Avoriaz Winter 2017/18Perched above Morzine on the Ardoisiere cliffs sits Avoriaz. For the uninitiated, Avoriaz is a purpose built ski resort built in the 1960s. Its neo-rustic design is an attempt to hide it from those looking up from Morzine, camouflaging it against its surroundings. For those familiar to Avoriaz, aesthetically speaking you either love it or hate it. However you look at Avoriaz, it has something for every skier and snowboarder.
Although our chalets and apartments are based in Morzine, we spend a lot of time in Avoriaz because it has a lot to offer. We like its fantastic snow-sure pistes in addition to its links to Chatel and Switzerland. And with all the different ways you can get to Avoriaz it is very accessible from Morzine.
New for Winter 2017/2018Morzine and Avoriaz are seeing some great developments for winter 2017/18, as you may have seen from our previous blog. Avoriaz has now released full details of what they have in store for us on and off the pistes this winter.
Avoriaz is providing snowmobiles with quiet and efficient electric motors for hire. Unfortunately these are only available for kids from the age of 5 (adults will have to make do with the real thing). Grab yourself a hot chocolate or vin chaud and watch the kids razz around a closed off and supervised course.
