Morzine lies between Mont Blanc and Lake Geneva and is situated in the Portes du Soleil ski area, offering 650km of skiing terrain and access to the Swiss resorts of Champeny, Les Crosets and Champoussin
Morzine is a long-established year-round resort, popular for its easy road access, traditional atmosphere and gentle wooded slopes. There is more to do in Morzine off the slopes than most other resorts, with a varied selection of shops to suit all tastes and plenty non-skiing activities, not to mention après options.
Across town is a gondola forming the link with a chain of lifts leading to Avoriaz on the Portes du Soleil circuit. Avoriaz in particular welcomes snowboarders and has 9 parks, one of which is a giant “ecological park” called the “Stash” featuring loads of natural lumps and bumps set off-piste between the trees.
Although Morzine is not in the most ideal location to explore the Portes du Soleil as it sits near the outskirts, (the area is best explored from Avoriaz), the local slopes and the effortless uplift to Avoriaz make it a very satisfactory resort which instantly offers abundant groomed pistes and off piste for every standard of skier.
Morzine not only has great skiing in a spectacular setting but it also has après-ski that will soak up every last bit of energy you have. The drinks are reasonably priced for a French resort and the typically French bars are jumping especially in happy hour.
