One of the most distinctive ski resort in the Alps, Avoriaz is perched high up on a snow shelf looking down over a cliff edge towards Morzine and beyond.
There are no cars, making for a calm, safe atmosphere. Lifts are very close to the accommodation, which varies greatly depending on the age of the building. There are about 25 restaurants (some good, but pricey) and reasonable nightlife. The ski school is excellent. Children are well catered for, including a very good kids' village and Geneva is only two hours away.
Overall, Avoriaz ski holidays are blessed with a number of qualities to establish the resort's excellent reputation in the region. It's good for its snow, its challenging skiing and the fact that you can always ski to your door.
