Morzine Resort

While the charming alpine atmosphere will make you feel like you've stepped into a traditional winter wonderland, you'll find that Morzine is a contemporary resort with all mod-cons. The huge range of shops, restaurants, pubs, clubs and off-slope activities pretty much have everything for everyone and contribute to the friendly, buzzing village life. There's more to do on and off the slope than you can shake a ski pole at, including loads of activities for non-skiers, and après ski is lively and varied.

Highly acclaimed as a family ski resort, the town has been stamped with the prestigious Famille Plus label by the French Ministry of Tourism. Kids are welcomed enthusiastically with child-friendly establishments and a great range of free activities including children's entertainment and snow fun for all the family. Childcare services are fantastic, ski schools are known for their excellent children's lessons and for a charming finishing touch, there's a merry-go-round.

Another family friendly aspect to the resort is the convenience of its location - only a 75 minute drive from Geneva makles it perfect for those who want to avoid a lengthy transfer. Morzine's attractive positioning doesn't stop here: the area lies in the very centre of the Portes du Soleil's 12 interconnected resorts which cover both the French and Swiss Alps. You can either ski with the local pass which gives access to 120km pistes in the Morzine-Les Gets area or get a Portes du Soleil lift pass and discover 650km of vast and varied terrain including 7 snow parks. This covers 12 resorts: Morzine, Les Gets, Avoriaz, Abondance, la Chapelle d'Abondance, Châtel, Montriond and St Jean d'Aulps in France and Champéry, Torgon, Morgins and Val d'Illiez-Champoussin-les Crosets in Switzerland.

Skiing/BoardingSkiing in Morzine

The scale of the mountain terrain is impressive and with the Portes du Soleil pass, seemingly endless. All abilities are catered for well and to top it off, you can heli-ski, speed ride and go night skiing on the Pleney.

With excellent ski schools and conveniently located nursery slopes, Morzine is popular for novices. You'll find lots of gentle greens and easy blues for snowploughing including Gernes and Proclo. Beginner boarders are in expert hands too: Mint Snowboarding is a top school specialising in snowboard tuition.

In keeping with its family-friendly reputation, even toddlers can ski in Morzine thanks to Babysnow - a scooter-meets-snowboard contraption which ages 1-3 will love. To inspire the younger generation of freestylers, there's the Nyon Snowpark which has small jumps, tunnels and boxes and a fun penguin themed area with banked turns, slalom and a tunnel.

Much of Morzine's mountain is intermediate friendly; whether you like tree-lined pistes, steeps, powder or a bit of everything you'll find a lot to please. Chamossiere has some great high altitude trails with a stunning 360° panorama of Mont Blanc, the Alps and Lake Geneva. The Arbis red run has a bit of everything: speeds, moguls, steeps and a pretty tree-lined ending. For advanced skiers, La Chavanette, more commonly known as the Swiss Wall, is known as one of the world's most terrifying runs and offers steep moguls for the adventure thirsty. Combe de Machon is a practically vertical black and you'll find loads of moguls, off-piste and cross-country.

As well as extensive freeriding terrain, the Portes du Soleil area has 7 snowparks (including a good one nearby in Avoriaz), 4 boardercross courses and 3 half-pipes that cater for all levels of freestyler.

Morzine Apres Ski

Because it's a great resort for those with children in tow, the high quality of après ski in Morzine is often overlooked. You'll find a lively, friendly atmosphere after hours with a good range of venues to suit everyone (and with fantastic childcare services on offer, even parents can sample the nightlife). In terms of places to drink in Morzine, Le Robinson is a popular vintage bar offering a relaxed atmosphere. Crowds tend to gather at the foot of the slopes to party in Le Tremplin while local beers and cocktails can be enjoyed at Aubergade. To experience Morzine's après ski at its height, book a ski holiday during the Rock the Pistes and Basscamp festivals in March or the End of Season Slushy Social in April.

With 90 slopeside restaurants, Morzine has a range of dining to suit all tastes and budgets including some lovely family-run establishments. Le Clin D'Oeil is a family and group favourite, La Grange is good for a fondue and if it's a fast-food hit you're after, Mamma's does great pizza and fish and chips to take away.

You don't have to be strapped to a plank or two to appreciate Morzine - there are plenty of alternative activities on offer. Have fun on the snow on a yooner, sledge, snowmobile or segway or try snowshoeing, ice-skating, paragliding or ice-diving for an alternative winter experience.

