The building is high up in the resort which works when there is snow. It is harder to access when the village is clear of snow and the ski room on the second floor has access to the hillside, but this is of no use when that part is free of snow. Apartments at the back of the building do no have great outlooks. We arrived after reception had closed and the room was not made up - it was hard to find someone to take responsibility for finding bedding etc, although the 24hr reception in the Falaise area was eventually able to find someone to help.

Room Tip: Bedroom is a bit tight, but the apartment living area, balcony etc are spacious enough.

Dear Alan,

Thank you for sharing your review. We are however sorry to read you have mixed feelings about your stay in our mountain residence. Our sincere apology if the apartment was not ready at arrival, this shouldn´t be the case and you did right to inform the reception. We hope that you and your family have enjoyed the beautiful ski area even so late in the year. We would love to have you back next year for more Winter sports.

Best regards,

Pierre & Vacances´ team

So four English snowboarding lads stayed in the Electra for Snowboxx, ages from 35, 32, 28 and 26. After landing at Geneva airport, the transfer time to Avoriaz was about 2 hours, the views on the way up through the mountains are incredible so it really doesn’t feel like it takes that long. Once getting to the central drop off point in Avoriaz, your luggage can be taken by snowmobile and sled box or you can get a horse and slay which will take you to where you need to go. There are no cars allowed in the resort so the only mode of transport will be horse and slay, walk or ski lift but without cars, it makes the place feel so much more magical! The Snowboxx reps were there in the resort to give you your wristbands and any extras you might have booked like the Igloo rave, feast on the piste etc and this was quick and effortless. I arranged to have a Snowboard hire through the Snowboxx website, think it was about £80 but I got to pick this up the evening of arrival from one of the rental shops. Board was a Burton, flexible and an all rounder which did the job perfectly for the week without letting me down. Just to add, this was the first time I had ever been snowboarding so having a light flexible board that you can chuck around was perfect for a beginner. We stayed on the 11th floor, room 1105. Room was spacious, had a bedroom and a big living room that had fold out beds with beds underneath, I think on the description it said room can sleep 5/6 but any more than 4 adults would be far too much, with all the gear and luggage it was easily at capacity. With 4 peoples wet gear hanging up, the room quickly got that damp kind of smell which was just about tolerable with the balcony door open so I can’t imagine how it would have been with any more people. Room was at the back of the hotel so the views from the balcony were amazing, had a perfect view of the mountains without any obstructions. The room was well equipped with a kettle, cutlery, fridge and microwave (no oven) which can cater for a food shop at the local Carefour supermarket. There is a good size TV, only has two English news channels but my friend came up with an absolute genius idea and brought the PS4 with him, games of FIFA in the morning and after Apre ski while getting ready to go out were a godsend! There was a slope at the back of the hotel so you could literally ski/board straight in from the lift that drops you off on a small mountain/slope just past the hotel but this is the only lift to get if you’re looking to get back to the hotel, to be honest it we only used ‘ski in’ twice out of the whole week so the hotel being ski in wasn’t really a novelty. The hotel reception staff were part time basically, they were hardly there when you needed them, helpful when they were rarely available but I think they literally worked like 2 hours a day! Deposit was 300 Euros on arrival so make sure you take good care of the room! Access to downtown from the hotel is very easy, you literally just walk out the front door and across the path, down the steps, walk across the path again, down some more steps and you’re there. All shops and restaurants are within walking distance and from this point you can basically board down to the ski lifts to get the day off to a good start! You’re looking at about 7/8 Euros per pint and meals are 15 euros and up. We ate at a restaurant called Restaurant Les Fontaines Blanches every day, and there food there is absolutely superb. Steak, Lamb shank, Carbonara and Spaghetti Bolognaise to name a few were tried, quality of the food is amazing and after trying this place, there was no need to go to eat anywhere else. There is also a fast food place which does a burger, fries and drink for a reasonable price and the service is fairly quick. It’s not McDonalds type fast food, more like restaurant style burgers so nice and stacked, how you’d imagine a proper burger to be. We were lucky most days to even get a table at a restaurant, my advice would be to book a table if a particular restaurant takes your fancy. Every restaurant, and this isn’t an exaggeration, was absolutely rammed every single night. One evening we set out to eat at around half 7 and still by half 10 we hadn’t got a table in any restaurant so that’s when we discovered the fast food place as we were starving! In terms of the actual Snowboarding/Skiing, the place is literally unreal. There’s something to cater for all skill levels and the mountains are just endless so it will take you as far as you want to go! There’s kiddies slopes, slopes for new learners, blue runs, red runs, black runs and enough of all of them for you to not get bored doing the same thing, and to take your skills to the next level. I can honestly say for a first time snowboarder, there is nothing scarier than getting on a ski lift, getting to the top of the mountain, looking down and thinking, wow – this is it. I literally have to go down that! Got on the ski lift for 10 seconds and they had to press the emergency stop button as me and my other first time boarder friend didn’t realise you have to pull the safety guards down from above your head! Off to a good start :D Little tip, if you’re goofy, sit far right of the ski lift, regular stance – far left. Only advise to