Ski Holidays In Morzine
As well as being a ski resort, Morzine is an established Alpine town. This gives it a great traditional feel and also means that there are a wealth of activities to do besides skiing. The town is quite large and sits in the base of the valley; with one side taking you up towards Avoriaz and the other towards La Pléney it is well positioned to explore the extensive Porte du Soleil ski area. The resort is a great all-rounder and really does have something for everyone. You would be hard pressed to find a resort that can offer the extent of attractions in one place.
About the Skiing and Boarding in Morzine
The local ski area is a fair size and its mostly wooded so can be a great place to shelter if the weather is bad. The village nursery slopes are wide and incredibly convenient for those who are skiing for the first time and with over 600km of marked runs the Port du Soleil can offer anything that the local area might be missing. There are many cruisy blues and reds for intermediates, as well as the opportunity to ski over the border into Switzerland. Experts will enjoy the plenty of serious off piste and can also enjoy the challenge of the Le Pas de Chavanette, also known as the "Mur Suisse" or "Swiss Wall". This piste is classified as too difficult to be a black and is therefore classified as an “Orange”. It starts with a 40°
gradient and is usually covered with very large moguls. Be sure to check out the Stash which was an open plan winter playground, with all natural terrain, including tree houses and picnic tables. Its great fun no matter what your ability may be.
Après Ski in Morzine
Most of the bars at the bottom of the pistes get busy as the slopes empty creating a lively atmosphere. There are also some great pubs and restaurants for those looking for a more relaxed plkfjhfirnace to enjoy the afternoon. The resort is great for families with a load of activities on offer after skiing including ice skating, swimming and tobogganing. Morzine even has its own ice hockey team “Les Penguins” who play most weeks at the local stadium, it can be a great spectacle but tickets can sell out quickly.
