Avoriaz is purpose-built ski resort at an altitude of 1800 metres, sitting on a plateau overlooking Morzine in the valley below. It's a great place to stay if you want easy access to the rest of the Portes du Soleil ski area, as it sits right in the middle. Morzine below, is a bigger, traditional French mountain town, with its historical buildings and the weekly market. Les Gets is often spoken about in the same breath as Morzine, this is because they both access the same ski area. Les Gets is smaller than Morzine and consists of pretty chalets amongst wooded hillsides.
