Morzine ski holidays take you to a traditional Savoyard town lying in a valley surrounded by forest. at one thousand metres. Located between Les Gets and Avoriaz and part of the Portes du Soleil ski area, the resort offers a vast six hundred and fifty kilometres of piste which crosses the border into Switzerland. With such a huge area, the choice is enormous and caters for all levels of ability. Non-skiers can enjoy a break in the vibrant town with its many shops and restaurants, its cinema and bowling alley, while others in the party take to the slopes.
Low cost Morzine ski breaks.
Low cost Morzine ski breaks are sure to satisfy on every level as there is as much to do both on and off the slopes. Those who are new to the sport will find wide gentle slopes at Le pleney and also in neighbouring Avoriaz where the nursery slopes are close to the resort. Ski schools have an excellent reputation and with their help novices will soon gain in confidence and be ready for longer runs perhaps down to Les Gets. Intermediates have such a huge choice of reds that in two weeks of skiing they need never repeat a route. Advanced skiers have a choice of twenty black runs as well as some great moguls. If they feel up to it, they can try the World Cup downhill run from Les Hauts Forts above Avoriaz, an exhilarating run that is not for the faint of heart. There are of course many opportunities for off-piste skiing. Just be sure to take a mountain guide. Snowboarders have some of the best terrain in Europe with a total of seven snow parks, wide open slopes and powder bowls.
The ski season begins in the third week of December and closes at the beginning of April. Although the town is at a low altitude, the resort is fairly snow sure throughout the season. At lower levels there is a good supply of snow cannons. The summer months are popular with hill walkers, climbers, mountain bikers and those who merely wish to relax amid splendid scenery and enjoy all that the town has to offer.
