Morzine

The beautiful small town of Morzine is located in a valley in the French Alps, at the very heart of one of the largest ski resorts in the world – the Portes du Soleil. (Check out the piste maps)

Just 1hr and 20 minutes from Geneva it one of the easiest and quickest ski resorts to get to from the UK.

It has a 650kms of runs, more than 200 lifts, 7 parks (including The Stash), and 3 air bags so you can come back year after year and never get bored of it. It also has a fantastic snow record.

There are loads of big wide motorway blue runs, which makes it a great beginner area, but also plenty of more challenging slopes including the infamous Swiss Wall.

This historic mining and farming town has avoided the ugly tower blocks that blight many of the French resorts and remains a ‘real’ French town with a market on a Wednesday morning and a year-round population.

There are loads of shops and quite a few bars. It’s not exactly Ibiza but there is a good aprés scene with loads of live music and new for winter 2019 the legendary Folie Douce is opening up in neighbouring Avoriaz.
