Morzine ski resort is a large traditional resort in the valley at 1000m. Morzine is the largest resort on the French side of the massive Portes du Soleil ski area. Ski to door is not possible in Morzine as the resort is located at the bottom of the valley and access to the slopes is via cable car and chair lift for most of the season.

Morzine has a very efficient lift network that enables skiers to get up into the snow quickly from the resort.

The Ports du Soleil piste network is large and Morzine is one of the main connected resorts within this network. The resort itself has a charming collection of old buildings and offers a varied selection of bars and restaurants catering to all tastes and budgets.

Morzine ski area has a range of attractive qualities that make it a great skiing destination. Firstly, it is very easy to get to from multiple airports, especially Geneva airport. Buses run from here to the ski resort, and driving takes under 90 minutes. Secondly, the Morzine piste map shows that the town is very low lying for a ski resort at 1000 metres above sea level. This is useful as it means the journey to the ski resort is an easy one, compared to the usual long winding roads that go up to the higher ski resorts. It also means the town is well equipped in terms of restaurants and bars, as there is a large number of permanent residents here. In addition to this, the snow reliability is good considering the low altitude, and there are snowmaking facilities to cover the dryer times. Lastly, Morzine is not far from Mont Blanc, which is a great natural landmark to be skiing in close proximity to for the fantastic views that are available. Aside from these unique features, Morzine provides some stunning, tree lined skiing. It sits near to a collection of other charming ski resorts, nestled in between the popular ski locations of Avoriaz and Les Gets. Morzine gives access to both of these ski areas, provided the snow is at an adequate level. Intermediate skiers will want to venture up to Avoriaz, where there are multiple snow parks, and fast paces red and blue runs. It also is one of the highest ski areas around, which makes for some excellent scenery. The dramatic views of the “Dents Blanches”, a harsh, jagged set mountain ridge, is a good enough reason alone to head to Avoriaz, if you are staying in Morzine. Just be sure to leave yourself enough time to make the return leg to Morzine or catch the bus.

For beginners, particularly young children, Morzine is very close to the “Nabor” kids ski zone, which again is a low lying, easy area to ski around. This is a useful area too, as it provides direct access to many of the neighbouring ski villages that cover the Portes du Soleil ski area such as Les Gets. The skiing around the Morzine area is scenic and relaxing, and almost all tree lined. The resort is most suited to intermediate and beginners. Overall, Morzine is a charming ski area, well connected and easy to reach. It is great for a weekend skiing, or alternatively a mid-week break, and provides gorgeous scenery and great access to the prestigious Portes du Soleil ski area.
