Shared Transfers to and from Avoriaz
Shared transfers are a great economical option. You will be taken to, or from your hotel, chalet or apartment, regardless of where you are staying in Avoriaz. You will be sharing the vehicle with other people who will be collected from or dropped off at different locations in Avoriaz.
You might have to wait for more passengers at the airport or you might have to wait for other passengers to be dropped off in Avoriaz before you, therefore your journey time might slightly increase. Nevertheless, you will always be notified in due time of your actual pick-up time.
Otherwise, there is always the likelihood that you are fortunate, with all passengers coming off the same flight or from flights landing within minutes of each other. Or, drop-offs in Avoriaz might be close to one another or you might be the first to be dropped-off in Avoriaz.

Avoriaz is a French resort located in the centre of the Portes du Soleil (literally the Door of the Sun), which is one of the largest and most popular ski areas worldwide.
Avoriaz is part of the commune of Morzine and has an interesting history.
The ski resort was built in 1965 when French downhill Olympic champion Jean Vuarnet was given the responsibility of developing the skiing of Morzine.
Morzine, although excellent for beginners and intermediates, lacks in altitude. As a consequence, Avoriaz was developed 600 m or 2000 ft higher in altitude and it has a dramatic clifftop location overlooking Morzine.
Besides its advantageous position in the heart of the Portes du Soleil, Avoriaz is a purpose-built ski resort consisting of wooden chalets which blend into the majestic mountains.
Avoriaz was voted Best Family resort in 2013 at the World Snow Awards in London.
Among many other family facilities, it is worth noticing that Avoriaz is a “100% ski-in, ski-out" pedestrianised resort, which means that you can get wherever you want on foot, regardless of where you are staying in Avoriaz.
