The giant Portes du Soleil ski region which includes the ski resorts of Avoriaz, Chatel, Les Gets and Morzine and offers 600km of slopes spreading over the French/Swiss border has announced it will be selling 5,000 season passes at less than half-price on Friday, May 29th, 2020 at 8am local time (7am in the UK).
The offer price of €499 (approximately £444) is a little under half the regular cost of the passes which comes in at €1,028
The deal is clearly of most interest to skiers based in the region, however it looks like the cost will be lower than a 14 day lift pass is likely to be, so may appeal to those planning a longer trip, or multiple trips. The region has not yet published 2020-21 pricing but last winter a 14-day adult ticket was priced at €508.
The passes will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis, the area says, advising skiers "Be ready!"
At the present time it is unclear what travel will be like to and from the Alps next winter and how slope access may be limited if the pandemic is still ongoing at that point, if at all.
