Taking the train to Avoriaz probably won’t be the quickest or the cheapest option, but it is certainly doable in a day. It will involve taking a morning Eurostar service to Paris Gare du Nord, and then taking a taxi across town to Gare de Lyon. From here take the direct TGV to Cluses, which is 40km away from Avoriaz.
