Avoriaz snow report and forecast

Discover the latest Avoriaz snow conditions

Author Caro Blackwell, Destination Editor Updated

So that’s it for this winter in Avoriaz. It’s been a strange season, after an early snow dump and optimistic signs of a good winter ahead, we suffered a lack of snow at Christmas and New Year on lower slopes. Then the first two weeks of January we welcomed plenty of snow which boosted our slopes and gave us good sunny powder ski days.  However temperatures were milder than normal meaning the lower slopes suffered early, but the skiing at higher altitude remained really good. In general, over 2000 metres the snow levels and pistes have been great with above average snow depths for most of the season. We enjoyed good skiing in March with a mixture of powder and sunshine days and so far April has been great! The piste groomers have done a fantastic job this winter keeping the pistes skiable in the face of unpredictable and challenging weather conditions. We’ll be back next winter with our weekly snow reports, until then, enjoy a break before summer in Avoriaz opens up.


We did get good fresh snowfall of around 15 - 20 cm on Tuesday over 1400 - 1800 metres and today the sun is shining! It looks like we’ve got some great warm and sunny days coming up for the rest of this week and over the weekend. Then the temperature will drop again with light to moderate snow forecast over 2000 metres during Monday and on Tuesday, with the freezing level down to around 1400 metres.

You’ve still got another good week to enjoy the end of season spring skiing and activities around the resort so make the most of the fresh snow, warmer days and long lunches on a sunny terrace. 

Avoriaz will close for the winter on 21st April 2024.

Top tips for skiing this week

As you've still got a few days skiing in Avoriaz here are our top tips:

  • The temperature is changeable in the mountains, we’re properly spring skiing now, but it may be chilly out of the sun. So thinner layers, a shell jacket rather than a thick winter coat, more lightweight gloves are a good idea, and open those vents as the day warms up! 
  • Don't forget the sunscreen! Even when the wind chill is high, the sun in the mountains is still intense. 
  • You’ll need your goggle lenses for sun for the next few days
  • Early morning the pistes are harder packed and maybe a bit icy and then a bit slushy in the afternoon. So coordinate your ski time to whichever conditions you prefer. 
  • Get your skis and boards waxed as the wetter snow can slow you down a bit!
  • Book the sunny restaurant terrace for long relaxed lunch
