The Trip Advisor Ski Index 2011 / 2012

When the 2012 Ski Index was released this week, Yodel magazine were dead keen to see where the resorts of Morzine, Les Gets and Avoriaz featured...

So imagine our surprise to find neither Morzine OR Les Gets featured on the Trip Advisor list! All the other regulars, such as Chamonix, Val Thorens and Meribel are there...

Avoriaz does made an entry though, holding up a very respectable 13th place. Considering it's height and guaranteed snow, the ski-in, ski-out resort offers amazing value for money, even if it's not the cheapest on the list.

We've applied Trip Advisor's very own criteria to the list to place Morzine and Les Gets in their rightful places ourselves. And here you have it! Morzine's in at 3rd place and Les Gets at 4th place! We've also asked Trip Advisor to explain the absence of Morzine and Les Gets on their own index and we just want to make it clear - Yodel has modified the table below to include Morzine and Les Gets ourselves. The original Trip Advisor table didn't include the two resorts.
