Update 26/11/20

Due to current sanitary situation, the French governement doesn't allow us to open the Avoriaz ski area for Christmas holidays and we don't yet know when we'll be authorized to open.

For those who had planned to join us at this period and who had already purchased their skipasses on www.skipass-avoriaz.com, don't panic!  For all ski passes purchased on the site www.skipass-avoriaz.com with an expiry date prior to January 1, 2021 inclusive, you are given the choice:

  1. If you already know when you will be returning during the current winter season: just change your skipasses dates and keep our Early Booking prices advantages.
  2. If you don't yet know the dates of your next stay: you can credit your customer account and use your credit later in that winter season or in the next winter season. Please note, new skipasses prices will be based on the rates available on our website while purchasing.
  3. You can finally be reimbursed directly to the bank account ued for your order.

You have until 12/15/2020 to let us know your choice by contacting our customer service via our contact form. Without a response from you by this date, you will be automatically reimbursed within a maximum of 5 days.

Affected customers will be informed directly by email on 11/27/2020.

For those who have a season pass, the administrative closure of the ski lifts is provided for in our General Conditions of Sale and the amount to be reimbursed will be calculated at the end of the season taking into account the number of weeks of closures observed throughout the season. . Your requests will therefore be sent at the end of Winter only.

Our disappointment is equal to all the ardor that we have been putting for several months in the preparation of this so special season. But all our teams remain mobilized to listen to our customers, refine our health protocols and prepare our slopes and ski lifts so that everything will be perfect when we can finally welcome you.

We can't wait to see you at an altitude of 1800m!
