All ski levels should experience the unique snowcross zones, which offer all the thrills of unpisted slopes in a safe, patrolled setting: the black snowcross zones of Crozats and La Frontaliere; red snowcross zones of Les Brouchaux and Pschott; and the blue La Combe des Marmottes snowcross - a playful area of small undulations, ideal for families.
While you’ve still got your skis on take the kids ski joering – holding long reigns attached to a horse’s bridle, you’re pulled along on skis behind it. This fun activity is suitable for all ages, but younger children should be accompanied by an adult.
In 2012, Avoriaz opened Europe’s highest waterpark: the €200m Aquariaz, offering year-round fun for families. It’s a great après-ski venue for those who want to warm up and relax tired muscles after a day on the slopes. With floor-to-ceiling windows, it offers great views of the Alps. Highlights include the aqua half-pipe or ‘slidewinder’, which you ride solo or in pairs in a single or double rubber tube; a waterplay area for younger children including an aquatic see-saw; and fairly demanding climbing wall alongside one of the pools.
