Avoriaz Ski Resort, Morzine
(3.9/5 based on 700 reviews on the web)
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.  Put Avoriaz Ski Resort at the forefront of your travel plans using our Morzine trip builder.

  • Perfect for all levels of ability. Ski in/ski out location. Great in the summer, plus out of season. 
  • We have been coming here for years and have a private apartment. You can find perfect skiing in the winter and thanks to the vast area the whole day skiing without 2 x the same lift or ski information. You can ski right from your apartment. The village is car-free, now all geared to tourists (is planned developed). There a a fairly new subtropical swimming paradise and even a bowling alley and a cinema. Also in the summer it is a fine village for hiking, mountain biking and golf. For beginner and advanced skiers.

  • This was a really great trip. The event apres-ski parties were the best way to end a day of skiing and to transition to the nights parties that were next on the agenda. The services provided were good...  more »
