Unique ski resort
Avoriaz is an entirely car-free ski resort and you can wear your skis anywhere.
Here you can forget about pavements – walk through the snow for the duration of your stay. On the snow-covered roads skiers rub shoulders with pedestrians and horse-drawn sleds. A paradise for children and a unique, magical and extraordinary atmosphere all-year-round.
At Avoriaz, there’s no need to ask if your apartment is Ski-in/Ski-out, everything is accessible on skis – even the bakery.
If you are in a hurry you can take a short cut or use a lift, to cross the resort in under 15 minutes.
— Good Tips —
Make sure you have shoes suitable for walking in the snow, and bring a holdall instead of a suitcase with wheels that can’t be pulled through the snow!
sleds and snowcats
At Avoriaz, taxis are replaced by sleds and snowcats that will take you wherever you want to go in the resort.
Since it first opened, jingling bells have been an integral part of the magic of Avoriaz and there are no less than 20 drivers and 100 horses who roam the resort daily.
