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."

Skiing in Morzine

When staying in Morzine, there are a number of lift pass options available. For beginners or those looking to stay in the Morzine area, also known as Pleney, you can choose a Morzine only pass. Thanks to the wide open area at the top of the Pleney lift, this is where the ski schools meet and is a central point between Les Gets and Avoriaz, 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 instead you can jump on the bus to the Prodains gondola which will whisk you up to Avoriaz in minutes. The Morzine and Avoriaz ski area is covered on the Morzine/Avoriaz pass which is a good option for intermediates. If you're wanting to explore the full potential of the Portes du Soleil area, you can purchase one lift pass which covers all 14 resorts, dotted either side of the French/ Swiss border. 

Thanks to its central location Morzine is a great base for exploring the Portes du Soleil and is well served by lifts going toward either Avoriaz or Les Gets. As such it offers skiers the chance to check where the best weather conditions are to make the most of their day on the mountains.
