    AVORIAZ  VILLAGE

    Favorite thing: Avoriaz is located at an elevation of 1800 m meters , and there are over 40 lifts associated with the Avoriaz area.

    Although being a low resort it is a super place for powder skiing . The terrain is easy- intermediate which means most of the skiers do not venture into fresh powder snow . Thus the powder skiing can last all day and into the next.

    Fondest memory: Avoriaz is one of the best ski-in/ ski-out villages . We only had to take three steps outside the hotel door to put on skiis and push off. down the mountain.

    AVORIAZ AND PORTES DU SOLEIL

    by RACCOON1 Updated Nov 6, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Avoriaz lift system is interconnected with 200 lifts of the Portes du Soliel Complex.

    Once you get your directions straight you can ski to the Swiss villages of Champery, Morgins and Les Crosets or the French villages of Chatel , Morzine and Les Gets for lunch or a glass of wine .

    Fondest memory: Most of the descents do not have flat areas , so there is very little walking or polling.

    Descents are generally short but circulation is good.

    For advanced skiers , if there is no powder , there is descent called The Wall.
    The Wall is , what you might say, "difficult to navigate " at the beginning .
