Why is ski to the door so important?

You are not tied to leaving a chalet in the morning at a set time to take courtesy transport and when you have finished skiing you do not have to wait for others who are late. No queuing for a ski bus to get to the slopes in the morning and no long walks. It's skis off and straight to a comfy sofa for afternoon tea or a well earned drink in the bar or the hot tub!

This photo was taken just after snowfall, and before the hot tub has been dug out! You can ski straight to here.

This is the view of the piste from the chalet Au Coin du Feu, looking at the bottom of the 'home run' from Avoriaz. You can arrive here from the piste or cut across slightly higher and ski right to the hut tub. All our chalets are located on the same piste!

The drag lift you can see takes you to the gentle ski path which goes straight to the cable car, which is just out of sight, so you don't even have the short walk to the main cable car which links Morzine and Avoriaz.

The bottom of the piste here is also great for beginners and a good warm up the day you arrive, as the drag lift is free and you can get your legs back with a few nice easy runs on the day you arrive. Our own children often build jumps here so you can have a bit of fun as well.
