But it has a good snow record; several seasons ago it got the most in the Alps — a staggering And considering their altitude, the north-west-facing slopes below Hauts Forts and Chavanette hold snow well — much better than over the border on the sunnier Swiss slopes.
But when snow is sparse, the smooth, grassy slopes of lower Morzine-Les Gets can deliver better conditions than the rocky ones around Avoriaz. For experts Tough terrain is scattered about.
Timid types not worried about pretty surroundings need not leave the Avoriaz sector: there are quiet and scenic blues to Les Prodains and at Super-Morzine. And the Arare and Chavanette sectors are gentle, spacious, above-the-treeline bowls. The Lindarets area is also easy, with pretty runs through the trees, but there are some long flat sections.
Better intermediates have virtually the whole area at their disposal. For beginners The nursery slopes seem small in relation to the size of the resort, but appear to cope.

Avoriaz as a resort is the brainchild of Gerard Bremont, the son of a leading French industrialist whom Jean Vuarnet asked to invest in the project. At a later stage other former elite skiers such as Isabelle Mir and Annie Famose got involved - the latter today running the famous ski-kindergarten.

In the Lindaret-valley one finds The Stash  - a conceptual snowpark developed by Burton and based on ecological principles. It is the only one of its kind in France.
There are a number of restaurants and a small village at the bottom of the valley. The Fornet area is a large bowl with basically skiing everywhere between huge rocks and crevasses.
From one of the ridges around the Fornet bowl one can test the famous La Chavanette - also known as The Swiss Wall, one of the steepest pistes in Europe - it is not part of the Avoriaz-system but belongs to neighbouring Swiss resort Les Crosets.

These runs are marked and patrolled but ungroomed. The slopes tend to keep their snow well as many are north facing and therefore retain a great base layer all season.
