Easy on line ski hire booking for Avoriaz

The resort of Avoriaz was laid out with pedestrians very much in mind and is in fact almost completely car free. Getting around on foot is easy enough as the resort is relatively flat. However, if you wish to travel in style to your ski hire store to pick up or drop off your rental equipment take a horse-drawn sleigh.
