This is an obvious one to chose, but it just looks so fantastic. The futuristic looking town bit is built into the side of the mountain and the runs cover a huge selection of terrain. The lifts actually go through the town and I stayed in a block of flats I could almost board straight out of. There are a couple of good parks, I like Avoriaz Fun Park and Les Croset Park the best because they’ve got the most space, and some good moguls at The Wall. I’m told the moguls are a bit unreliable, sometimes they’re well kept sometimes they’re useless and scrappy, but they were fantastic for me. I would recommend you book early because around Christmas it’s really busy.
