Avoriaz knocked the spots off every other European ski resort last winter. It had more snow across the entire winter season than any other resort, and even during the hot steamy summer months, snow still glistened on its peaks. Avoriaz was also holds the prestigious title of ‘Best Family Ski Resort’, awarded at the World Snow Awards in London. Which means we’re not biased at all when we say, it’s well deserved. Families of skiers want for nothing in Avoriaz, and because it’s purpose built and car free, you can ski in and out of every hotel, chalet and apartment block in the resort.
