For the second year in a row Avoriaz opens its doors early this coming weekend, 2nd & 3rd December 2023. Access is via the Prodains cable car (with free parking at the foot of the cable car), and skiing available in the Arare & Chavanette sectors.
After recent good snowfall throughout November, and ski-touring being popular for the last couple of weeks, we've been waiting with baited breath for the news whether Avoriaz would officially open early, and we can thank thew snow gods that it has!

Snowy Landscape in Avoriaz and Portes Du Soleil
Morzine town gets early December snow
Avoriaz isn't the only town receiving snow at the moment, with big dumps of snow falling in the town of Morzine itself! Sitting lower than Avoriaz, Morzine typically receives less snow throughout the season, and with only the bottom of Le Stade, Retour des Nants and Piste B ending in Morzine it doesn't need as much snow in the town itself for the skiing to still be great, but snow-covered fences and crunching underfoot fills everyone with giddy excitement, even locals who have seen it all before!
