Avoriaz - France's Snowiest Ski Resort

The geeks among us just love dissecting those detailed snow reports at the end of each winter season. If you’re interested in which ski resort offers the best snow for your next ski holiday, you’re in luck. We’ve simplified things for you.

For the last five years, Avoriaz has ended the season as France's snowiest ski resort . It's very much appreciated that you can ski in Avoriaz, you can not ski anywhere in the French Alps, such is the volume of snowfall in our resort each winter. As the Portes du Soleil's highest ski resort with a base station at 1800m, nature made our peaks and slopes. 

Winter typically arrives in France's snowiest ski resort in mid-November, but we just saw the peaks around Avoriaz can turn white at any time during the year. This keeps us excited for winter and reminiscing about the eight meters of long snow we've seen in Avoriaz in recent years. As an expert snow site  agrees, 'At resort level, where else comes close to Avoriaz' and that's a particularly good point for those of you with children.

Snowfall records show us that Avoriaz almost always has the best snowflakes in Europe . The smallest of skiers head to the Children's Village, which is 100% snow-sure throughout the season, while being easily accessible from the center of Avoriaz and are groomed to perfection.