As expected from a top family resort, activities abound for all ages to enjoy some quality family time. Free children's activities are regularly on offer including arts, craft and entertainment. There's a fun sledge run down the Pleney where a tipi-dinner is served at the bottom and teenagers are kept entertained with a disco, ice-rink and 2 cinemas. In the centre of the village, you'll find a state-of-the-art leisure centre with 3 pools, sports courts, a gym and a well being area.

Best time to go

Best time to ski Morzine

When is the best time to ski Morzine?

Don't overlook Morzine because of its moderate altitude. Because the local ski area covers pastureland (i.e. grass, not rocks), it only needs 20cm of snow to be skiable. Morzine also has its own microclimate thanks to its proximity to Mont Blanc and is usually in fine fettle from December through to the middle of April.

The Portes du Soleil area has an average annual snowfall of 8m and slopes facing N, S, E & W. With 130 snow cannons in the Morzine/Les Gets area and 900 in Portes du Soleil, snow cover is provided even if the weather isn't up to scratch. If there's too much snow, head to the tree covered slopes for some sheltered skiing.

Have a look at our Peak Dates section to see the best time to visit Morzine. We also love Morzine during Bass-Camp festival in Portes du Soleil (14th -16th March) and the Rock the Pistes festival (20th -24th March). For a girls ski holiday, Women's Week (28th Jan - 1st Feb) is great while après ski lovers won't want to miss the End of Season Slushy Social (7th -14th April). If it's a quieter holiday you're seeking - visit Morzine in January and avoid school holidays.

Families in Morzine

This is one of our favourite family resorts and has France’s prestigious Famille Plus label to mark its excellence for family ski holidays. There’s some brilliant family accommodation to choose from, whether you prefer a chalet, hotel or apartment. Enjoy not having to lift a finger in our family-friendly chalets and hotels where all the food is prepared for you or opt for more flexibility in a self-catering apartment. We have everything from budget-friendly rooms to luxurious suites to suit all kinds of ski holiday. If you’re travelling with children who are too young to ski, pick one of our hotels with childcare or if your children are having lessons, book somewhere near the ski school meeting point.

The tourist office put on lots of free activities throughout to keep little ones happy – particularly over Christmas, New Year, half term and Easter. Morzine is an excellent place to take your children to ski for the first time with terrific tuition, convenient nursery slopes and loads of gentle green and easy blues runs. Little ones too young to ski are well looked after with various childcare options available – they can even enjoy their own kind of skiing thanks to ‘babysnow’ (a scooter-cum-snowboard that toddlers will love). The Nyon Snowpark is excellent for more confident children wanting to try some tricks and older children can venture to Avoriaz for a Snowpark at a higher scale.

It’s not just the resort and ski area that cater excellently to families – Morzine’s position in the Alps is ideal for a family getaway. Only a 75 minute transfer from Geneva airport, you won’t have to hear the all-too-familiar ‘are we nearly there yet?’ for long – book a package including accommodation, return flights and transfers for an easy journey to the mountains - they’re 100% ATOL protected. This is also an excellent place to ski if you’re planning to drive, as it’s one of the closest resorts to Calais – check out our self-drive packages including channel crossings. Look out for our accommodation-only deals if you want to prepare your travel independently.

GroupsGroup Holidays Morzine

Our chalets, hotels and apartments are the best in Morzine and make the perfect base for an amazing week on the snow. Book Chalet La Source if you’re a group of 10 looking for somewhere authentic where you can spend cosy evenings in an alpine home-from-home. All of our chalets are catered so you can really relax while meals are prepared for you. Hotel accommodation works fantastically for groups where everyone can socialise in on-site restaurants and bars. Hotel Le Cret is a large property with only a 6-8 minute walk to town centre and ski lift. For an authentic but cheap group holiday, stay in one of the Chalet Matine Apartments – they sleep up to 7 and have an ideal location on the piste only 1 minute from the town.

Wherever you all decide to stay, you can be sure to have a fantastic time in Morzine. Skiers and boarders of all abilities will find lots to please them in the local area and wider Portes du Soleil, whether you’re looking for somewhere to practice, glide amongst the trees, take challenging steeps or do some freeriding or freestyling. Any non-skiers tagging along for the ride can still enjoy the snow on sledge, snowmobile or snowshoes or stay indoors in a fantastic leisure centre, cinema and plenty of shops. The après ski is lively and friendly from cosy pubs to cocktail lounges, promising quality time together after a day on the snow.

Morzine is only a 75 minute transfer if you’re flying into Geneva - book accommodation, flights and airport transfers in one of our money-saving packages for the best deal. The resort is also well located for self-drive holidays and you can book accommodation with channel crossings in a self-drive package if you’re all planning to drive to the mountains. If it’s proving too difficult to arrange a journey that suits everyone, book your accommodation on its own and let everyone sort out their own travel.

