Morzine is a French ski resort nestled in the expansive Portes du Soleil; one of France’s largest interconnected ski areas. A pretty and traditional mountain town at heart, Morzine sits just a 1-hour transfer from Geneva airport. With 100km of pistes in the local area and 400km across the Portes du Soleil there’s terrain suitable for all levels.

Morzine sits at an altitude of 1,000 metres, which is low compared to many resorts in France. But swift lifts and regular free bus links to high-altitude Avoriaz mean visitors to Morzine can enjoy the traditional feel and friendly après ski, yet still have easy access to slopes at 1,800m plus.

From the Pleney gondola, skiers in Morzine have a wealth of beautiful tree-lined runs to explore — both on the Morzine side and over in neighbouring Les Gets. For kids learning the ropes, it’s the perfect place to start. Mile-hungry skiers can zoom over to Les Gets and Mont Cherie (home to a fine snow-park), then tackle Morzine’s steep home run on route up to Avoriaz.

Morzine treads a fine line between attracting families with children as well as groups in search of après ski. You won’t find as many vibrant bars as bigger resorts like Val d’Isere or St Anton have to offer, but it’s a lively little spot nonetheless with most of the late-night venues set out along the high street. In short, there’s something for everyone here.

On the accommodation front, Morzine offers a wonderful mix of independent chalets (where travel is arranged separately) alongside a strong selection of package-run properties. With everything from basic 2* up to luxurious 6* chalets and hotels, you’re sure to find just what you’re looking for.
Apres ski isn’t one of Morzine’s biggest draws but there’s certainly more than enough bars to try out, to keep visitors entertained when the skiing is done for the day.

Craft beer bars such as Bec Jaune tantalize the taste buds with a fine range of craft beer offerings, and the Tremplin is a popular spot for thumping music and lively apres. Elsewhere, Dixie Bar and la Crepuscule are great places to wet your whistle, and l'Opera Nightclub keeps the party going till the wee hours. The Tibetan Café plays classic rock till late, and Bar Robinsons sells Mutzig Old Lager — but be careful, it’s super-strong!
Aside from the gentle learner terrain, Morzine attracts families with children for the broad range of non-ski activities on offer. If you fancy taking time away from the slopes, Morzine is a wonderful place to explore.

Nature-lovers can follow winding hiking trails through dense forest, thrill-seekers can parapente from the top of Avoriaz’ mighty cliff and, down in town, those in search of a little light retail therapy can browse a massive range of shops and boutiques. Arts and crafts shops sit next to traditional bakers, chocolatiers and butchers shops, and you can browse the latest si gear in the resort’s many well-stocked ski and snowboard shops.

Here’s a few ideas for non-ski activities in Morzine, to give a flavour of what’s on offer.

Across the resort, Morzine’s child-friendly facilities are exceptional. The Piu Piou garden is an enclosed nursery slope near the base of the Pleney gondola where youngsters can practise their first turns under the watchful eye of their ski instructors, and for those too young to ski there’s a nursery too.

Nearby, you’ll find a toboggan slope perfect for using up the last of the kids’ batteries before heading back to the chalet for dinner. Don’t be surprised if your youngsters end up preferring the toboggan slope to the pistes – it’s a LOT of fun!

For easy travelling around Morzine, a little road-train runs round the resort whisking skiers across town to the various lifts in safety. Even if you’re not planning on hitting the slopes, the road train is a great way to keep youngsters entertained off the snow.

Lastly, Morzine has a wide range of childcare and nanny services — both in-house and bookable separately. Companies to look out for include; Cheeky monkeys, Happy Feet and Jack Frosts.
