Morzine Resort Guide

The 650kms of marked pistes in the Morzine ski resort provide an abundant variety of skiing that can both nurture the beginner into their first parallel turns on the nursery slopes or challenge the most proficient of carvers on some of the challenging black runs. Some highlights that should be attempted are the rolling blues and red runs in the Ranfoilly bowl stopping for lunch at the excellent Le Rossettaz at the top of the Rosta chair. Mont Chery has something for everyone and can often be extremely quiet - don’t tell anyone.

Lindarets has many long runs of all difficulties that are served by fast efficient lifts and the sun-drenched bottom of the bowl has five excellent restaurants. To keep the hardcore happy: ‘The Wall’ can test the strongest of legs or the Snozone’s (controlled off-piste) will push anyone’s technique.

It wasn’t until 1981 that the 14 French and Swiss resorts that make up the Portes du Soleil were finally joined. The towns of Champery, Morgins, Val d’Illiez, Les Crosets, Champouissin and Torgon on the Swiss side of the border, with Abondance, Avoriaz, La Chapelle d’Abondance, Chatel, Les Gets, Montriond, Morzine and Saint Jean d’Aulps on the French side, make up the largest linked ski area in the world.

Morzine for Beginners      
Morzine provides a perfect place to learn to ski with ample blue and green runs. Close to your Morzine chalet you can find ski schools which meet directly outside the Pleney telecabine where they can walk across to two nursery slope areas. In Morzine there are two small green slopes with buttons lifts (TK Bouchet and TK Mas Verjus) where complete novices can safely learn the basic skills they need to tackle the mountain. The other area is at the top of the Pleney bubble where there is a small green slope at the top of the TS Belvedere lift. This area has a cluster of blue slopes around it where novices can progress as their confidence builds.

Are there snow parks in Morzine?
The Portes Du Soleil is a firm favourite with skiers and snowboarders alike seeking the thrills that boxes, rails and half pipes have to offer. The Les Gets Snow Park in Mont Cherie is full of kickers for all levels and has an air bag to hone your skills. Avoriaz is also home to the Burton Kids Parkway with low level rails, kickers and boxes for our smaller guests to have a play on as well as the world famous Burton Stash. The Stash is a natural snow park that runs through the trees in Avoriaz and mixes man made kickers and boxes with the naturally formed bumps and fallen logs. Finally Avoriaz also has Snow Park Arare that runs alongside the nursery slope. Although smaller than the Stash this area is home to kickers that would challenge even the most experienced boarder or skier.

Morzine Off Piste
The Portes du Soleil is often disregarded as a haven for off-piste. This often works in its favour, as the majority of extreme skiers and powder hounds head for our higher more famous neighbouring resorts. Subsequently when it snows here there is always plenty of powder to be taken. The tree runs off the Super Morzine are excellent fun as too are the Lindarets tree runs and the wide powder fields into Prodains. The Le Fornet sector also has the Marmotte Snowzone which is a safe off piste zone; here there is plenty of interesting natural terrain to play on for hours. It is imperative that you take all the safety precautions you can, shovels and probes and beepers can be purchased or hired. Speak to lift operators prior to going off piste as they will have a better idea of what is safe and what isn’t. To be extra safe professional guides can be hired who have all the local knowledge to take you to the best spots without sacrificing safety.

Cross Country Skiing in Morzine
There are 4 cross country areas generally accessible from Avoriaz and Morzine: the Manche Valley with 25km of challenging circuits, the Morzine-Avoriaz at Parc Naturel des Crêtes de Zorre with up to 47km for all levels, Lake Montriond with 10km of Canadian-style runs and the Pléney - Chavannes sector with 18km of forest runs. You will find ‘walking, Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing maps’ at the Tourist Office, alternatively lessons and guided excursions are available from the various ski schools, ask a member of staff for details.

It doesn’t get any easier
We have partnered with our old friends at Mathias Sports in the centre of the village to provide our ‘at home’ ski & board rental service in Morzine. Once you are settled in the chalet and have embraced the afternoon tea and cake that awaits you on arrival, a member of the Mathias team will pop by to fit your pre-booked equipment without you having to leave the comfort of your chalet. They might even share a piece of cake ! At the end of your stay just leave your equipment in the boot room. Can’t get easier than that.

Be careful of other suppliers offering great discounts online
We guarantee the quality of the equipment fitted in the comfort of your chalet and we have wrestled the price down to be extremely competitive. Others online might promise cheaper equipment but at what price ? is it available when you arrive? how far away is the shop and how do you get there ? how easy is it to change ? what happens when it breaks ? when do I have to drop the kit back ? Your time in resort is precious, don’t waste it sorting out your equipment.

Don’t forget to pre-book
It is ever so important that you book your equipment before you arrive as there is only so much quality kit in a resort to go round. Don’t worry that it might not fit perfectly or that you might need to change during the week, Mathias Sports are close by and next to the piste and lifts. You can book equipment on my VIP SKI shortly after you have made an accommodation booking, here is the list of guide prices. Alternatively drop us an email or call us for further guidance.

Possibly one of the most important aspects of a ski holiday, the lift pass is vital unless you plan to walk up the mountain before skiing down!

Pre-book your Morzine lift pass directly with us before you travel. Your lift passes will be delivered to your chalet before breakfast on the first morning, in plenty of time for you to make it up the first lift.
