Avoriaz Ski Resort, Morzine

3.8
Avoriaz Ski Resort is called the "Saint Tropez de Neige." The resort touts breathtaking runs: The Lindaret is the most popular, not only for its red and blue runs, but also for its whitewashed beauty. If you’re expert on the slopes, then head over to Haut-Forts with a number of black runs starting at 2,400 m (7,874 ft) and ending at 1,100 m (3,608 ft.) Take a break from the slopes with a conceptual snow park called "The Stash." The park models sustainable development with its snowboard ramps that rise from the drifts as if they grew there. Summer months are still hopping in this winter wonderland. For example, "The Portes du Soleil" is one of the best downhill mountain biking stations in Europe, while the "Aquariaz" is home to over 1,500 tropical plants that surround heated indoor pools and waterfalls. From 1973 to 1993 the resort was the host the Festival International du Film Fantastique d’Avoriaz, a film fest that gathered some of the biggest names in science fiction and horror, including Steven Spielberg, David Cronenberg, and David Lynch. Rare posters advertising the event, and the films it debuted, adorn the walls at the Le Bistro restaurant.  Use our Morzine day trip planner to add Avoriaz Ski Resort and other attractions to your Morzine vacation plans.

  • We spent a week in Avoriaz August fon. The station was completely dead open a restaurant, a bakery. 3 small businesses power in which he had nothing to sell as it closed at the end of the week could not find a slice of ham during the week. We had to go do some shopping in Morzine. It's really a lack of respect for the tourists present. Quite expensive station in winter a trampoline and a bouncy castle 2.5 1/4 hour. The Aquatic Center however a price affordable but soon crowded. Lots of activities for summer golf, hiking, mountain biking, tennis.

  • Upon arrival in the station it's the shock! We are faced with barriers a gatehouse with a lady who asks "where are you going?" suppeur! She opens the gate and said"keep you on this parking lot! ". Already the station is super ugly not welcoming very dark brown wooden buildings at all. We leave this awful station immediately... .. There is so much d other pleasant places in the vicinity.
