Avoriaz, France

Avoriaz ski resort is perched impressively above a dramatic sheer cliff face and is the highest resort within the Portes du Soleil ski area. Its slopes are mainly north facing and suit all grades of skier (skiing down pretty runs through the trees into Les Lindarets is a particular joy.). The village is composed of angular dark, wood clad high-rise buildings which have a distinct style, unlike any other purpose built resort. This non-traditional architecture works better than you might think and looks particularly good from the chairlifts departing from the resort base.

We recommend Avoriaz if like ski convenience. Much of the accommodation offers ski in ski out convenience which makes it particularly popular with families and beginner skiers. The resort has seen some expansion in recent years and now offers some really smart chalet holiday possibilities.