"Skied here a lot, huge amount to ski in Portes du Soleil"

Rob and Jackie
4/ out of 5
If you’re skiing from Morzine, you can ski out in 2 directions. We’ve always had the Portes du Soleil Pass so I can’t say the limits of the piste but there is a Morzine pass and other local passes like for down in Les Gets. We like the whole area pass as if the snow isn’t so good in Morzine, we can go up to Avoriaz which is much higher so you’re snow sure as far as that’s concerned. You can either go towards Avoriaz on the Super Morzine bubble which means you’re going into a valley with loads of skiing. If you go to the Pleney bubble on the main street in Morzine, you can still get the bus which takes you up to Avoriaz. If you want to ski as far as you can in a day, you can go into Chatelle and into several linked resorts there. The skiing all over the area is variable, there are some nice green runs down from the Swiss boarder down into the Goat’s Village (Lindarets) and then you go up and across to Morzine. Before the Swiss boarder there’s a good red on the right and a couple of blacks (if they’re open which they’re usually not early in the season). Or you can go all the way into Switzerland where there’s the famous ‘Wall’. When you go over to Switzerland, some of their greens would be certified blue in other places and most of the blues are what you’d usually ski as reds. The quality of pisting in Switzerland is better than in France and although the pistes may be steeper, they’re much wider and maintained better so less confident skiers could do more turns to get down. That’s the really long distance option, but you can also just use the Morzine area. They’ve now put brand new bubbles alongside the cable car which is good, because when there used to be high winds they’d stop the cable car, but this problem has been overcome now. You can get across to a number of good slopes which vary from blue, green, red and black. Over to the right, back down the valley towards Les Gets is the big Les Gets bowl. If the snow is good over there, it’s absolutely terrific with a mix of different things to ski. It’s worth noting that some of the slopes that are classified blue here are actually bordering reds. There’s skiing through the woods so if the weather is a bit rough you can still find shelter. If you can get onto the internet, you can go onto the webcams and actually see what the conditions are like to make a decision where to ski each day. There’s a good selection of restaurants and stop of places on the mountain – any of the mountain places are really nice although they do get a bit crowded and being on the mountain you’ll be paying a premium for food. We tend to go down to Lindarets which is super – it’s the one known as the Goat Village beyond Avoriaz. Go up the Super Morzine link towards Avoriaz and follow signs to Chatel, go down into the second valley and Lindarets should be marked. You ski down to the bottom and get the bubbles back up. The green route is more of a blue as it’s in a valley which doesn’t get much sunshine so you do find it can get a bit icy. If you get Lindarets on a lovely day – it’s the best place to be. There’s no access for vehicles (you’re skiing down what would be the road in the summer) so they all use snowploughs and skidoos, we’ve done 4-5 restaurants there which have all been good. We’ve been here over Christmas and New Year on a number of occasions. It varies from year to year but Morzine usually has firework display/s and the normal skiing down the mountain at night of the instructors’ torchlit descent. You can normally get free Glühwein or hot chocolate at the bottom lift. There are often other events too, we didn’t go to it but there was an ice hockey game in the stadium. There are other public facilities available year round like heated swimming pools in the town and an ice rink (if the temperature is low enough as it’s external). Later in the season you can do the sledge slope which goes down the mountain.

"Loads of skiing"

Morzine is vast, there’s so much to ski there you can do a different thing every day. Avoriaz is really, really busy and I wouldn’t be pushing myself to get over there. Les Gets has some nice restaurants and stuff but it’s difficult to get back... you’d probably need to book a taxi. The people are lovely and generally very helpful and what have you. The snow wasn’t brilliant at New Year, we were lucky that it snowed a couple of days before we got there but by the end of the week the conditions weren’t ideal. The resort was quite busy but at New Year you expect it to be – during the week was quiet as usual but all the French come up over the weekend so it gets much busier then. My son was fine and had a nice French instructor teaching him to ski. They did a big firework display with all the ski instructors on New Year’s Eve and had a disco thing with a band and big bar in the square which lots of people went to. For people who don’t ski, go to the top of the Super Morzine bubble - the one that gives you access to Avoriaz etc. It’s about a 5 minute walk from the main centre of the resort but there’s a nice restaurant at the top of the bubble station which you can walk to, and it’s a lovely place to sit and watch people ski. Their speciality is Reblochon cheese which is delicious!

