providing perfect spring skiing conditions, and a chance to work on your goggle tan marks. This is the final week for most of the resorts that are open so if you want to ski in France this could be your last chance this season. If you cannot get out there this week there are a number of resorts planning to remain open into May including Argentiere, Chamonix, Tignes, Val d’Isere and Val Thorens.

European Weather Outlook

A mostly sunny and settled week is forecast for the Alps, with the freezing level sitting on or above 3,000m. Some more unsettled weather is forecast for the end of the week, with some heavy precipitation likely. It remains to be seen how low the freezing level will drop so keep an eye on the latest forecasts if you’re heading out this weekend – you could be in for a good late season dump. A similar forecast is expected for the Pyrenees this week, however the precipitation predicted for later in the week is set to fall almost exclusively as rain at all levels. Some light snow is forecast for Bulgaria on Wednesday, but apart from this expect sunny skies and pleasant temperatures of around +2 to +4C at mid-mountain level. Lovely settled spring weather is forecast for much of Scandinavia, providing some great late-season riding conditions. Sweden can expect some more clouds from Thursday onwards, sadly bringing the chance of some light rain to the Swedish hills. Expect a week of mild weather in Scotland, with some good sunny breaks and the chance of a few light rain showers dominating the week’s weather. A much colder change is expected on Saturday and into next week, with the potential for some heavy late-season snowfall.
