Whenever you choose to go, Avoriaz welcomes you to somewhere different from other resorts. With its striking timber buildings blending into the cliffs, its car-free streets, and one of the world’s largest and most exciting ski areas on the doorstep, the resort has made sure it stands out from the rest.
The opening of the tropical Aquariaz water park this year has made it more fun-filled and family-friendly than ever, and the sheer range of on and off-slope activities on offer means that you’ll never get bored – whether you’re 5 or 85.
This Christmas though, the streets of Avoriaz are coming to life for an enchanting light extravaganza. From the 23rd to the 28th December 2012, you can watch dazzling firework displays, see paper lanterns disappearing up towards the stars and coloured lights flickering over the snow. Sip mulled wine while you watch the mountain glow for the beautiful torchlit descent and join in with family festivities with the smell of roasted chestnuts in the air.
The fairytale Christmas programme will also feature live music, dancing, ice skating, and a very special celebration for the arrival of Father Christmas – so everything you need for the perfect winter wonderland holiday.
If you’re looking for an unforgettable Christmas this year, look no further than Avoriaz – where the taxis are sleighs and the town buzzes with something otherworldly you just don’t quite understand until you get there.
