The Portes du Soleil is huge and if you’re new to it, can be a little daunting. Here is an idea just using easy blue runs with lunch and drink suggestions thrown in. This is a route good for an easy first day confidence builder.
- Take SuperMorzine bubble then straight on to the Zore chairlift
- Follow signs to Proclou chairlift along an easy green and take that chair
- Take a right down heading to Avoriaz centre and the direction of the Prodains lift
- Follow the piste as it slopes to the left, leading to the 3 lifts at the bottom. But if you are ready for a drink stop at Chez Flo which is on your left.
- The next run is the hardest on this route so if you don’t feel like it, skip to number 7
- Take the Lac Intrets lift and head left, almost back on yourself under where you’ve just come.
- You will end up back at Avoriaz just above Chez Flo. Head to the group of 3 lifts below you.
- Take the Tour lift heading to Linderettes, it is the one straight ahead of you.
- Follow the piste to the right heading to Linderettes.
- In the Linderettes bolw lunch at Mamos which is the last on the right of the cluster of restaurants in the bowl. The food is home made with great burgers and the table service is friendly and relaxed
- Take the Linderettes lift then head for SuperMorzine and Zore. Take care as there is a right turn half way down short piste that you will need to take. Signed to Zore and SuperMorzine
- At the bottom of the learner area turn right and go under the little bridge. Still following SuperMorzine and Zore
- On zore piste keep to the right if you’re feeling like a bit of fun, there are some easy rollers, jumps and features that even little ones can try
- Still following signs for Supermorzine, take the chair on the right
- There is an easy green down to two easy blue runs back to the Supermorzine. Pick whichever one you like.
- Have an apres drink on the very sunny terrace of La Grenouille du Marais or if you haven’t eaten yet their omelettes and goats cheese salads are very good
We have tried hard to ensure the above is accurate but always take and review a piste map and and the lift closures whilst you are out
