Tourism Avoriaz

Avoriaz is a station on the main circuit of one of the largest skiing areas in the world, Les Portes du Soleil, named after a pass between France and Switzerland.

The Avoriaz part of the skiing area consists of about 130 km of piste. The entire Portes du Soleil offers between 650 and 700 km of piste - nearly all of it linked by 220 lifts. The total liftcapacity is close to 250.000 persons/h. making it the largest linked liftnetwork in the world. Avoriaz is directly linked to Swiss resort Les Crosets and french resorts Chatel and Morzine. The Avoriaz-pistes are divided in 4 sectors: The Lindaret, Haut-Forts, Fornet and Super Morzine. The latter beeing mainly connection to Morzine and heavily used by ski-schools and beginners.

The Lindaret is a beautiful valley with a number of red and blue runs plus a single black. In the Lindaret-valley one finds The Stash - a conceptual snowpark developed by Burton and based on ecological principles. It is the only one of its kind i France. There is a number of restaurants and a small village at the bottom of the valley. The Fornet area is a large bowl with bassically skiing everywhere between huge rocks and crevasses. From one of the ridges around the Fornet bowl one can test the famous La Chavanette - also known as The Swiss Wall, one of the steepest pistes in Europe - it is not part of the Avoriaz-system but belongs to neighbouring Swiss resort Les Crosets.

Haut-Forts is the most demanding area with a number of black runs starting at 2.400 and ending at 1.100 meters, some om which are for experts only. The world cup piste - although rated black - is pretty easy though. This area is also ideal for off-piste although caution is advised since this is an area with frequent avalances. From the Haut-Forts topstation it is possible to ski directly back to Avoriaz by red or blue slopes.
