It was voted the Best Family Resort 2013 at the World Snow Awards and Avoriaz is very proud of its family friendly facilities, which include the centrally located Village des Enfants, Kids Parkway and Lil’Stash snowparks exclusively for children, and the water fun park Aquariaz.
The long awaited and eagerly anticipated Prodains Express 3S cable car opened on the very last weekend of last winter for testing. With the capacity to carry up to 2,400 skiers and snowboarders an hour in 12 cabins, the new lift vastly improves the link between Morzine and Avoriaz this winter.
Also new in Avoriaz this winter is the Freestyle Park, where riders scan their lift pass and complete a run through the La Chapelle snowpark in front of three cameras before watching themselves on a big screen. An SMS link to their video is sent to their smartphone so it can be shared on Facebook and Twitter.
The Avoriaz Ski Safari is a new off-piste skiing programme offered by the Avoriaz branch of the ESF. Accompanied by a qualified instructor, groups of up to four experienced skiers or snowboarders are taken off into the wilderness to discover untouched links between valleys across the Portes du Soleil.
