The Worlds Best Snowboarding - Avoriaz


Avoriaz is one of the snowboarding resorts included in the massive Portes du Soleil ski area that straddles the border between France and Switzerland. Portes du Soleil is perhaps the largest linked lift system in the world, and Avoriaz is its definitive snowboarding capital. In addition to providing access to an insanely big freeriding area, Avoriaz also boasts a number of world-class terrain parks.

"It's the kind of place that was made for skiing and boarding ! Fans of freeride will love the snowcross runs while anyone hoping for some big air will get plenty of it in the resort's many maintained parks." (Portesdusoleil.com) Avoriaz is also known for being more reasonably priced than many of its competitors in the region.
