Full review

Walking about without cars, just horse and sleighs, also motorised carriers for getting heavy luggage from the cale car to the apartment, after that plain walking.Not a very big resort but has everything one needs. Restaurants, bars, shops concentrated mainly in one area.There is a variety of supermarkets, so there is a choice. People are friendly and helpful,. We are situated in an apartment building facing the slopes, about 50m from the commercial centre, but on the far side so have zero noise. lifts plentiful, long pleasant runs without queues, longest wait maybe 5 minutes.Mainly blue runs, sometimes seem worse than the red ones. Very few black runs, but all in all, nothing that cannot be skiiid.First time we've experienced a viilage of about 20 restaurants concentrated at the top of the chair lifts.No shortage of variet in runs as well as in eats! Lift pass includes the cable car, so a trip down to Morzine is a pleasant diversion. The best part that Avoriaz is only 2 hours from Geneva, so cheaper, quicker and easier to reach
