Avoriaz great snowfall

How does the snow in Avoriaz rate compared to other big resorts? A LOT better is the answer!

April 5th, 2013 News

The start of this season in Avoriaz has been unbelievable for snow and as we started 2012, it was the best snow on New Year’s week since the turn of the century! So, we thought we’d compare it to 4 of Europe’s other big resorts (Meribel, Val d’Isere, Kitzbuhel and Zermatt) and the answer was better than we could have possibly imagined…

Avoriaz currently has 290cm of snow on the top slopes, which is 55cm more than 2nd placed Meribel. On the lower slopes, Avoriaz has a whopping 250cm which is not far off TRIPLE the amount Kitzbuhel has! It has also had more snow in the last 7 days than any of the others and there is another 10cm on it’s way as well. With the temperature staying nice and low, that snow isn’t going anywhere either.

So how come Avoriaz has 1 of the best snow records in the Alps when it is perched right on the northern edge I hear you ask!

One theory is that the humidity builds from Lake Geneva and then hits the cold front surrounding the giant Mont Blanc (4880m) which is only 50km away. The result is our little town becomes a dumping ground for snow!

There’s more forecast over the next few days and we have got availability still in February so get in touch to make the most of this historic snow…
