A House Of Coco Winter: Avoriaz, Rock and Snow

Rock On Ultimate, the worldwide season kick-off event.

There comes a time every year when the vintage fur makes an unceremonious return and the jeans and boot combo makes a comeback.

Good bye sumer, we’ve festival’d you, we’ve camp’d you, we’ve Ibiza’d you and we’ve Daisy Duke’d you. The sad passing of an unusually glorious UK summer.

Here at House of Coco we don’t favour seasons, we favour what they can offer us. And as Autumn dawns and winter approaches our little finger tips are craving a nibble off Jack Frost!

Get your boards and skis at the ready, stock up on style and lip balm and book your opening week at Avoriaz!

During the week of the 12th – 19th of December Avoriaz hosts Rock on Ultimate to open the season in style. For the last 10 years the Fête de la Glisse has attracted 30,000 people over one weekend.

Rock On Ultimate is now to be the worldwide season kick-off event, introducing a unique rock and ski concept.

A concept not lost on it’s main band The Bad Things with none other than Shaun White!!! Snowboard pro and all round rockstar in the industry. The gig is happening on the Saturday night, we’re gutted to be missing it… mostly because… SHAUN WHITE! His talent is unreal.

Avoriaz resort’s clientele is varied, with not only young people from all over Europe visiting but also families with children and yet year after year they absolutely nail the entertainment!

Make your week in the snow at Avoriaz.
