About Avoriaz

Built on a sheer granite cliff and well placed on the Portes du Soleil circuit, Avoriaz has arguably the world’s largest lift-connected ski region.

Avoriaz is also famous for its wood clad buildings in award winning architectural style and indeed won an award for this. A “doorstep skiing” pioneer, linked to Swiss resorts in the Region via the legendary ‘Wall’ descent (you can take the chair down instead if necessary). Skiing for all standards, plus plenty for experts including five testing blacks (20 in Region). Avoriaz is a car free zone designed for relaxed living, with a famous childrens’ village in the centre.

This huge area links together twelve ski resorts on the Chablais mountainsides between France and Switzerland. The village of Avoriaz 1800 can be considered as its epicentre! When you choose to stay here, you benefit from a choice geographical location that gives you access to an enormous part of this outstanding ski area in the heart of the Alps. Downhill or cross-country skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers, freeriders and freestylers…
