The Avoriaz Alpine Ski School main meeting point - THE HUT - is perfectly situated on the Avoriaz Plateau between La Folie Douce & le Yeti. We have an on-snow meeting point chalet, and a private area for starting and finishing lessons. From here we have instant access to beginner runs, easy blue runs, hard blue runs, red runs, black runs and off piste. For private lessons, our instructors can meet you elsewhere around Avoriaz if you prefer, although THE HUT is the ideal location for most.
For some lessons (e.g. beginner lessons with clients coming up Prodains lift) we can meet you at THE TOP OF THE PRODAINS LIFT. Please check your booking confirmation email to see if you are meeting at THE HUT or at the TOP OF PRODAINS LIFT. When you get to the top of the Prodains lift, come up the escalator, turn right at the top and walk out onto the snow. If you walk 30 metres across to the bottom of the Plateau chairlift, your instructor will meet you there.
You can easily access our meeting point HUT from Morzine. Choose your starting point below for further details on how to find us. We recommend downloading the Avoriaz Up/Down mobile app for piste maps, live status of lifts and pistes openings, queue times, SOS calls and recommended attractions.
Instructions from Morzine via PRODAINS
If you are staying in Morzine, you can easily access the Avoriaz Plateau via the Prodains gondola lift. There are regular, free shuttle buses which drive from central Morzine to Prodains and pick up and drop off along the way. There is also plenty of parking at Prodains, which is approximately 6 euros for a days skiing.
The Prodains Express gondola takes 4 minutes to reach Avoriaz. From the top of the lift, walk 30 metres across to the bottom of the Plateau bubble lift and get on it, which will take you to a stones throw from our meeting point hut, where you will see large green and purple flags, beside the lively Folie Douce bar and restaurant.
We recommend starting the lesson at our hut, however, if you prefer, our instructor can meet you at the top of the Prodains Gondola.
Please double check the meeting point on your booking confirmation. Does it say 'Ski school office' or 'Top of Prodains/Bottom of Plateau lift'?

Take the Ardent bubble lift, which will take you up the Lindarets village. Get off the Ardent bubble and ski across 70metres to the bottom of the Lindarets 4-seat Chairlift. Take this chairlift and at the top, get off and skate forward 20 metres where you will be able to see down onto the Avoriaz Plateau.
You will need to ski about 200 metres of Blue run to get down onto the Plateau, and you will see our meeting point and flags on the left, beside the Folie Douce Bar & Restaurant. Be aware, on busy weeks, this short section of blue run can get a bit crowded.
If your lesson starts at 09:15, taking this route is a bit tighter for time. If in doubt, please liaise with our office who will be happy to help you plan your trip to our meeting point.
If the Lindarets Chairlift isn't open, the Prolays 6-seat chairlift will also take you the right direction. Turn right at the top and continue along the easy blue run on the ridge top until you see the top of the Lindarets ad Proclou chairlifts, where you will turn left to get down onto the Plateau.
