Winter 19 Avoriaz Highlights
The Portes du Soleil’s highest resort gets better and better each winter. Here’s some of Morzine Source Magazine's favourite unmissable developments in Avoriaz, fresh for Winter 19.
LAUNCHING LE ROC
Bowling is a big deal in Avoriaz and we’ve been massive fans of the retro bowling lanes and old school arcade games at Le Bowling for many years. This year, courtesy of its new owners, Le Bowling is getting a massive face-lift in two distinct stages. Le Lounge Roc is a brand new lounge bar complete with a VIP area, a DJ booth, cigar club and cocktail and tapas menu, the space incorporates the buildings adjacent and connected to Le Bowling to create one huge, swanky venue. The original bowling alley will remain untouched for this winter season, becoming Le Strike Roc after a huge refurbishment, commencing in April 2019. The new owners have promised us even more bowling lanes, which is very good news indeed! Follow the progress at facebook.com/lerocavoriaz
As you’ll discover on page 128 of our current issue, the construction of Avoriaz’s Village Igloois a carefully planned mission each winter and this year you’ll have three excellent reasons to pay a visit. The Ice Bar, as the name suggests, is entirely made from snow and ice; it’s the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee or an après drink before skiing back into the resort at the end of your day. The restaurant serves a selection of local cheeses and meats on Wednesday and Saturday evenings from 7pm (reservations necessary). You also have the opportunity to stay overnight at the Igloo Hotel, too! For details head to village-igloo-avoriaz.com
