Skiing in Morzine
Morzine is part of the enormous Les Portes du Soleil, one of the largest linked ski areas in the world. It consists of 14 resorts and spreads from Lake Geneva in Switzerland through to Mont Blanc in France. In total it offers 650kms of high altitude slopes. With so much to choose from skiers of all ability levels are well catered for. Snowboarders can enjoy themselves too in the great selection of snow parks with half-pipes and hand rails, located in many of the resorts of the area. The villages are well linked by road and by piste, enabling you to clock up as much or as little ski mileage as you like.
The ski area is a large but relatively gentle area with many easy greens, blues and reds plus a couple of blacks on the Nyon side. Once you have explored the three major areas of Pleney, Nyon and Les Chavannes you can try out the runs on the other side of Les Gets on Mont Chery.
The top resorts in the Portes du Soleil include Avoriaz, Chatel, Les Gets, and Morzine in France, and Champery in Switzerland. The resorts differ in style, with the likes of Avoriaz offering bold modern architecture and a traffic free centre whereas Morzine is a picturesque old style Savoyard town with pretty chalet style houses and lots of character.
In Morzine you can drink and dance the night away if you choose to as there is a wide variety of bars and restaurants to choose from. The relaxed atmosphere of Dixie’s Bar is always a firm favourite amongst our guests, along with the Tibetan Café but the list goes on and on…