anyone doing it for the first time is you just have to go for it, face your fear, don’t hold back, relax and just go down at your own pace. It doesn’t have to be a mad panic to try and throw in crazy turns and wiz past people! There are plenty of other first timers there in exactly the same position so just take your time and nail the basics until you feel comfortable. Yes there are some parts of the mountain where skiers have absolutely destroyed the runs, making whoops everywhere so it’s impossible for a boarder to just glide effortlessly from left to right, it really tests your skills and you’re constantly planning your turns to navigate through the whoops maze! I didn’t mind it as it helped me nail my turns better and tuned my reactions but my other first time boarder friend didn’t fare so well and absolutely hated it. You can get the ski lifts up to Switzerland where the views are absolutely breathtaking, and the slopes are a lot more untouched if you’re having troubles. In terms of the actual festival, the atmosphere was brilliant – usually started at about 8ish and finished at around 11ish. Shame it didn’t go on much longer really but everyone was there, the sound, lighting, flame shows etc were on point and it was impossible to find your feet staying still. We were really annoyed as a couple of big names pulled out, DJ Luck and MC Neat, Hannah Wants and TQD to name a few. Basement Jaxx, High Contrast and Wilkinson absolutely smashed it though! Drinks tokens are 20 euros for 10, and a double spirit is 4 tokens but they are big measures and will end up warming you up and sorting you out! Plus…..there’s a lot more than just drink on offer if you know what I mean for those people that need an extra kick….not that I’d know ;) Downtown is pretty rubbish to be honest, there’s a few little bars scattered around if you want to keep drinking but nothing worth staying out until 4 in the morning for. There was a club called XX which was absolutely insane though, everyone crams in there after the festival and it’s got a very underground ravey type feel, again lightening and sound in there kinda makes you feel like you’re in Ibiza! We were always back to the room by 2ish at the latest as there’s honestly not much worth staying out for but when the whole point of the holiday is the snowboarding, it makes sense to go early so you don’t waste a day being too hungover! And if you do feel hideous, the alpine air will soon sort you out the next day! Tip – if you’re dehydrated, just eat the snow! It’s a great pick up for dry mouth and to cool down, saves having to buy a bottle of water at like 8 euros too!We didn’t do any of the extras apart from the Igloo party which I HIGHLY recommend, it was magical! TQD pulled out and Wilkinson stepped in, absolute scenes! You get picked up in a snowmobile and taken up the mountain to this secluded spot which is unreal, fire cannons, tents, decks and a DJ. What more could you need, snow was falling, music was absolutely banging and everyone was just vibing! Unfortunately we couldn’t go in the igloo as it had hardly snowed the whole time we were there and it was unstable for raving, you could go in there to get a drink though. Igloo party was honestly the best night of the holiday, the downside is you have to walk back and it’s an absolute TRECK! If you’re going as a bunch of single guys, you can forget about there being any real chances of pulling, the place was a meat infestation! No joke, it was about 8 lads to one girl! And most of the girls had come in groups with guys as couples or friends so it’s hard to pick the weak ones from the pack! Most groups of girls would prefer a summer holiday rather than a snowy one so that’s why they were scarce! The apre ski arena was always banging, DJ on the terrace playing everything to get you in the mood after the ski lifts close at around 4ish, you can watch the human bowling and skin pool etc. Most people would go here for pre festival drinks and it’s always a good spot to pick a target! In summary, the place is absolute incredible, the snowboarding and mountains are breathtaking, the whole place is a dream day and night and easily outweighs the festival side of it although that is a brilliant addition and the both compliment the day perfectly! Honestly haven’ t got a bad thing to say, would definitely come back for the resort and the hotel + festival. It’s really expensive everywhere so don’t think you can do this on a budget like Kavos or somewhere! You’ll need AT LEAST 700 euros, I took 600 and by the last day I was all out. Make sure you bring something waterproof for your feet for general walking about in the day or night, trainers will get absolutely destroyed the first day and EVERYONE wears Timberlands which did the job perfectly! You have to take your own rooms rubbish for the week out yourself on the last day or you get fined, never had to do this before but it’s a very clean resort and everyone has to do it. That’s it … until next year <3

The apartments are a great base for a family ski holiday. We had the 7 person apartment which was a good size for family of 4. The 3 beds in the living area, if put up, would mean no space at all to move around so you would need to be very keen on skiing to put up with 7 adults in one apartment! Everything was clean and fantastic views over the resort from our apartment on floor 10. It was easy to get to the shops/restaurants with escalators to help on the way back up. The boys were skiing for the first time and although we walked down to the nursery slopes on day 1 for safety, after that they were able to ski down, go past the Yeti restaurant and link into the lifts. The return run got harder through the week as the snow melted and we did manage to ski back every day but it looked like it would be very difficult for the following weeks unless there is more snow. Free wifi for 5 devices that works well in your rooms. All in all, Electra apartments are well worth the money you pay.

Clean well decorated apartment. Looks like it has been refurbished recently. Easy ski in ski out. We had a 5 person apartment which was just fine for two of us, I reckon 3 would be equally comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful. The main shops we about 5 minutes walk away downhill with escalators to help you on the way back. I would definitely go back there in the future.
