The Skiing

The Portes du Soleil ski area covers 13 ski resorts across France and Switzerland and with 650 kilometres of pistes linked by over 200 ski lifts, is widely regarded as the largest connected ski area in the world.  The extensive and varied landscape is perfect for all levels of skiers and snowboarders and has beautiful groomed pistes and off piste runs through the trees and well above the tree line. A Portes du Soleil piste map is available to download here.


The nursery slopes are nearby for beginners.  Intermediate skiers can ski from resort to resort without skiing the same run twice.  For the advanced skier there are numerous red and black runs, extensive off piste, the World Cup downhill run and for the boldest there is the famous ‘Swiss Wall’ descent from France to Switzerland.  Blue and red runs also offer a more gentle route between the 2 countries. 


Your ski pass covers towns including Avoriaz, Les Gets, Chatel, Champery, Les Crosets, Morgins and Champoussin.  You can ski the Portes du Soleil circuit which covers these towns on a 65 kilometre adventure which takes all day.


Snowboarders and skiers will find numerous jump parks and half pipes throughout the area and in Avoriaz you can practice your jumps tricks into an airbag.  There is 76 kilometres of cross country skiing and for ski touring we can organise guides to take you away from the ski areas into the wilds on randonnee skis with skins so you can ski ‘uphill’ to find untouched powder trails. 


Ski school can be arranged with either French or British ski schools for group or private lessons. For more information on our Chilly Powder ski school please click here.
