Morzine

An Alpine Original

Just fifty miles from Geneva, Morzine is so easily accessible it has become a favourite from the UK. But 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 pretty tree runs around a full range of skiing. New starters and intermediates have miles and miles of perfect ground to discover at their leisure with plenty of space. The more advanced can get stuck in to the diversity and complexity of this vast terrain. Morzine gets a big thumbs up with families and has a good variety of après ski.

You’ll find mouth-watering fondue and Savoyard tartiflette melting in all the cosy restaurants. Head back to bed fully satisfied, ready for the next perfect day on the slopes!

About Morzine

The area covers 12 towns or villages, the huge range range of skiing across France and Switzerland is all covered by the same liftpass pass, making for incredible value. With so much skiing and snowboarding on offer this is certainly a resort that will can keep turning up untried areas the whole week long!

The Morzine ski resort offers a genuinely unrivaled variety of skiing and snowboarding.

Beginner Skiing Morzine

Morzine (and indeed it's neighbour Les Gets) are especially suitable for beginners, with a very good range of inexpensive children's facilities that help the resort Morzine stand out from the crowd.

The range of kids’ clubs, activies and ski gardens, as well as circuits of gentle ski runs for easy cruising reinforce the kid friendly atmosphere.

Having hardly any drag lifts, (really good for beginners), also makes Morzine a very popular choice for beginner skiers, snowboarders and families.

About the Skiing & Boarding

If you’re learning to ski in either Morzine or Les Gets, you’ve come to the right place. The terrain in this area is perfectly suited to rapid progression, with gentle gradients and wide pistes. The beginners slopes and meeting points are extremely close to the town centre. The ski school we recommend is as highly regarded as the terrain, with an extremely professional outlook, and good English speaking instructors.

Avoriaz (connected to Morzine) was first to host the British Championships way back in the early 90's when tartan trousers, boiler suits and permed hair-styles were cool. 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 will find in the are simply staggering.Families and beginners will feel particularly well served with extremely well maintained pistes, and a well linked network of lifts.

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

For all Abilities

Riders of all ability will enjoy the "Star Wars" run that wends its merry way down through the trees to the Ardent bubble, offering plenty of small hits, banks, drops and tree routes for the more gung-ho. The Swiss side also offers excellent riding and skiing and is often the last to get tracked on a powder day. The Mossettes chair accesses the hugely impressive Super Park at les Crossets, however a full area pass will be required. The park is not easy for beginners to access but intermediates and up (4 weeks plus) will love the thrilling ride down and the powder opportunities under the chair lift-line.

Around Morzine

Morzine is a very pretty village with excellent facilities, numerous bars and cafes with boutique shopping to keep the non-skiers entertained. A nice day trip away from the ski fields is to Saint Jean D'aulps.

This charming, almost cute, little resort is part of the same ski area and connected by the area's shuttle bus.

The traditional nature of Morzine is very evident in its facilities, architecture and frendliness, resulting in a very pleasant village to stay in.

Being quite a large summer destination as well as winter mountain resort there is lots to offer almost all year round and, it has the right amount of British prescence.

Socially it is one of the livelier resorts in France, offering late night venues for partying or relaxed drinking and dining venues for the more sedate and family orientated skiers, as well as pizza and other take aways.
