Set above the clouds at 1,800 metres (5,900 ft), the archetypally Alpine resort of Avoriaz clings to the snowy mountainside and steep cliffs. This white paradise stretches right down into the busy little streets where horsedrawn sleighs are the favoourite local transport. The Resort boasts a typically Alpine decor with its traditional wooden chalets and warm and cosy atmosphere. The Portes du Soleil ski domain runs through the heart of this pedestrian resort and stretches right into Switzerland. Its pistes welcome families and skiers of all standards.
