Morzine, which is in the neighbouring valley to Avoriaz is part of the Portes du Soleil ski area. The resorts are linked by lifts and cable cars giving skiers and snowboarders access to facilities and runs in both.
The resort is suitable for all abilities, whether you are an expert or a new starter. With access to the entire ski area you can head to slopes at higher altitude which get the best snow coverage. The Portes du Soleil totals an incredible 650km of ski-able terrain, take a look at the following stats for a full run breakdown.

BEST CHEAP EAT
Located in the village and popular amongst chalet hosts, get fresh fast food to stay or to go from Mamas. Mamas offer fantastic value for money, get your meal from just $7 whether you are craving a pizza or a Thai curry, it is not one to miss.
Bar Robinson is home of Mutzig beer! Originally brewed in 1810 its taste has been perfected over the centuries since then. One of the oldest bars in Morzine, the bar tenders will water you with favoured Mutzig so we advise you to approach with caution!
We also recommend that you try out the local microbrewery, Bec Jaune, situated on the outskirts of the village brewing its very own craft beer along with producing its entire menu on site. Try out their home-made succulent pork scratching, delicious scotch eggs and more. You can’t go wrong grabbing a beer and a bite to eat here, it’s one of our favourite spots in the village!
