We are just back from a fantastic family holiday in Avoriaz Feb 2nd-9th 2013. This was the first ski holiday for my children, 4 of them aged between 6 and 11 and they had a wonderful experience. I can highly recommend the Village des Enfants Ski School and most especially Sylvan (he was fab!).The children had a fun week with him and got great instruction. I skied with the instructor, Jan, in a parents class and I found him great also. We experienced the most amazing snow for the week. Being in Avoriaz for the week was like being transported to Narnia. Our accomodation was basic in Fontaines Blanches but very acceptable and reasonably priced.The location cannot be beaten, all of us having fallen in love with the magical Boulangerie next door!
The only negative aspect to the holiday was our transfer from Geneva airport to Avoriaz. Unfortunately, I booked a private transfer with Alpybus. Please read this carefully do not book Alpybus-even if you are given the seats for free, don't do it!.They are the most incompetent, ridiculous and downright rude company I have ever dealt with.The journey from Geneva to Avoriaz should take approx 11/2 hrs, it took Alpybus over 4. We didnt get into Avoriaz til 1-30 a.m, our plane having touched down in Geneva at 7-15pm. They were over 1hr late leaving Geneva and then the journey itself was farsical. The driver pulled over the bus about a half an hr into our journey to attach the wheel chains, we were on the side of the road for over an hr and he met with little success to attach the chains. He then drove the bus for about 50metres and pulled over again to take off the chains. This bizarre behavior continued a few times during the journey. Our return journey was not without mishap either as they cancelled our scheduled private transfer the morning we were due to depart but confirmed they had places on another bus for us at a reduced rate of 200 euro as it was not the private transfer we had ordered. When we eventually got the bus the driver would not agree to the 200euro price we were quoted by the Alpybus office and insisted rather roughly that we pay the 270 euro price.Trust me when I tell you- Life's too short to have to experience Alpybus and on your holiday, if you love and care for your family, don't do it. You'd be better off walking!
But back to Avoriaz, a magical place that we all can't wait to return to in 2014 if Angela Merkell allows us.

Just one word enough to describe PDS: unbeatable.

We went to Avoriaz 5th January 2013 for a week. We decided to go to a high altitude resort for guaranteed snow and we were not disappointed. We had 5 days of "Blue-bird" skiing with a half metre dump of snow just before we left - giving us powder skiing for the last day - bliss.
I would whole-heartedly recommend Avoriaz for all types of skiers for the following reasons:
1) Beginners - there are several learner slopes right in the centre of the village, connected to easy blue runs to build up confidence. Further a-field, all mountains have wide blue runs allowing beginners to access most areas of the resort.
2) Intermediates - All accommodation is ski-in / ski-out, with plenty of red runs to keep you busy with the Portes Soleil ski-pass offering access to 12 ski resorts and 650km of skiing. 6 resorts in France and Switzerland are in direct reach, skiing at the other 6 resorts involves taking a bus and a bit more hassle. We skied at Morzine and Les Gets for a day - both offer superb skiing and a wide variety of runs, but you need to take the cable car down to the valley and a short bus trip to the slopes - worth it all the same.
3) Expert skiers - the black runs are limited in Avoriaz, but there are loads of off-piste (avalanche danger permitting). We tried the "Swiss wall" black run (a 1km long mogal black run that is too steep to piste bash!) - We came to grief a few times, but certainly a slope to remember!
As ever in France, the cost for food and drink on the slopes is exhorbitant, but I suggest you just swallow hard and remember the locals need to make their money in the 4 / 5 month ski season for the whole year!
We stayed in a Direct-ski apartment (Les Portes du Soleil) right in the centre of the pedestrianised village with a superb view of the learner slopes. The apartments are basic and a bit noisy (revellers leaving bars during the early hours) but it is a perfect base for access to fabulous skiing.
All in all, Avoriaz is a great ski resort - give it a try!

fred from France
The resort is very pleasant with well maintained pistes.
Station pedestrian has a certain charm.
Cooking is good overall, ski rental is the cheapest in ski-republic in central station.
Being a little skier I have not taken advantage of the 650 kms of slopes.

Chris from United Kingdom
Avoriaz has everything, amazing on piste, fantastic off piste and a very friendly local atmosphere. From the kids ski school to the Swiss wall, from the snowpark to the stash, from the tavaillon to the place, you have it all. Oh, and it is all ski to the door. And only an hour from Geneva?? No brainer.

Fred D'Ally from United Kingdom
Spent the first week of January in Morzine and Avoriaz.
Stay in Morzine, it's a quainter village with a great selection of chalet accommodation. Eat at L'Etale restaurant, food is fresh and varied. Although be prepared to wait, so don't eat here if you are in a rush.
Avoriaz skiing is brilliantly linked the other to Portes du Soleil slopes.
Spent a fair amount of time around the Lindaret area, great selection of skiing here, not crazy about the restaurants in the Lindaret bowl itself.
If you can get to the Ardent lifts, it's better starting your day from here, as it is not as crowded as the Pleney lifts (if snowing heavily avoid, as you may get stuck up at the Ardent car park). Will definitely return to this resort 'cos it is well linked (plenty skiing) and close to Geneva for short breaks. Enjoy!

