With its proximity to Geneva, Morzine is a great destination for those looking for a ski weekend or a family looking to avoid the hassle of long transfers. Part of the huge Porte du Soleil ski region, there is plenty of terrain for all abilities, however due to its altitude early and late season snow coverage can be limited. The town itself is full of beautiful French stoned buildings and a delightful riverside promenade. There is a great selection of bars and restaurants and a great après ski vibe around the resort.

The piste skiing in the area is almost endless, from the nursery areas to the open pistes. There are also fantastic tree runs and the well renowned ‘Swiss Wall’ mogul run which straddles both the French and Swiss border. For the adrenalin junky Morzine has some of the best terrain parks in the Alps. If you are looking for a more Nordic holiday there are 4 cross country areas: Manche Valley (25km), Parc Naturel des Cretes de Zorre (47km), Lake Moriand (10km), Pleney-Chavannes sector (18km) to take on.
