Morzine

The largest linked ski area in Europe

Morzine-Avoriaz is part of the huge Portes du Soleil region and aside from being one of the prettiest resorts in the Alps, it’s also one of the liveliest and the largest (size of ski area). It has year-round appeal and many cool bars, great shops and amazing restaurants. It has lots of charm and chalet-style architecture with no highrise blocks, so you’ll love the feel of it.

It’s also the most northern resort in the French Alps and is directly linked with Avoriaz - thus enjoying an excellent snow record for a comparatively moderate altitude. In other words, you don't need to be so high to get good snow! There’s 650 Kms of piste (all on the same lift pass) which spans into Switzerland and makes it the largest linked ski area in Europe. And just fifty miles from Geneva, Morzine-Avoriaz is so easily accessible it has become a favourite from the UK.

  • 650kms of Ski Area
  • Highest Lift at 2402m
  • 162 Blue & Green Runs
  • 106 Red Runs
  • 28 Black Runs
  • 1hr 20mins transfer time

About Morzine-Avoriaz

The Portes du Soleil is the largest linked ski area in Europe. It covers 12 ski resorts (all on the same lift pass) and you can tour around all of them in a day, but get ready for an adventure as you’ll cover 76 Kms of piste! It offers a huge range of skiing across France and Switzerland and with so many pistes, it’s a resort that will keep turning up undiscovered runs the whole week long!

There’s also heaps to do off the slopes, so if you’re a non-skier or would like to try alternative activities, you’ll like the variety on offer which includes snowshoe walks, mountain bike rides, ice diving, swimming, climbing, parapenting, husky rides, devil karts, skidoos and much more.

Activities to do in Morzine

Beginner Skiing Morzine

New starters and progressive skiers have miles and miles of perfect ground to discover at their leisure with plenty of space. Morzine Avoriaz has an excellent range of nursery slopes and an extensive network of easy green and blue runs which span over into Switzerland so you’ll never be stuck on the lower slopes.There’s a great choice of inexpensive ski and snowboard schools, and many are British run so you’ll get the very best tuition from compassionate and welcoming instructors.

The resort is known for its children's facilities and range of kids’ clubs, age-related activities and ski gardens that promote its family friendly atmosphere. Having hardly any drag lifts, (really good for beginners), also makes Morzine a very popular choice for beginner skiers, boarders and families..

Intermediate and Advanced Skiing

The terrain in this area is perfectly suited to rapid progression, with gentle gradients, safe steeps and wide pistes with easy-to-do off piste for those epic powder days and a dedicated Freeride zone up the Pointe de Nyon.

The experts have such a wealth of skiing available that it is hard to imagine anyone becoming tired of the Portes du Soleil! Straddling the Franco-Swiss border, the lift system is especially well planned, allowing long distances to be skied.

We love the Portes du Soleil tour which takes in all 12 ski villages, (about 76 Kms of piste), and will take intermediates and up almost a day to complete. A proper adventure that makes this resort even more appealing.

The Snowboard Capital of Europe

Avoriaz (now part of Morzine) was first to host the British Snowboard Championships way back in the early 90's when tartan trousers, boiler suits and permed hair-styles were in. Be that as it may, the resort's early adoption of the then unheard-of craze of "snowboarding" has now given the sport real momentum for today's visitors, and the facilities that you’ll find in the area are impressive. There’s more than 10 terrain parks (we keep losing count) with half pipes, handrails and a great snowboarders’ vibe. It’s fair to say you’ll probably find more snowboarders in Morzine Avoriaz than in any other resort in Europe.

Facilities aside, the terrain is the important consideration. And it’s almost unrivalled, here! You’ll love the variety of easy hits, banks, drops, rollovers, tree runs and mini-fun parks with smaller jumps and rails to suit the beginners as they cut their teeth on tricks.

Riders of every ability will enjoy the "Star Wars" run that wends its way down through the trees to the Ardent bubble, offering plenty of small hits and tree routes for all to try.

Morzine town

Morzine is a year round mountain town and is as busy in summer as it is in winter. It attracts lots of British holiday-makers and Expat residents, so socially, is one of the best in France, offering late night venues for partying or relaxed drinking and dining venues for the more sedate and family orientated folk. No matter how popular it is, this small former farming town has managed to maintain its Haute-Savoie picture-postcard look and intimate alpine village feel.

Morzine has excellent facilities, numerous bars and cool cafes with boutique shops and ski or snowboard shops to keep everyone entertained. We think it has some of the best restaurants of all the French ski resorts and is certainly the prettiest of them all, with not a jot of ugly concrete or a high-rise building in sight.
