Avoriaz Opening Weekend

The locals and seasonaires of Morzine, Avoriaz and Les Gets were treated to a bonus powder weekend this weekend. Avoriaz, due to open officially for the Fete de Glisse this coming weekend, had so much fresh snow than a pre-season weekend opening was announced. Yet despite the rumours that there was in fact too much snow for the lifts to open, open they did. Saturday was a cracking day, the sun braking through the clouds in the afternoon to top the day off nicely.

There was a little bit of ski theft going on though... a friend had his very cool and very expensive powder skis nicked from outside Changabang in the centre of Avoriaz. So keep a close eye on your kit kids.

Sunday was a stunning bluebird day and we headed to Les Gets. Avoiding the 50 minute lift queue by shamelessly queue jumping was a bonus and although the pistes were slightly more packed than in Avoriaz, the snow was in great shape.

But now all of the lifts are closed again... until Saturday that is, when everything opens up for good!
