Avoriaz Resort & Transfer Guide

The famous French ski resort of Avoriaz occupies a favourable position on the south-facing plateau. This popular ski resort is located in the heart of the Port du Soleil ski area, which provides access to 650 km of ski slopes in the region. Also, Avoriaz is among the ten most snowy European resorts - the snow cover here is guaranteed from December to April, and the average snow height is 8 m per season. This is a resort without cars, with "clean" electric heating, "skiing from the door" and the most modern infrastructure. Here, the pristine Alpine nature, reminiscent of landscapes from fantastic films, and great opportunities for skiing and snowboarding, for active and family holidays.

Ski Resort Location

In 1960, on the former high-mountain pasture, an excellent base for winter sports was built, perfectly blending into the local landscape. In the following years, this mysterious landscape attracted to filmmakers, and film festivals were held here.

Situated between steep cliffs and gentle slopes, as well as between France and Switzerland, at an altitude of 1800 m, Avoriaz, thanks to its predominantly wooden architecture, perfectly harmonizes with its surroundings. As the top and centre of Port du Soleil, the Avoriaz base has become an ideal starting point for the world's largest international combined ski area, with 14 ski resorts and 283 trails.
