Find out more about Portes du Soleil and what it has to offer

Portes du Soleil ski area is the largest ski region in Europe, situated between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc in the Northern Alps.  Resorts can be found between 800 meters and 1800 meters above sea level with the highest ski runs at 2400 meters in Avoriaz.

The ski area is made up of 14 villages that cross France and Switzerland, they make up the Portes du Soleil ski circuit which can be skied in either direction and can be skied in a day.

 Some may say that the Portes du Soleil area is low and receives poor snow, but many disagree. Its closeness to Lake Geneva helps with snow clouds forming and falling as snow over the area first before hitting other resorts such as Chamonix or Verbier. The fact that most of the skiing happens over pasture land means that only around 20- 30 centimetres of snow  are needed to cover the pistes,  some of the high resorts in  France need over a meter to cover the rocks.  Also as the area is geographically positioned in the north of the Alps it tends to be slightly colder which helps.

Most of the villages within the Portes du Soleil are traditional farming villages and dual resorts which means they see tourists pretty much all year round.  Avoriaz is at the heart of the ski area and probably the most known of all the resorts, purpose built in the sixties, it has won numerous awards, blending in with the cliff face that rises from Morzine.

Skiing is for everyone here, you will find greens to blacks, and some very good off piste. Areas like the Happy Valley in Chatel offer a natural playground for snowboarders and the Couloirs above Les Crosets offering some challenging skiing.

For those driving Portes du Soleil can be reached in about 8-9 hours from the UK, one of easiest regions to be reached in the whole of the French Alps. Also transfers from Geneva airport are anything between 1 hr – 1hr 30 minutes making this a great week end destination.

Accommodation varies from hotels to self-catered ski chalets. You will find a wide selection of catered ski chalets providing amazing winter ski holidays. If you are looking for traditional villages with none of the concrete buildings and skiing to match then you must try Portes du Soleil.
