Great skiing if a bit sparse on snow but to be expected this time of year. Praying for a big dump :)

We stayed in Châtel and purchased the Portes du soleil pass allowing us access to 17 connect resorts including Avoriaz. We were able to ski between Châtel, Morzine, Morgins and Avoriaz without having to take any long Gondola;s or buses/trains. It was fantastic. We enjoyed the Terrain at Avoriaz, it was beautiful. Though not as challenging and without the the... More

Last spring I went on holiday with my friends, during an off-season period. The French people weren't very nice and only focused on commerce. The ski resort though was very good, thats why my review still gets 3 stars. The period I went was off season, but it was crowded with students, going on a break after their exams. The... More

In all honesty I am terrible when it comes to my skiing skills however I did not mind falling over every so often because I got to experience some wonderful views. The slopes are pretty hard on this mountain and not exactly for beignets but there are other places in the local area too which are better for new skiers.... More

I've been boarding most of my life and when I go I like to go high and all day - the missus on the other hand, does not. In fact she doesn't really fancy going at all. But now we have a daughter and at the ripe old age of 3 it was time to get her on the slopes... More

Avoriaz offers lovely wide open blue runs for beginners and intermediates plus more challenging runs for the more adventurous in the party! Perfect for the whole family.

As always, Avoriaz didn't dissapoint with ample mountain for everyone. I went for a short 3 day snowboarding weekend in April, and had two great days of snowboarding and one quite icy day. But as always Avoriaz has plenty of lifts, runs and cafes/bars.

This review is coloured by the fact that the both the weather and snow were about as good as it gets and the lift queues were non-existant. That being said the ski area has miles and miles of piste cruising, plenty of 'beginners' off piste and with an area pass which allows you to ski Les Gets, Morzine etc., ample... More
