Every February the Avoriaz Snow Carnival comes to town, and stays for the entire month. This year from February 9th until March 9th, you can experience four weeks of magic and wonders, animations and shows, in the heart of the resort. Events included in the carnival include e-Fat Bike demonstrations, Inuit experiences, parties held at the ice rink, and sledge races. With events like this going on in town, it’s no surprise that Avoriaz has been voted the best family ski resort in previous years. As well as the carnival, Avoriaz is home to some more permanent attractions for adults and children alike.
There is a cinema that shows at least two different films daily, and there is also a bowling alley which is well worth visiting no matter what group you’re in. The alley stays open until 02:00, and is a great place to go and grab a beer with mates after a full day on the slopes. The lanes are reasonably private, and you can book them out in advance if you contact them via their website. The Ice rink is also a great place to head for a romantic evening, or an evening wearing the kids out before bed. It’s surrounded by bars and restaurants, so if you’re more of a spectator this is the perfect spot.
