Description

 Morzine, in the French Alps, is located in the Rhone-Alpes region and boasts panoramic mountain views. The popular ski resort was traditionally a market town and lies at the heart of the Portes Du Soleil ski area, giving easy access to a fantastic ski area which includes Avoriaz and Les Gets.

Morzine benefits from being a year round resort, and is popular with mountain bikers in the summer. In the winter months it is a lively and popular ski resort, liked by everyone. The slopes are attractive, and with access to the entire Porte Du Soleil ski area, they are also extensive and offer something for all ability levels. However, advanced skiers will probably find the slopes of Avoriaz more challenging.

The resort itself is one of the more attractive (and well known) in the French Alps, as the buildings are mostly traditional chalets. However, some of the chalets do find themselves a bit of a distance from the ski lifts, but this is usually accepted because of their stunning locations, magnificent views and remote situations, which many seek out in Morzine.

For those who enjoy tree skiing, there are some nice wooded areas towards Les Gets. Families enjoy Morzine as there are plenty of gentle, sheltered slopes as well as plenty of after skiing activities. For the more adventurous, there are plenty of parks to choose from in the Portes Du Soleil area including the Pointe de Nyon and border cross in Les Gets, or one of the five excellent terrain (or stash) parks in Avoriaz.

For skiing early or late season, Morzine can be enjoyable as the resort will be warmer and will enjoy some sun (when it is not raining!). However, skiing will likely be limited to Avoriaz which should still see snow when Morzine sees rain. Snowmaking in Avoriaz has also improved drastically within the last few years.  The slopes around Morzine tend to suffer at the wrong ends of the season.
