Avoriaz Opening for Skiing this Weekend

J2SkiNews posted 07-Jun

Avoriaz say that when they open for summer this coming weekend, they'll be opening some ski slopes as well as mountain bike tracks, their golf course, and other activities.

They say its because of the "exceptional amount of snowfall that fell last winter". Like most French ski areas they were unable to operate ski lifts during the winter season because of a French government ban, although most resorts were otherwise open.

The ski area will be open from this coming Friday June 11 to Sunday June 13 with the Prodains cable-car, Stade chairlift and Lac-Intrêts chairlift running between 8am and 1pm daily (from 7:30 am to 3:00 pm for the Prodains cable car).

Five runs and a terrain park will be open, with three slopeside restaurants also in operation. Lift tickets will cost only 17 Euros but there are limited numbers available. A joint ticket including mountain biking with skiing will also be available priced 26 Euros. They're due to go on sale online at 8.30am on Wednesday, 9th May.

La Clusaz was the first ski area to reopen in France after the government's six month ban on ski lifts operating ended in late May. It operated for two days with freer lift passes for up to 1,000 people each day, tickets sold out almost immediately.

Les 2 Alpes has now opened for summer glacier skiing and Val d'Isere is due to join them this weekend, meaning three areas will be open for skiing in the French Alps. A fourth, Tignes plans to open the weekend after next for summer skiing.

So, can any J2Skiers get there? Would be pretty epic to ski and mountain bike on the same day...
