The Trail des Hauts Forts-Avoriaz
Category: > Avoriaz | 17th Sep, 2010
Avoriaz 1800, the famous mountain top resort in the heart of the Portes du Soleil, played host to the Trail des Hauts Forts in August. The Trail des Hauts Forts is an annual 42km cross country mountain race. The event, which offers runners the option of the 42km marathon or 21km half marathon, departs from Avoriaz and crosses the exquisite landscape of the famous Portes Du Soleil, the most expansive ski area in the world. Competitors in the half marathon have a 1200m ascent to conquer while the marathon runners climb nearly 3000m along mountain passes and on muddy tracks. This year's event, the third of its kind, was another success with not one injury sustained by the hardy competitors. Alpine Angels has being successfully finding properties to buy across the Portes du Soleil for many years. Click below to see a list of some rather fabulous apartments and chalets in Avoriaz itself.
