Authentic Savoyard Charm Claire Hamilton, Product Manager

"Morzine is a very pretty village and is one of my favourite resorts in the Alps. Access to the surrounding ski resorts including Les Gets and Avoriaz is very easy. It’s also possible to pop over to Switzerland for the day and ski Champéry and Morgins – a great way to avoid the crowds on peak dates. There are great restaurants and bars in town, ideal for a spot of après-ski."

Morzine Ski Holidays

Set in the stunning valleys of the Portes du Soleil ski area, lies the traditional Savoyard village of Morzine at an altitude of 1000m. 

Located in the very heart of the Portes du Soleil between the neighbouring resorts of Les Gets and Avoriaz and only 40 miles from Geneva Airport, Morzine provides easy access to this vast ski area offering up to 650 km of pistes. 

A traditional market village, Morzine exudes charm and authenticity whilst it's many bars and restaurants provide the perfect retreat for indulging in a spot of après-ski. You'll find a range of other activities on offer too for those who still have the energy!

Skiing in Morzine

The Portes du Soleil ski area is made up of 12 resorts dotted either side of the French/Swiss border and encompasses approximately 650km of pistes, offering an abundance of terrain for skiers and snowboarders of all levels.

When staying in Morzine, there are two lift pass options available. For beginners or those looking to ski at a leisurely pace, you can choose a Morzine-Les Gets only pass which gives you access to the Pleney side of Morzine as well as neighbouring Les Gets' pistes. The wide open area at the top of the Pleney lift is where the ski schools meet and it is a central point between Les Gets and Morzine - from here you can cruise back down gentle blue runs to the resort centre.

Morzine is linked to Avoriaz in a couple of ways: you can either choose to take the Super Morzine lift up and ski your way over to Avoriaz or you can jump on the bus to the Prodains gondola which will whisk you up to Avoriaz in minutes. The Morzine and Avoriaz ski areas are both covered on the Portes du Soleil lift pass which is a great option for those wanting to explore the full potential of the ski area and access the higher slopes of Avoriaz and beyond.

Thanks to its central location, Morzine is a great base for exploring the Portes du Soleil area and is well served by lifts going toward either Avoriaz or Les Gets from opposite sides of the resort (access between the two is via the resort's free tourist train). As such, staying in Morzine gives you the chance to check where the best weather conditions are to make the most of your day on the mountain!
