Charming little village and they are set to re-open the lifts for the 2009/10 season!
Good resort with excellent freeriding and carving areas. The main problem with Avoriaz are the crowds and long lift queues.
Fast and easy access to the Portes du Soleil
Quiet village with some pretty decent terrain, but a bit too far from the main action in the area
Good for families or a piste-ticking boarder, with its quiet nightlife and connection to Portes de Soleil. Great starting point for a road trip or a day board from Geneva.
Big linked area.
small and quiet village but home to the excellent SuperPark and some reasonable freeriding
Great for beginners, intermediates and families. Linked to the huge Portes du Soliel and its 650km of pistes. However it lacks challenging terrain and is a village suited to the family not the party animal.
Small, quiet and you need a bus. But it is good access when you get there.
an atractive, family oriented resort but with little to satisfy hardcore riders
Low, lively & part of the huge Portes du Soleil
Quiet and uncrowded slopes with a quaint french village, but there's nothing here for any adventurous snowboarder
less well known village but still want good access to the Portes Du Soleil area. Quiet slopes, a few good runs, a peaceful, family vibe but the snowboarding itself doesn't stand out.
