What's on in Avoriaz February 2019

Horah! The chaos of Christmas is now a distant memory, we’ve all powered through January, and finally it’s time to start looking forward to your winter getaway.

Whether you’re out here for a romantic mini-break, weekend with mates, or six days with the family, there are a number of things happening in resort that will keep you entertained for the duration of your stay. Conditions up the mountain are at their finest, and there are 286 pistes in the Portes du Soleil just waiting for you to ski them.

Snow Carnival

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.

Six Nations rugby

Speaking of spectators, the Six Nations fixtures will be showing on three out of the four weekends this month. You may be on holiday, but if like me it’s a tradition to get down to the pub whilst these events are on, you’re not going to want to miss out. Fortunately there are venues in Avoriaz that will be showing the games, La Tavaillon being one of them. This bar is nestled in between the restaurant Les Fontaines Blanches, and the sweet little boulangerie in the town centre. Seasonnaires love it here, the atmosphere is great, and so is the food. Like a classic pub, they serve burgers and chips (rumoured to be the best chips in resort) and have a selection of beers for you to choose from. It is by no means authentically French, but you’ll have plenty of time to soak in the culture between matches.

February ski deal

As far ask ski deals go this month, you can save money by being a family. Who would have thought it: kids could spare you some Euros during February half-term. Families of a minimum of four (two adults and two children) buying a six to 14 day Portes du Soleil ski pass benefit from 10% off the regular public price. These passes can be purchased online, or at the ski pass offices in and around Morzine and Avoriaz. It is worth also noting that kids under the age of five ski for free. Proof of age is required, and for those of you who don’t know, the lift pass offices in this area are located at Pleney, Super Morzine, Ardent and Prodains.

Parties

For those of you visiting without little ones, Happy Hours is the place to go and party. Throughout February every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday there will be live music or a DJ’s here guaranteed to get you grooving. New addition to Avoriaz, La Folie Douce is another top spot for a lively après ski. They have live DJ’s and singers daily from 14:00 to 18:00. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for upcoming events throughout February.
