Great skiing on your doorstep with plenty more to explore ...
The town of Morzine is in the heart of the Portes du Soleil, making the neighbouring resorts of Les Gets and Avoriaz easily accessible.
You can also ski in to Switzerland, but be warned, only the most accomplished skiers should tackle the Swiss Wall - a huge mogul field which is classified as an orange route - too hazardous for a black rating! But with 650km of pistes, there is plenty of scope for skiers and boarders of all ages and abilities. The ski bus stops near Chalet Ressource, making this fabulous chalet the perfect base for fans of winter sports.
If you're not a skier, Morzine also offers indoor and outdoor ice skating rinks, which are often host to ice hockey matches, and the local cinema often shows films in English. The more adventurous might like to try snowmobiling or ice-climbing on some of the area's frozen waterfalls, or discover the area in a more sedate manner on a sleigh ride.
Other ways to have fun include snowshoeing and sledging, while the Indiana adventure park offers a variety of activities for all ages. Back at the chalet there is a large terrace and flat garden, perfect for enjoying the winter sunshine with a cup of coffee and children making snowmen!
Walk on the wild side or enjoy the family entertainment ...
When the snow melts, the lush green slopes around Morzine become a haven for walkers, mountain bikers and thrill-seekers.
The lifts will transport you and your bike up the mountains, leaving you to come back down at your leisure. Take a picnic, and make a day of it! Morzine has earned Famille Plus status for its excellent childcare and entertainment, so it's the perfect choice for young families. There are superb water parks in the town and in neighbouring Avoriaz, as well as two summer sledge runs, while the Indiana adventure park has a range of assault courses to suit all ages.
Golfers will find excellent courses in Les Gets and Avoriaz. Other activities include climbing, rafting, via ferrata, canyoning, mini-golf, quad bikes, fishing and kayaking. You can also take advantage of the Portes du Soleil Multi Pass, offering unrestricted access to the full range of family activities.
Morzine is just the start of a great Alpine holiday ...
The traditional town of Morzine and the neighbouring resorts of Avoriaz and Les Gets offer plenty of variety for a holiday, whatever the time of year, but if you venture a little further, there's plenty more to discover.
The Portes du Soleil resorts cross the border into Switzerland, giving you two countries and two cultures to experience. It's just over half an hour's drive to Lake Geneva, where you can explore lakeside resorts the pretty spa town of Evian-les-Bains, or the beautiful medieval village of Yvoire.
You can take also cruise to other lakeside towns such as Lausanne and Montreux.
In Chamonix, just an hour's drive away, you can ride on the second-largest cable car in the world, and take in the spectacular views from Mont Blanc.
