This car free resort is so well designed that there's rarely a walk involved to reach a lift,and you are the centre of a huge ski area.theres a fair amount of nightlife too.

Combine that with a childrens village and an impressive aqua centre with outdoor jacuzzi and lazy river to sooth the muscles- Avoriaz pretty much caters for every taste

 

 

Good for

  • Families
  • Access to huge portes de Soliel circuit

Apres ski
 
For Families the aqua centre is a must it has,swimming pools,lazy river,outdoor jacuzzi with amazing views, chutes and childrens area and is located right in the centre of the resort.
Several bars are open until late, but there is only one nightclub as such. Le Yeti  is a popular apres-ski bar with live music, where people like to go and relax on the sun terrace.
Shooters is a cool bar that attracts a young crowd.
The Place  has live music. It doesn’t get busy till late.
Le Globe Trotters Cafe  is a popular international pub with live music. It also serves gourmet crepes.
Le Tavaillon bar/pub attracts predominantly young British customers.
The Wild Horse Saloon  has a good bar menu that includes Mexican dishes, and plays live music. Make sure you try one of their Wild Horse Jaegerbombs.
Le Yak is the only real nightclub in Avoriaz – playing house music and open until 5am. The other late-night spots are Le Choucas and Le Fantastique  for its cocktails. If you’re after something a bit more laid back and, well, grown-up, then head to the Hotel Les Dromonts.
The Great Outdoors Music Festival takes place in Avoriaz at the end of March. It features artists of the French and international pop/rock scene, with free concerts which you can access with your lift pass. A new skating rink has opened at the heart of the pedestrianised resort. It’s floodlit until 8pm each day and has a terrace for spectators

From the Telegraph
"One particularly neat trick is that the resort is sunny but most of the local slopes are shady."
Top Avoriaz tips
 
  • Avoriaz is car free, on arrival you drive through/get dropped off at a recption area where you can check in and then take a snow taxi -horse drawn or electric, to your accommodation.Self drivers leave their cars at the huge exterior car park close to the reception centre.
  • For lunch get out of the resort centre to pay less for better food!
  • The quickest way to Switzerland is via the The Mossettes chairlift which goes all the way to the frontier.
  • To cover the miles follow the well marked Portes De Soliel circuit
  • For variety head to Les Gets for the day,you will need to cross through the pretty town of Morzine on the way.
