Portes du Soleil is one of the largest ski areas in the world, with 650km of piste connecting 12 resorts in France and Switzerland, including Morzine, Avoriaz, Les Gets, Saint Jean d’Aulps and beyond, all under one ski pass.
It has one of the shortest transfers from Geneva at around an hour, so you can catch a morning flight from the UK and swish down the slopes by lunchtime.
There are pistes for all abilities and feature extensive off-piste facilities and snow parks, including ‘The Stash’.
Avoriaz, the highest resort at 1800 meters, has a big snow park and a half pipe.
It is also possible to ski an extensive circular tour of the Portes du Soleil in a day. And then there’s the “Swiss Wall” in Chavanettes to concur, perhaps the most notorious run within the Portes du Soleil borders. Night skiing is also available on Pleney slope in Morzine.
