Pointe de Vorlaz

Pointe de Vorlaz - Description

Pointe de Vorlaz, 2346m, is an exceptional off piste itinerary in the Avoriaz ski area (sometimes known as Pepsi Max). However, be warned, the climb up is definitely not for the faint hearted!

The climb up is accessed from the top of the Cubore chairlift, from which you traverse under the south face of the peak. It is a steep boot pack up to the ridge and then a hairy climb along the very narrow and exposed ridge. The ease of the hike to the summit can vary significantly depending on snow and recent weather conditions. Often much easier done with ice axe and crampons (which we can provide you with) to make it an easier and more relaxing approach to the summit!

From the top, there are several options for the descent of varying difficulty on the north, east, and west faces of the mountain. The classic off piste line is down the north facing face which heads towards the Lindarets bowl, coming out at the bottom of the Brochaux chairlift.

If you prefer to do this as a splitboard / ski touring route, this is possible starting at the bottom of the Brochaux chairlift heading up the valley to the south (the classic descent route).
