Situated high up in the Alpine mountains Avoriaz has beautiful views overlooking Morzine and at the highest points you can see Dents Blanches and Dents du Midi. During the season there are excellent snow conditions which adds to its authentic mountain village feel with its snow-covered paths and pistes. To its advantage the resort is also in one of the best locations for skiing, with plenty of local slopes to explore, over 29km of ski trails meander through pine forests and resurface at viewpoints where you can see the stunning surrounding peaks in all their natural glory. The resort is also within close proximity to the famous Portes du Soleil domain where there is an abundance of slopes with over 250 km of cross-country ski trails.
The resort has a tranquil ambience which has been carefully crafted by the design of the village and largely due to the resort being totally car free. The 1960’s baby of the French ski resort boom Avoriaz is well designed in comparison to some of the concrete resorts of this era with features such as the ski-in, ski-out accommodation . Avoriaz is family orientated offering great facilities for children, there is also a strong village feel with most accommodation less than 500m from the central hub of the village. The resort has a pleasant atmosphere during the day and in the evenings there is a special nocturnal feature where the backdrop of a cliff is lit up, giving the village a unique charm.
