Full review

We have been to Avoriaz a few times in the past years, and apart from a few new buildings, remains the same.Most importantly there are no vehicles in the resort, all transportation by foot, horse and cart, or on change over day there are snow cats to assist with luggage etc . The commercial area is concentrated mainly in a strip of about 250 metres. There are other areas, all within a couple minutes walk. The unique feature is that one can go to the highest point by the use of public elevators, which means getting around even easier.. The resort is truly ski-out/ski-in. Access to the chair lifts is possible by skiing from ones residence, the same is true of the return. Snow is always plentiful and the runs are extremely well groomed. If there is one criticism, that is that residents don't always think about others in the buildings and many a time, late at night there is loud talking in the passages, or walking heavily with ski boots. There are ample bars, restaurants and 3 supermarkets, which, to us, is ample. No shop is more than a few minutes walk from ones apartment. We wlll return!
