Some tips have been offered to people heading on ski weekends in the Portes du Soleil region in the weeks ahead, so they can put their skills to the test during their trip.

The advice site Doorstep Skis said that there is a 'circuit' of slopes in the region that should be tackled in a certain order so people can benefit from a variety of conditions and challenges during their holiday, beginning in Les Gets.

According to the source, the best way is to tackle the circuit in a counter-clockwise manner, first by heading to Les Gets up the Chavannes lift and following the signs to Morzine.

From here, people should ski down the Pleney slope to the bottom, where a bus stop is located, then take the petit train across town to the Super Morzine lift, which will take them up to the Zore lift.

Skiers should then follow the cat track to the Proclou lift, which will take them up to the top of the Lindaret bowl, and from here people can ski down into the bowl, and even stop to have some fun in the Burton Stash park on the way down.

"From Lindaret, take the Chaux Fleurie lift up and ski down to the bottom of the Plaine Dranse. Take the Chaux-des-Rosees chair up and ski down to Les Combes. Take this lift up and follow the long run down into Linga. From here you can again get the bus across the town of Chatel, to the Super Chatel lift," Doorstep Skis advised.

From the top of the Super Chatel, people should take the Chemillon and ski down to the bottom of the Le Corbeau, then they can take the bus across Morgins to the Folleuse, then take the lift up and ski to the Bochasses, following signs for Champoussin.

Next, winter sports enthusiasts should ski to the bottom of the Aiguilles des Champeys and take the lift up to the Pointe de L'Au, before skiing down into Les Crosets and taking the new Grande Conche lift, before schussing to the bottom of the Cubore, and taking this lift up and over into the Fornet area.

"Then ski back down into Avoriaz, take the Stade lift and ski down the Prodains home run Again take the A bus back into Morzine and take the Pleney bubble up, from here follow signs all the way into Les Gets," the source recommended.

By following this route, or a rough outline of it, people can be sure they are taking in all of the sights and challenges of the Portes du Soleil during their ski weekends.
