The Skiing

The Portes du Soleil has been one of the biggest players in world skiing for the last 40 years. With 12 linked resorts on either side of the Swiss – French border: Abondance, Avoriaz, Champoussin, Morgins, Chatel, Les Crosets, La Chapelle d’ Abondance, Les Gets, Montriond, Morzine, Champéry, Torgon.
This genuine Natural Powder Reserve at the heart of the Alps offers skiers unspoilt surroundings, mountain lifts that keep a low profile amid snowbound forests, pistes that wind their way through snow meadows, spruces and mountain chalets that have stood the test of time.
