From Avoriaz, take the ' Lac Intrets' chairlift:
If you are crazy or really good, "la Combe du Machon" is for you... This is similar to "Le Mur d'Avoriaz": steep and full of bumps...
Starting from the same point, much easier and much more fun imho is " La Coupe du Monde"...
A Peaceful Mountain Top
We first visited Avoriaz in the summer of 2002, and were fascinated by this car free ghost town. We thought it would be fun to see what it was like in Winter, its peak time. So in January 2005 we got the opportunity.
A 'modern' ski resort, build over the last 40 years. Not a 'quaint' alpine village, but a well designed small town with striking architecture.
After a 2 hour drive from Geneva AIrport, ( the last 20 minutes a relentless climb upwards through snow), until we arrived in Avoriaz. The Taxi unloaded us and our luggage, at the furtherest point into the village that cars are allowed, and we transfered to a One Horse Open sleigh to our home for the next week.
A large ski area, with a 'ski-in ski out'- holiday base, suberb food, sun, great snow, views and fascinating architecture makes this a great place for a ski holiday. The biggest drawback is that most of the accomadation is self catering. I certainly prefer to be looked after when on my holidays, especially after such an energetic day as happens when you go sking.
