Varying piste and offpist range for all levels. Good snow & sunshine. Excellent flight & transfer possibilities. Varied accommodation from lgh to hotel. Good other options like swimming, bowling and excursions. A town = large lift system Portes des Soleil with journeys in France and Switzerland. Car free and idyllic. Great restaurants from crepes to stars.
Best accommodation original since 1967, Hotel des Dromonts.

Skiing like that, quite short slopes and you can go around a lot to get variety.
The best part is a charming car-free city where all staff were very nice even in restaurants despite bad French.
The worst are the lift queues, have never been more in the elevator queue than here, and in principle they are forced to go down to these lift queues again as the Avoriaz system does not go so high above the village.
Nice place with my heartfelt but do you focus on skiing, go somewhere else?

Great ski resort where everything is on the slopes. The skis go on in the morning and are barely taken off all day. large selection of slopes but also with a good offpiste if the snow allows!
Have been there twice in the last two years February-March, 2015 we had stubborn sun and focused mainly on the ride in the piste. In 2016 we felt that we did not explore him all the areas surrounding Avoriaz so we once again went there. The whole area is magical as you can ski around the whole village and should this be demanding, there is the imaginative possibility of horse and wagon.
The area at Switzerland and the "wall " has fantastic offpiste. 2h with the skis on the back and you have fantastic pillows and good slopes. Maybe not for the extreme skier but excellent for those who want to start their offpiste experience somewhere!

Easy-going ski area. It's big as a thousand and the variation is good. Just plus, really, except that the whole area is quite low so there is a risk of bad snow.

Very cute "resort " with horse and sleigh as prime transportation, clear Disney feeling. Plenty of good food and drink.

Have not tested the off-piste here but it seems to be scratched, it seems to be a piste that applies.

I would say that you go here for the village, not for skiing. But I can be wrong, we had bad snow and were tired of my legs

Saying just one thing: Ski-in ski-out, is there anything better !? Forget about buses and trains, go skiing instead ... Avoriaz is completely car free (here are some road vehicles and horse and sled that handle transport. Therefore you can ski everywhere and that was also the village built in the mid 60's at approx. 1800 meters altitude. Morzine, which is the original village, is located further down the valley where you easily get through the system, why you would like to do that ?.
The slopes are varied and there are slopes for everyone and some parks. Off-piste it is everywhere outside the piste and allowed to go. The system is big and it's very close and easy to cross the Switzerland side, where one of the world's five steepest slopes is also; "Wall ".
Avoriaz is nothing for the extreme skier, but there are better places, but maybe not in the Alps. Then go to the US or Japan instead.
The village is not a party town but there is a quite wide variety of restaurants with different orientation and price ranges. As in many places in the Aplerna, the hotel rooms are relatively small but ok. In Avoriaz, the hotel is mostly Lgh hotel.
When we were there Feb / March 2012, we also had incredible weather with clear blue sky, wind and sun just the whole week, but no news ... :(
Will definitely be back sometime, but maybe not next year ...

Awesome place may say, be there by 2008, and the place is sick. Good parks, trore is 2st + a park made of natural materials!
Nice place to live too, as previous reviewers said, you live in the hill, step outside the door and stand on the hill ready to go!

The area itself is absolutely wonderful, huge ski system. It was around 30 degrees all week when I was there so you could go in shorts and t-shirts, really beautiful. However, the snow was a little smelly in the heat. The apartment was not the best, you could not close the oven, the lights were broken, some things hung out and there was a hole right into the wall behind the phone. At the same time there was a brand new dishwasher that we were very proud of :). But you just have to sleep and eat in the apartment so there were no major problems. lived in alpage 2. Minus for nightlife and the apartment, plus plus for dishwasher and skiing. It may be 5/5.
