Skiing Holidays in Avoriaz

A ski holiday in Avoriaz gives you access to the whole of the Portes du Soleil domain. Situated at 1800m, it can guarantee good snow, unlike most of the other resorts in the region. Avoriaz is a purpose built ski holiday destination and thus has a largely sensible layout. The town is car free, making for a calm, safe atmosphere. You'll never have a long walk to the lifts on your Avoriaz Ski Holiday as all accommodation is close to the slopes. Horse-drawn sleighs are an added novelty.
Avoriaz Ski Holidays: The Skiing
Avoriaz ski holidays are heaven for snowboarders, being 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. More advanced skiers also like to take advantage of these, along with some great black pistes. The most infamous of Avoriaz's more challenging runs is 'The Wall', which plunges you down into Switzerland and should only be tried by those with plenty of challenging skiing under their belts. Beginners and intermediates will not be left out in the cold on an Avoriaz ski holiday, as there is many a wide motorway piste across the whole network.
