It’s not just its easy access from Geneva, in a little over an hour, or the 600km of skiing on its doorstep, but the French Alpine resort of Morzine has something to satisfy even the most demanding of visitor…

Morzine is a beautiful Alpine village at the heart of the massive cross-border Portes du Soleil region, offering visitors an authentic mountain experience. Rich history, heritage, traditional architecture and boasting an enviable gastronomy scene, Morzine has all the necessary ingredients for the perfect winter-sports holiday. So here are ten reasons why we think Morzine is a must-ski…

 

The 600km of skiing

Morzine is part of the huge Portes du Soleil ski domain with 12 linked resorts in France and Switzerland, offering a great choice and variety for skiers of all levels, including tree-lined runs, easy wide pistes, steep Alpine descents, mogul fields, snowparks and fun areas for children.

The fun doesn’t stop when the pistes close

Morzine has a lot more going on in the evening than most French resorts, including live hockey matches, night sledging and incredibly lively nightlife. For something different try a torchlight snowshoe walk plus mulled wine, or a trip to the Evil Villain’s Lair – a sophisticated Escape Room experience in which you get one hour to solve a series of complex puzzles in order to escape!

New family fun areas

So that younger skiers have a multitude of experiences and can learn to ski with as much fun as possible, Morzine ensures there are fun zones for all the family to ski! Another new initiative is the Mint Family snowboard camps, offering snowboard lessons for kids aged 3 years and up, for 2 hours per day over 3 days, plus quality accommodation in a fantastic catered chalet.

Eco-friendly accommodation and restaurants

As visitors become more eco-aware, hoteliers, restaurant owners and the local community are stepping up their efforts to ensure that this corner of the Alps is enjoyed in a sustainable way - from eco-conscious hotels and chalets such as the Dahu, Alpen Roc, Tremplin, Champs Fleuris and Alikat’s Chalets Mélodie and Harmonie to the on-site brewing and locally sourced ingredients of the Bec Jaune restaurant.

Lap up the luxury 

How do you fancy a rooftop terrace hot-tub? How about an indoor toboggan descending two floors into a games room? Or a kids’ climbing wall? An in-house barman? Home cinemas, hammams, saunas, private chefs, 360° mountain views and spa with Jacuzzi? All these and much more are available in Morzine – for a price of course – when a string of magnificent new luxury chalets open this winter.

Perfect place to try off-piste 

Who hasn’t dreamed of getting away from the pistes and exploring virgin snowfields or slaloming in between trees in a wild forest…  With freeride areas in Chamossiere and easy access to the Crozats bowl in Avoriaz, Morzine is a great resort for lovers of off-piste. New to off-piste? This winter the Morzine ESF is running a special Freeride training package for level 3 skiers aged 17 and up.

It’s brilliant for non-skiers

Morzine is a proper community with a real village centre where visitors can see many craftsmen and women working in the town, including a potter, a chocolate maker, a brewer and a cheese maker. Non-skiers will also enjoy horse drawn heritage tours around Morzine’s historic centre as well as snowshoe excursions to discover marmots, chamois, and learn about edible foliage.