"Morzine in April"

Karen
5/ out of 5
The weather was pretty good here in April, we skied every day – it was fabulous. Both the French and Swiss side were fine nearing the end of the season. I found the whole area pretty useful for most levels, the Swiss side is really easy compared to the French side! Morzine is a proper town so there would have been a lot to do if the conditions weren’t good enough to ski all day. There’s a swimming pool, cycling, all sorts that you could do, and it has some great restaurants.

"Great for young families"

Nancy
3/ out of 5
Much more of a family orientated resort than a non-family resort. And it’s better with small children as there isn’t a lot for older children to do. It’s a low resort and the conditions weren’t great over February half term (we had rain, whereas when I came back in April there was fresh snow). However we managed to have a fantastic time even though the weather wasn’t ideal.

"Brilliant apres and a huge ski area"

Jenny Cochrane, Jersey

Morzine is lovely. There wasn’t much snow while we were there, which was a shame. The runs were quite short because of this and quite a few of them were closed. We went all over, we had to go up to Avoriaz a lot where the snow was better than down in Morzine. It’s a huge ski area and there’s so much to see and do. If it had all been open then it would be great for experienced skiers like ourselves. There are good parks too. It’s easy to get around the town and to find everything. The place at the bottom of the lift – Tremplin – had live music on Fridays and it was good fun. They did good cocktails. There is also a good pizza place nearby. There are some brilliant places to go out in Morzine.

"So much to ski"

Charlie, Greater London

Half of the group had been to Morzine before and we chose to return because of the size of the area, there are so many lifts and pistes over there. Considering it wasn’t the best season for snow, we got lucky and had a little snow in the week. The nightlife is good with some nice clubs and bars. I would recommend coming here – just go out and explore each day.

I would definitely recommend Morzine to families, I don’t know if we would go back here again, purely because we felt like after a week we had done it.

The actual skiing and boarding was brilliant, couldn’t fault it. The slopes are pretty varied. We stayed around Avoriaz the most, the snow was best up there. It’s good for boarders. The signage is clear as well. We would go back for the skiing, but not for the nightlife. For the size of Morzine I was surprised that there isn’t much going on. There are a few good bars though – there’s a nice café-bar just off the main slope with free olives and bar food which we liked. It’s a bit of a trek through town to get the lifts although there are buses (we didn’t use them much because we got impatient).

"Good beginner & advanced skiing, short transfer"

Chris & Ralluca, London
4/ out of 5
It was my first time ever going to Morzine and although I had nothing to compare it with, it was well above my expectations. It’s not a massive village but you’ve got a few superstores and there are quite a lot of pubs and restaurants to go to and have a meal. It’s a nice place for both beginners and advanced skiers. ESF do really good skiing classes which you can book in groups or private. They were always very well organised and the instructors were great. We were here in the middle of March and I was initially worried that it might be too late in the season and the weather wouldn’t be good enough. During the day it was 12-14 degrees and then during the night it was freezing... The snow didn’t have time to melt in the day (it did become a bit slushy at the end of the day but everyone was knackered by that point anyway). You can always find higher ski tracks if you want better snow. We only got the Morzine ski pass, if you want to go over to another resort you can upgrade for the day. You probably won’t use the whole area every day so it’s a waste of money to get the full pass straight away. Another good thing is that Morzine is not too far from the airport, it only took us one and a half hours when we flew into Geneva.

"We enjoyed ourselves"

"Great intro to European ski holidays"

Sophie Gerlach, Bedford
5/ out of 5
Morzine was my first experience of a European ski resort and it definitely won’t be my last! A charming alpine village, with a huge ski area and that all-important après ski buzz - you couldn’t really ask for more. Before rediscovering your skiing abilities on the gentle home-run, venture further afield to ski long trails sweeping through the trees and some steep terrain higher up the mountain before cruising down for that well deserved vin-chaud in a mountain bar at the base. The après scene is really lively with a number of popular bars where you can mingle with fellow skiers over a number of drinks - Le Tremplin was hot spot for younger skiers looking for a lively night.

"Morzine: A family friendly resort"

Aimee Bradshaw
4/ out of 5
Having spent 4.5 months in morzine, I got to know it pretty well. The town has everything you could possibly need- great bars within easy access of the slopes for that all important apres, a supermarket, shops and a market every Wednesday. There are buses to pleney, super morzine and nyon ski lifts which are very easy to navigate. There are also regular buses to Avoriaz and you can ski over to les gets very easily with blue runs all the way down. The best snow didn't come until January, but with such easy access to Avoriaz, there was still snow to ski in Decemeber. With weekly hockey matches from the ice hockey team, use of the ice skating rink when the team aren't playing, heaps of ski schools to chose from, a cinema that plays movies in English and a great atmosphere, Morzine is a super town for a ski holiday.
