Morzine Ski Resort
For resort Coronavirus information please click here.
The large, all-season resort of Morzine has a great buzz and has prime access to the entire Portes du Soleil, as well as a pretty 120km of tree-lined local slopes.
The resort of Morzine sits right at the heart of the Portes du Soleil, with access to its vast network of slopes either via the Super Morzine gondola or a quick bus ride to the Prodains Express. There is also an excellent area of local slopes, which cover 120km and are shared with the resort of Les Gets, with access via Pleney on the west side of the village. The skiing here and throughout the PDS is ideally suited to adventurous intermediates, but there are also some great beginner areas and some decent challenges for advanced and expert skiers – including the infamous Swiss Wall.
Our only issue with the ski area is the relatively low altitude. Despite a lot of snowmaking, the resort runs can be closed, especially early and late in the season and snow quality can suffer on south-facing slopes.
Morzine is a large resort, filling much of the valley. This does mean that some accommodation is a walk away from the slopes, but what you get is a huge choice of places to stay, restaurants to eat in and bars to have an après drink at – lots of these are very lively, especially at weekends when visitors make the most of the quick transfer from Geneva to pack out the slopes and the bars.
What's New for 2020/21?
The remodelling of the red Aigle run going from the summit of Nyon at 2019 metres down to the Nyon plateau at 1413m which began last year will be completed for winter 2020-2021. The run will be 3 times wider with 2km of skiing pleasure! A new walkway has also been made in Nyon. At the summit of Nyon at 2019 metres altitude, the 10m long glass walkway offers a unique experience. There's a 350m drop beneath their feet and a breathtaking 360° view from Lake Geneva to Mont Blanc. Access is free and only possible on skis from the top of the Nyon chairlift.
