Mountain top resort
Avoriaz is the highest resort of the Portes du Soleil region. The village itself is at 1,800m with peaks towering up to 2,400m around it. The whole resort is car free and ski-in ski-out. There are a number of excellent snowshoeing itineraries starting or ending in Avoriaz which quickly escape from the pistes and the skiiers leaving the snowshoer in blissful isolation.
