Avoriaz, France

162542493

Not only a highly sought-after destination for skiing, Avoriaz is also home to many other recreational allures including golf and mountain biking. Originally designed by French downhill Olympic champion Jean Vuarnet, these slopes are perfect for families and for skiers who really want to test the limits of their abilities. Our favorite part of Avoriaz — believe it or not — is not the ski slopes, but Aquariaz, the large indoor waterpark in the Village.
