Skiing Information

Morzine is a world-class ski resort in its own right, and the advantages of being linked to the high-altitude resort of Avoriaz, as well as being at the heart of the Portes Du Soleil linked ski area, are superb.

Morzine is a lovely town, and its main attraction is that it is a historical village that has embraced the skiing and summer activity market, while still retaining its village atmosphere.

It was one of the first French resorts to develop ski lifts, with the original Pleney cable car being built in the early 1930's. Morzine is now the largest townin the Portes du Soleil ski area, although there are only about 3500 year-round inhabitants!

Morzine's facilities are improving year on year, with the recent addition of the  long-awaited indoor swimming pool complex, right next to the existing Olympic summer pool and the Palais des Sports. Right now the Pleney bubble is being replaced with a state-of-the-art 10 person bubble.

The vast Portes du Soleil ski area is made up of 13 resorts in France and Switzerland, which combine to offer 650km of piste, and what we love about our ski area is that there are so many different aspects to it – the glorious south-facing sunny slopes of the Les Gets bowl, the family-friendly Nyon and Lindarets plateaus; the thrill of the crisp north-facing Avoriaz black runs, and the amazing endless runs of the Chatel-Linga valley...to say nothing ofthe fun of a slide over into Switzerland!

In Morzine we have the choice of 2 different ski passes: either the "Local" pass which covers Pleney – Nyon – Les Gets – Chamossiere – Mont Cheri; or the wider "Portes du Soleil" pass which covers all the above plus Avoriaz, Chatel and the rest of the Swiss resorts.
