In the last couple of weeks no fewer than three brand new events have been announced for Avoriaz this coming winter. Chalet Beatrice is just minutes away from the super-quick Ardent Telecabine, one of the quickest ways to access Avoriaz during your Morzine winter ski holiday.
Transition Snow – 13th – 19th December 2015
We’re very excited that this sister event of the legendary Snowbombing festival is to make Avoriaz its home. For the first time we’ll see acts such as Dizzee Rascal, Bondax and Wilkinson live at 1800m, and you can too! Transition Snow wristbands will be available to holiday makers staying elsewhere in the Portes du Soleil so you can treat yourself to a huge night out.
Red Bull’s Crashed Ice Riders Cup – 15th & 16th January 2016
Crashed Ice is one of those sports that’s crept up on us over recent interviews, maybe because two of the sport’s best athletes come from Morzine and Les Gets. In a nutshell it involves ice skating down a frozen solid boardercross course, racing three other athletes to the finish line. Avoriaz hosts a stage of the Crashed Ice Riders Cup in January next year and we’ve heard the course runs through the very centre of the resort.
Snowboxx Festival – 12th – 19th March 2016
A second huge music festival arrives in Avoriaz this winter. On the Snowboxx lineup so far you’ll find Mike Skinner (of The Streets), Grandmaster Flash and Sigma. Snowboxx also promises a succession of special events and a real festival atmosphere in Avoriaz, and since the festival coincides with the Portes du Soleil’s well established Rock the Pistes festival, you’ll be spoilt for musical choice during this week!
