Avoriaz will kick off its 2012/13 season in suitably festive style this December with a celebration of skiing, snowboarding and all things mountain-related.

The Snowsports Celebration weekend – December 15th and 16th – marks the start of the winter season for the Portes du Soleil resort.

Avoriaz ski holidays can be booked for the week of December 15th to 22nd to catch the spectacle, which will see over 50 top ski and snowboard brands in the traffic-free village for the two-day Fete Glisse.

You'll be able to try out all the latest gear from top ski and snowboard manufacturers' 2013 ranges, as well as plenty of new clothes, gadgets and gizmos.

There will be lots of "initiations" and have-a-go stands so you can get stuck in with a tonne of new experiences. So if you're a inveterate skier, what better excuse to try out boarding for half a day?

One of the most interesting features of this year's kick-off party is the Shred Zone, an innovative snow park for people to try out.

Snowsports Celebration organisers say: "A snow park completely made up of music inspired components: vinyl, ghetto blaster, guitar...Will you challenge to run the consecutive modules?"

Children under ten will enjoy a totally free snowboard introduction in the "snow garden", which will include loan of boards, boots and helmets.

Professional exhibitions, free goodies from the likes of Burton and complimentary mulled wine and roast chestnuts all add to the experience.

This is just the start of a whole season of events in Avoriaz, which is also home to the Ski and Music World Festival from January to early February and the Rock the Pistes music festival in March.

On the Rock the Pistes festival the Avoriaz website explains: "Free concerts staged in the wildest settings at the heart of the ski area... The best international and French pop-rock artists... A music festival like no other in Europe, all you need to see the gigs is your lift pass."

Fantastic Bargain Ski Holidays in Portes du Soleil.
