Exposition

Les Portes du Soleil or PDS in the terminology of the locals is located southeast of Lake Geneva. And although the Jura blockade constitutes an important first clouds from the northwest PDS seems to benefit from the so-called lake-effect the immense Lac Léman (or Lake Geneva). Cold air from the northwest up here some extra moisture which makes for a bit more snow in the French / Swiss Alps for . In combination with the many alpine meadows guarantee that you already little powder dumps can drive. But PDS also has some disadvantages. If the component has a southern jet stream during the warm fronts the weststau blowing in a warm hairdryer. It is therefore the moments when a cold front from the northwest throughput and a subsequent high temperature fresh hold that the best conditions yields. Due to the advanced position in the Alps for doing the spring in March already his entrance.

With bad weather

La Chapelle d'Abondance, Morzine and the forests around Prodains offer the best protection on days when the flakes pouring from the sky. The north side of the Col de la Joux distance (which forms a connection between Chatel and Avoriaz) provides enough forest to play.
