Morzine

WHY VISIT MORZINE?

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.

Laden with trees amidst forest, Morzine offers gorgeous treelined runs and a lovely Alpine town situated in the valley. With two parallel roads running the length of the resort getting around by car or on foot is nice and easy, roads are well kept and there are buses which run between Morzine and Avoriaz.

There are two sides to the resort, Montriond and Morzine each with main cable cars running up the mountain. If you head to the Morzine side you will reach a lively town center, the Morzine ski area and après ski bars such as Le Tremplin. On the Montriond side, lifts will give you access to the Avoriaz ski area. It is worth noting that to access each you must use the appropriate lift as it is not possible to ski from one into the other. If you would like to ski both in one day it is approximately a ten minute walk across the town between the two cable cars.

Morzine is a fantastic place for you and your group no matter the size or age of it’s members, with family friendly slopes, brilliant pricing and a bustling town the location works for all parties. If members of your group are beginners then the high proportion of blues and easy reds to meander down will suit them well.

The Portes du Soleil has some outstanding off piste slopes, as well as nine snowparks in total, all of which are accessible from Morzine. This resort is the perfect place for those who would like to practice their flips and tricks this season then wind down in a cosy traditional alpine village in the evening.

Why not challenge yourself this season, Located in Avoriaz is Le Mur Suisse AKA The Swiss Wall, this run is classified as orange due to its difficulty (a level up from black) with extremely steep sections you’re in for an adrenaline filled ride. Upgrade your local area lift pass to a full area and get access to the run from Morzine. Test your skiing or snowboarding skills on the 331 metre vertical drop, one to try in the morning when your legs are still feeling fresh.

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.