Richard from France
Having skied all over the world and experienced several types of accommodation, we decided to buy a house in the PDS, it really is that good. If you want to party go to Morzine, if you want high altitude skiing go to Avoriaz and if you want a change of scenery, go to one of the other 5 or more ski areas on the lift pass. No other place in the world has so much accessible on piste terrain in 2 countries, not even the mighty Sella Ronda, which is navigable either way for a day but doesn't allow you to explore too far, can beat the PDS. The off-piste is simply mind blowing and I'm not talking about the stuff to the side of the markers! You could say I'm biased but after 30 years on skis, you know when it's right! I haven't mentioned the summer season yet but it's just as good if not better for MTB and road biking, at least 5 Cat 1 including a HC climb not to mention hundreds of MTB trails - Enough said. St Jean D'Aulps, wear the fox hat! It's the place for winners.

So we decided to return to this lovely resort, only about 2 hours from Geneva, this time for 2 weeks. We only confirmed a few weeks ago after the snow really started and remained on the ground. The levels are the best for many a year, 250cm at higher levels, 230cm in the town. Runs are extremely well groomed and there are stash parks, obstacle runs and much more to satisfy any skiers fancy.
We can visually see the high snow levels as we have to climb to exit the buildings, and most of the fences are under snow.
A most charming pedestrian only resort, where one can ski through the town at the end of the day.
Ski-out/ski-in is truly a reality in this resort, with over 650kms of runs, one can never tire of trying new areas.
Plenty of restaurants, bars and other eating places and 2 supermarkets that hold everything, and more, that one needs for a comfortable stay.
There is a lot of development going on and hope it will not detract from the atmosphere of Avoriaz.

We heard about Avoriaz through a friend that had just returned, after we had been to another, more distanced resort from Geneva, which, for us, is the easiest and closest airport to the French resorts. In 2010 we decided to give it a try, and were we so pleasantly surprised. Close to Geneva, by bus, completely pedestrian, and so so ski friendly. We decided to stay 2 weeks to really get to know and enjoy the resort, in a self catering apartment. Could not have been better.
Enough ski runs, at different degrees of difficulty to please one and all. Ski to Italy, or Switzerland for lunch and then return home for dinner.
Variety of restaurants, pubs, supermarkets and other speciality shops to satisfy us.
Enjoyed so much we go back next week for 2 weeks!
Snow has fallen, skis are ready, what more could we want?

Still waiting for the first big dump! However, unlike last Dec the ground is cold and hard so early snow will settle and make a good base. Snow cannons have been tested and snow is sticking. New accommodation and underground parking completed.

My wife and I spent a week (W/O February 26/2011) in Les Portes du Soleil and loved it! We were staying in Champoussin in the fartest Swiss resort on the Portes du Soleil map. As avid skiers and having gone everywhere from Whistler to Zermatt and anywhere else in between like Austria and Italie, we look for real mountain feel and powder. Starting from one end (Swiss side) of the 12 Portes du Soleil resorts and going as far as we could to the other side (In France) was our daily fun. We were always trying to go as far as possible for our lunch break before returning back by a different route. One note: the early bird gets the best snow and the farthest village..What a "trip" !

Avoriaz will stay open to the end of the season, Easter Monday. All the higher slopes are still in good condition. Lower and beginners pistes are suffering by midday. Very warm but lovely for sitting out for lunch.

27/2/10 - Just had the stormiest day for years in Avoriaz: strong winds but an amazing amount of snow falling. Great conditions for today; sun, powder etc. Ben Cavet, our sponsored British mogul skier, has placed 2nd in senior mens Europa cup and he is only 16! Keep your eyes open for him when you visit Avoriaz. Happy to help anyone with advice.

That was my 7th time in Avoriaz. Great week, with a lots of powder and well taken care tracks!
Stayed at Club Med. The very best hotel of the mountain.
Don´t hesitate, go to Avoriaz and have a great experience.

Richard Jones from United Kingdom
Went to Avoriaz for the 3rd time in 4 seasons this March. I stayed outside of Avoriaz down near the Ardent lift which gives you a much better access to the whole Portes Du Soleil. Once again despite its low altitude the snow was very good, weather generally good also. For anyone who is considering going who has not been before I can only speak highly of the place. The runs are endless and I have only covered 80% of it after 3 weeks worth of skiing. A few tips on where not to go: Mont Chery on the other side of Les Gets is a hell of a hike, especially from Avoriaz and personally I would not recomend it. When I was out there a few local people said that there was planning permission underway to extend the resort south east from Mont Chery to link it with another resort, to give an impressive 900km+ linked piste. The only problem is, again, that it will be a hike from Avoriaz and is also low in altitude. As long as you head high, you won't be dissapointed. I will give it a break for a few years but I will certainly be going back in the future. All in all Avoriaz is a great resort. The place I stayed was with a company called Ouiski, and in chalet Jules. Great location, great food and a free bar next to the outdoor hot tub. What more could you ask for?

