A ski holiday is one of my favourite types of holiday; the mountain air, the adrenaline, and the crisp white snow beneath your feet.
And this winter season is the perfect time to head on that ski holiday, whether you are a beginner or you’ve been skiing in Avoriaz for years. Here is my guide to skiing in Morzine-Avoriaz.
Avoriaz is built on a shelf high above the town of Morzine, which is among the pioneering towns of skiing with its first lifts dating back to the early 1930s.
The Avoriaz part of the skiing area consists of about 130 km of piste, but when combined within the entire Portes du Soleil area, it offers over 650km of piste.
The Portes du Soleil ski pass gives you access to over 650km of pistes – all you have to do is book your ski pass online.
Avoriaz is high and super snowy, but the Portes du Soleil area as a whole is quite low. Lack of snow is very rarely a problem in the Morzine-Avoriaz region.
You can head to the village if you want to, but the centre of the resort has more than enough restaurant to boast; most of them with the impeccable view of the Alps readily available.
