    Portes du Soleil ski-passes (Full area)

    Most people of intermediate skiing ability and above would generally go for the full Portes du Soleil area pass, which incorporates 12 linked ski resorts and 650km of marked pistes. With this pass, you can ski in both France (Morzine, Les Gets, Avoriaz, Montriond, Abondance, St Jean d’Aulps and Chatel) and Switzerland (Champery, Les Crozets, Champoussin, Morgins and Torgon) and enjoy the full extent of one of the world’s largest ski areas.  

    The Portes du Soleil pass is available from 5 hours to 30 days duration. If you are a regular visitor to the area, then a season pass is probably your best option. There is also a 5-day non-consecutive option available if you plan on making frequent shorter visits that don't quite justify a season pass.

    Discounted ski-passes

    Early Booking
    You can get discounts on Portes du Soleil ski passes when you buy individual ski passes before the start of the season. Save -15% when you buy passes before 30th September (-10% on passes valid during school holidays) or -10% from 1st October to 15th November (-5% on passes valid during school holidays).

    Weekend Pass
    Avoriaz offers a Weekend and Saturday-only pass at a slightly reduced rate. The slopes are also often quieter on weekends as many people are just arriving or leaving so it’s a good time to enjoy shorter lift queues and less piste-traffic.

    Late Season
    Early and late season ski passes for both Avoriaz and the Portes du Soleil also come at a discounted price which is great, but you do need to be mindful that there may not be full snow cover at the very start and very end of the season.
