Overview of Morzine

Located in the heart of the Portes du Soleil ski area, the authentic alpine village of Morzine is only a short distance from Geneva. The resort has retained its old village charm amidst many recent modernisations with most of the chalet-style buildings retaining their wooden facades, sculpted balconies and slate roofs. Morzine provides easy access to the neighbouring ski villages of Les Gets and Avoriaz, both more than worthy of a visit whilst you’re in the Portes du Soleil.

Skiing and Snowboarding in Morzine

Ideally located in the heart of the Portes du Soleil ski area, Morzine offers a wonderful playground of 650km of piste. Ski-in and out of Switzerland at your leisure. A fantastic area for all ski abilities, it is especially good for beginners and intermediates who will enjoy the vast choice of comfortable, wide, cruising runs. The area is also very popular with snowboarders as there are very few flat areas or steep drag lifts.

At only 950m, many will consider this too low in altitude for a major ski resort, but the microclimate which exists between Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc maintains the snow and conditions at a standard much more familiar with high altitude resorts. Snowfall records are often in line with (or sometimes better than) Val d’Isere at almost twice the altitude.

Lift Passes in Morzine

There are numerous lift pass options, depending on which areas you would like to ski. The local area includes both Morzine and Les Gets, with an abundance of blue and red slopes over 120km of pistes. The Super-Morzine pass includes Avoriaz but the lift pass to access this additional area is more expensive.

To really make the most being in the Portes du Soleil, being able to ski in both France and Switzerland, plus exploring all the parks, events and villages, you should opt for the full area pass. It offers among the best km/£ ratio in Europe!
