AlpyBus Reviews For Avoriaz
Quick Guide to Avoriaz
Avoriaz makes up part of the Portes du Soliel Ski area, this huge ski area covers a total of 14 resorts and 650km of market pistes! The resort itself is made up of 4 zones - Super Morzine, Lindaret Valley, Fornet and Haut Forts. Avoriaz also sits nicely in the middle of the PDS offering quick access to the Swiss resort of Le Crosets, Champery and French resort Chatel to name a few.
Avoriaz has various exciting park runs, including a half pipe, and the one of a kind ‘Stash’ originally developed by snowboard brand Burton, you can follow this tree lined piste down into the Lindaret Bowl. On route you'll discover lots of different features to play with and once you're finished, a plethora of sun drenched restaurants to choose from at the bottom.
The resort offers a great mix of runs for all the family, plus it has a great snow record often being one of the first resorts in the region to receive snow fall.
In the Winter Avoriaz plays hosts to music festivals such as Transition, Rock the Pistes and Snowboxx, where visitors can expect on piste gigs and parties as well as ski and snowboarding displays.
Avoriaz was built back in the 60’s as a purpose built ski resort, so it is car free with the only traffic being snow cats, sleds or horse and carts. Most accommodation here is ski in-ski out and the architecture was inspired by the cliff faces where the high-rise wood clad apartments are meant to blend in to the surrounding scenery. There are plenty of bars, restaurants and shops to keep everyone happy or you can get easy access to Morzine via the Prodains lift.
But it’s not all about the winter in Avoriaz, in summer the resort it still alive with activity. With the recent development of the Aquariaz water park, plenty of mountain biking trails and parks, famous road biking routes and golf courses, not to mention the Linderts goat village - the resort delivers on all levels. There is of course the normal mountainous activities to do such as hiking or if you are feeling adventurous, paragliding or climbing.
