Morzine Ski Resort

Ideally located at the heart of the Portes du Soleil ski area, Morzine offers a wonderful playground of 650km of ski slopes and all just over an hour from Geneva Airport. Traditional wood and slate chalets are nestled in a snug location in an immense valley between mountains and forests. Surrounded by the warmth and character of an authentic Savoyard village, this is one of the liveliest and bustling winter resorts.

With such an extensive ski area just waiting for you outside your chalet front door, Morzine is one of the best choices for mixed ability groups. For beginners or those returning to skiing for the first time in a while, the wide village nursery slopes are convenient and there are excellent runs to progress on at Le Pleney, Nyon and Super-Morzine. Morzine is a fantastic child friendly winter resort and being close to Geneva airport it is one of the most easily accessible ski resorts in France. Either side of the resort are the high altitude slopes of Avoriaz and the tree lined pistes of Les Gets offering skiing for all abilities and tastes. Some of the best terrain parks in the Alps are here and for those of a strong disposition, the infamous ‘Swiss wall’ a very steep mogul run straddling the border between France and Switzerland, will test not only your skill but also your nerve !

For intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders this vast ski domain can offer something new every day. With 12 distinct resorts accessed within the Portes du Soleil, the sense of travel is fantastic and along with endless varied terrain and top snowparks and the choice is easy. Strong intermediates will want to graduate quickly upwards from Morzine to Avoriaz and the much more demanding runs that stretch back down, as well as across the Swiss border.

 If you are not a dedicated skier or snowboarder, this is one of those destinations where there is a reasonable amount of other activities to fill the hours while your companions are whizzing down the mountain. These include ice-diving beneath a lake, nature discovery tours, snowmobiling, tobogganing, snowshoeing and shopping. There is also a world-class ice rink and a large swimming pool

 There is no shortage of places in Morzine to go for a drink or two but each bar offers something unique. From amazing apres ski spots to late night venues, there is something for everyone.

 Morzine was originally a traditional Savoyard working village and whilst it has retained much of its charm and character, it now provides its visitors with modern leisure facilities and an increasing number of boutique shops. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming with plenty going on and all just over an hour from Geneva airport.
