The brief

To deliver a high-quality, and safe festival for customers and to establish the brand in its' new home of Avoriaz.

The challenge

At 1800m above sea level, set on cliffs within the 400 square mile Portes du Soleil ski region, Avoriaz provided a beautiful, but at times harsh, environment in which to work and operate.

Unlike other major winter festivals, Snowboxx’ setting in Avoriaz means it is located in its entirety above the snow-line, affording it’s customers a truly unique experience and its staff a truly unique set of challenges.

To add to the challenge Avoriaz is a car free resort with no roads, public transport is only offered on snow routes by horse and sleigh as well as SnowCats, logistics on this project and a close tie in with the Avoriaz Tourist Board and their town logistics team were of great importance and the biggest challenge.

The result

Successful delivery in its first year in Avoriaz has enabled our client to build their relationship with the resort owners, and stakeholders and establish and grow within the resort.
