The Portes du SoleilA 4 seasons domain

A 4 seasons domain

Les Portes du Soleil, a large ski area that invites you to cross not only geographical borders but also seasonal borders and to look at the mountain with new eyes.
It is an alpine territory composed of 11 mountain village resorts in Haute-Savoie and the futuristic resort of Avoriaz 1800 that is constantly renewed according to the seasons.
The landscapes that are offered to your eyes during your stay in the Portes du Soleil are drastically different depending on the season. Between your New Year’s ski holiday and your Pass’Portes du Soleil MTB weekend, everything will have changed and that’s part of the wonder of nature. By choosing the Portes du Soleil all year round, you will witness the variation of the colors of the flora, the size of the fauna’s coats and a palette of infinitely rich smells.
The playground changes but the pleasure remains!
Each season has its own emotions and flavors.
Admire the spiral of the seasons, the vertigo of the plants that despair, regain hope and go to fire! Strong activities adapted to your desires are offered to you throughout the year to fill up with emotions.




Season of shimmering colors, the crackling of falling leaves, the picking of mushrooms or blueberries… Summer is over but autumn is so beautiful!

The demagnetization empties the mountain pastures of the herds that until then grazed quietly. The mountain finds its quietude and prepares to put on its winter bower. You can hear the deer bellowing amidst the stratus clouds that form each year in the valleys.

It’s time to rise on our beautiful hiking trails to admire the evanescent lapping of a sea of clouds against the backdrop of the spruce forest. The foliage of the trees goes through all the tones of reds and oranges; garnet, vermilion, crimson, a joy for the retina.
The summits find an immaculate whiteness. They stand out from these rainbow forests, as if chiseled in the crystalline air.
A grandiose spectacle that we warmly recommend and that the most talented manage to immortalize behind their lenses.

What a pleasure to feel the frost crunching under your crampons, to see your warm breath materialize into a fine mist when you touch the crystalline air or to walk along a stream frozen into an ephemeral ice sculpture. Following its course you will inevitably end up at a lake where you can skate in the heart of the high Savoyard winter.

Spring is when the snow melts and grows back into grass.

A child's word

Fall is the spring of winter.
