Our Avoriaz resort guide to one of the most distinctive Alpine ski resorts you will probably ever visit; perched high at 1800m it looks down over Morzine and beyond. Situated at the centre of the huge Portes du Soleil ski area, it features door step skiing and rivals the Three Valleys for the title of “the largest ski area in Europe”.
The region encompasses the best of the Alps from quiet little hamlets to bustling resorts, picturesque rusticana to lively nightlife and extreme sports. Avoriaz is probably the most distinctive of the Portes du Soleil ski stations, due to its futuristic design and dramatic cliff top location.

English speaking instructors, Avoriaz (Morzine & Les Gets). We use fun and effective easy-learning techniques to teach you how to “get the most without using the most” from your skiing and boarding lessons.
Glenn Wellesley, Director created Ski With Ease Ski School and our teaching methods. His technique came as a result of a ski racing injury when he lost the physical strength to ski at race-level using orthodox methods so, he researched the latest techniques in bio-mechanics and sports science to find the easiest, most energy-efficient ways to ski. His expertise developed lessons specifically for nervous skiers as well as basing all of our lessons around having fun! It’s our 6th season and our team has now grown to include Board With Ease Snowboard School.
