Some people only ski in two, maybe three different ski resorts in their lifetime. But how about skiing in 12 different ski resorts on one holiday. Yes that's right! Because the Portes du Soleil is one of the largest interconnected ski areas in the world.
With more than 650 km of pistes, about 200 ski-lifts, 14 valleys, seven snow parks, four airbags, a superpipe in Avoriaz and The Stash freestyle park carved into the forests of Lindarets, the Portes du Soleil is world class. Ranked as one of the two largest ski areas in the world it offers you one of the greatest ski safaris of your lifetime.
Tackle it clockwise or anticlockwise the results are the same. The PDS circuit is one epic ski safari. In one day you can ski almost every ski resort on the PDS piste map and still have time for lunch. Starting in Avoriaz dropping into Switzerland via the Swiss Wall (or take the chair!), passing through Les Crosets, Morgins, back into France to Châtel, back to Les Lindarets, Super Morzine, then home. If not this way then plan a different route. The world is your ski oyster.
Then pick one of the 12 ski resorts on the piste map and spend the day getting there and then getting back. You could even book a helicopter to fly you home. It’s still a legitimate ski safari adventure wherever you end up!
You could ski Les Gets, Morzine, Avoriaz, Châtel, Morgins, Les Croset, Champery, Torgon, Champousiin, Montriond, St Jean D’Aulps, La chapelle d’Abondance or Abondance. So where will you go? What route will you choose? Where will you eat? What will be your best mulled wine stop?
