Ride down from Avoriaz as the sun sets. Ski until last lifts, enjoy a vin chaud on the Avoriaz Plateau and then ride down homerun under the Prodains gondola as the snow turns pink and the sky puts on a show with the last light of the day. There’s nothing more special than the mountains at dusk, so take your time and lap up the feel good vibes.
