Best tips for Avoriaz - Les Gets/ Châtel/ Morgins/ Champéry/Morzine (Les Portes du Soleil)

Avoriaz is a purpose-built resort perched on a sloping shelf above a dramatic high cliff a few km from lower, long-established Morzine. It is entirely free of wheeled traffic; cars are left in paid-for parks at the edge of the village Рbook a space underground to avoid a chaotic departure if it snows. Avoriaz is on the main lift circuit of the Portes du Soleil Рfor an overview, look at our separate chapter. It has links to Ch̢tel in one direction and to Champ̩ry in Switzerland in the other. It is linked by gondola (but not by piste) to Morzine, which shares a separate area of slopes with Les Gets. All four of these linked resorts get their own chapters, and are covered by the Portes du Soleil pass. The hamlets of Ardent and Les Prodains are on the fringes of the Avoriaz ski area with lifts into it. Both are described in this chapter. Car trips to Flaine and Chamonix are possible.

PROS:

  • Good position on the Portes du Soleil circuit, and good local slopes
  • Very successful design – car-free, with ski-in/ski-out lodgings
  • Good children’s facilities
  • Snow generally good and sometimes superb, but …

CONS:

  • Low altitudes and exposure to westerlies mean some risk of poor snow lower down, and rain
  • Architecture doesn’t suit everyone
  • Lacks a slick bag-delivery system
  • Can get very crowded at weekends
