Avoriaz is called the "Saint Tropez de Neige." The resort touts breathtaking runs: The Lindaret is the most popular, not only for its red and blue runs, but also for its whitewashed beauty. If you’re expert on the slopes, then head over to Haut-Forts with a number of black runs starting at 2,400 m (7,874 ft) and ending at 1,100 m (3,608 ft.) Take a break from the slopes with a conceptual snow park called "The Stash." The park models sustainable development with its snowboard ramps that rise from the drifts as if they grew there. Summer months are still hopping in this winter wonderland. For example, "The Portes du Soleil" is one of the best downhill mountain biking stations in Europe, while the "Aquariaz" is home to over 1,500 tropical plants that surround heated indoor pools and waterfalls. From 1973 to 1993 the resort was the host the Festival International du Film Fantastique d’Avoriaz, a film fest that gathered some of the biggest names in science fiction and horror, including Steven Spielberg, David Cronenberg, and David Lynch. Rare posters advertising the event, and the films it debuted, adorn the walls at the Le Bistro restaurant.  To visit Avoriaz and get the most from your holiday in Morzine, create itinerary details personal to you using our Morzine day trip planner.
