Morzine: Powder

Lively, long-established but lowish year-round resort, part of huge Portes du Soleil area.

Morzine is quite a large, spread out, long-established year-round resort that feels more like a town than a village. It shares with Les Gets a fairly extensive local network of gentle wooded slopes, so is a good place to be in a snowstorm (but be warned: it can, and does, rain rather than snow not infrequently). For keen piste-bashers wanting to do multiple tours of the Portes du Soleil circuit it is better positioned than Les Gets but is not ideal. But that doesn't seem to deter readers: we get reports every year from satisfied customers.

Morzine is as popular in summer as in winter and sprawls along both sides of a river gorge - though with the centre emphatically on the west side, at the foot of the local slopes. These are shared with slightly higher Les Gets (covered in a separate chapter). Across town is a gondola forming the link with a chain of lifts leading to Avoriaz on the Portes du Soleil circuit.

Our view that the resort suits car drivers is widely shared. But the roads are busy and the one-way system takes some getting used to. Car trips to Flaine and Chamonix are feasible.
