AVORIAZ 1800 Sanitary measures



As mountain enthusiasts we are committed to protecting this environment and all those who come to enjoy the mountain experience.

The mountains have always been a sanctuary, one of nature’s bubbles where that breath of fresh air takes on a whole new meaning. Safety is also among our fundamental values, because we want everybody to be able to enjoy this protected habitat, this unspoilt wilderness. Today, more than ever, we aim to do everything we can to keep our residents and visitors safe and in good health.

This is why Avoriaz 1800 has teamed up with Véritas, an independent body, to set up a quality label that guarantees strict compliance with sanitary procedures. This seal of approval was awarded for the first time in June and is set to be extended into the winter season and across the entire Portes du Soleil ski area.

Most of our accommodation providers are following this initiative and making your holiday planning easier by allowing greater flexibility in their terms of cancellation. They promise to refund all sums paid in the event of new government decisions relating to Covid-19 that may prevent you from travelling.



Safe Guard

Avoriaz 1800 is the very first French resort to display the SafeGuard quality label awarded by Veritas France. It guarantees that, as a tourism entity, Avoriaz 1800 properly complies with the health and hygiene protocols set out by the French government and the WHO. Besides guaranteeing that prevention procedures are followed, the Safeguard label also serves as a guarantee that resort staff have received specific training.

Through this approach, backed up by strict procedures and discreet audits, we aim for transparency vis-à-vis our visitors in order to reassure them about sanitary measures implemented at the resort.


To simplify your holiday arrangements for winter 2020/21, most of the Avoriaz 1800 accommodation providers promise to refund all sums paid in the event of a Covid-19-related government decision that may prevent you from travelling to the resort.
