Situated about an hour and a half from Geneva, Avoriaz and Morzine are the main areas of the French side of the Portes du Soleil area. Avoriaz is the highest resort of the Portes du Soleil, being perched on a dramatic cliff top overlooking the region. Morzine is a 20 minute car journey away, or is accessible by the lift system. The rest of the Portes du Soleil area can be reached by road, piste or lift.
The lifts are marked on the piste maps using straight black lines and there are four types; button tow/drag, chair, telecabine and telepherique. They have the corresponding abbreviations:
- TK - téléski (drag)
- TS - télésiege (chair)
- TC - télécabine (gondola)
- TPH - téléphérique (cable car)
For télécabine think gondola and for téléphérique think cable car. Anything prefixed/suffixed with “Express” means a 6 person modern fast chair lift.
