This Season's European Gay Ski Week will be hosted by the amazing resort of Avoriaz, March 19th - 26th 2016. This is one of the most distinctive Alpine ski resorts you will probably ever visit; perched high on a rocky promontory it looks down over the cliff edge towards Morzine and beyond. Situated at the centre of the Portes du Soleil it falls within the Chablais region of the Haute-Savoie.
The Financial Times (weathertoski.co.uk) has ranked Avoriaz the number 1 snowiest ski resort in France in 2013, with an average of 8 metres’ snowfall per winter. This gives EGSW 2 metres more average snowfall, than any other Gay Ski Week in Europe!
Avoriaz is a ski-in, ski-out resort where no cars are allowed. Fully integrated into the surrounding ski area, Avoriaz is unique with its snowy pedestrianised streets, the taxis are horse-drawn sleighs, the streets are ski runs and all accommodation has direct access to the slopes.
With Geneva International Airport ONLY 1.5hr away from Avoriaz, and TGV stations equally close, EGSW 2016 will be easily accessible for guests from far and wide around the world!