Andy from United Kingdom
My 9th time in Avoriaz and Les Portes du Soleil and had a fantastic time again. The more we go the more hidden (and not so hidden) gems we find. Get a guide and ski the Valle De La Manche. Once you have done this and when the snow conditions are right you can go on your own but make sure you take the necessary equipment (transceiver, probe, shovel etc..)
After a dump of snow ski the Avoiraz bowl; take the first chair up and ski back down on the far left for great bumps, drop offs and general hoots.
Avoriaz is a great place to ski and snowboard and you will never get bored.
Put it on your list of places to go.

Ron Bourke from Ireland
Just back from Avoriaz. Went with a group of 11 including beginners and people who had skied before a few times in different resorts. Everyone had a brilliant week. Avoriaz is a great resort for all abilities and there was loads of snow. I recommend for anyone who has been skiing before to get the overall lift pass for the Portes Du Soleil area; well worth it as you will find plenty of new runs every day and can ski between Switzerland and France. There are plenty of restaurants in the town and in the mountains and most are reasonably priced. For nightlife, I can only recommend bar Chapka as it was the only bar we went to for the week; sound staff and great atmosphere and plenty of free drink. We all hope to be back next year. Avoriaz gets 10 out of 10.

Best resort for skiing yet. Have been skiing for a number of years now and found this resort to be great for skiing to door. Restaurants great, snow brilliant and will be back next year.

Ben from United Kingdom
Great resort. I came here in February and I enjoyed it so much I am going back in April. Everything was challenging: the snow park (very fun!!), the wall (do it on a sunny day) and venturing into Chatel, Les Crossets, and Champery. The good thing about it is that there are so many runs that are never busy and I went in half-term. Also the snow was good. Down low it got quite slushy but up high it was amazing. A word of warning: don't go to Morzine, it was so busy and the snow was slushy from the start(what a waste of a day).

James Vizard from United Kingdom
Just came back from a week in Avoriaz. I wish I could have stayed! When we got there we were told by our rep that there had been no snow for about 10 days and that a light shower was forecast but not to get excited because it wouldn't be much, so we set out on our 1st full day and the weather was beautiful clear skies, not too cold not too warm, got a good days boarding in. 2nd day was much the same. Heard a rumour that there would be snow overnight, woke up a 8am looked out the window and.....nothing! Very dissapointed so went back to bed, half an hour got woke up by the sound of my mates screaming...IT'S SNOWING!!! And my god it did! Less than 50m visability! This carried on for 2 and half days eased off for an afternoon then came back with avengence for another day! On the final day the weather was brilliant clear skies again but this time loads of snow, on-piste and off-piste was amazing, never seen so much powder! Second time I have been to Avoriaz and am going to make sure that I do annual visits! Also new parks have been added since the last visit so made sure that I tried them out! What fun! Great skiing for all experienced skiers and boarders! Definite recommendation to anyone!

I went skiing for the first time this April. I had an amazing time and enjoyed every minute of it. Avoriaz is an odd place and not really what I had imagined a ski resort to look like. The snow was excellent, about 2m of it and there is so much skiing you would have to go for about 3 weeks to get it all covered, as you can ski down to the Swiss ski resorts and also the pass will cover Les Gets on the other side of the valley as well. We had 24 hours of constant snowfall when we were there and the next day the skiing was excellent. Really good snow. The only thing I would criticise Avoriaz for, it that it says it is a beginners resort, but there are only 3 green runs in Avoriaz, one down the main street. I would, personally, have said it was a blue, as it was narrow, with a drop on the right hand side. All in all, great holiday though, great people, great scenery, great snow and had a great time.

Andrew Talkes from United Kingdom
Been to Avoriaz three times now and the place never ceases to amaze me. It has by far the best snow in the Alpes (don't belive all the travel guides as this place gets loads of powder)and some great terrain.
Great for a short break or a weeks skiing holiday plenty for all abilities and lots of fun to be found off piste. You must visit Avoriaz and the Portes Du Soleil. For those that like it steep and deep check out the Swiss Wall, a great run in anyone's book!

rob newnes from United Kingdom
Just got back from Avoriaz and had over 2m of snow at the bottom in the last week of the season. My ESF instructor was great, it was my first time boarding and he found the best runs all the time; he even found some off-piste stuff that we could do. It also snowed for over 24 hours straight so the snow was amazing. The resort is also great as there are loads of great places in the evening and with no traffic, apart from horse drawn sleighs, it is great. The resort is perfect for adults and families and looks amazing with skiing from the door.
