Ski Morzine and the Portes Du Soleil - The world's largest ski area
The sought after historical town of Morzine sits in the centre of the Portes Du Soliel, a snow-filled microclimate with more pistes that anywhere else, 9 snow parks and fantastic off piste. Morzine also has a great nightlife and restaurant scene.
Top 5 to Ski, Morzine.
- Ski across the border to Switzerland for lunch! Swiss fondue, rostis and Fendant wine here we come!
- Tour the entire ski area and try to beat the boss’s record : 1hr 55 minutes.
- Ride the Burton Stash, voted by CNN readers as the best piste in the world!
- Ski through and stop at one of the many mountain hamlets that are now clusters of wonderful restaurants such as Petite Lindarets (also know as the goat village) or Plaine Dranse.
- Ski the Swiss wall, agreed by all to be one of the hardest pistes in the world!
Top 5 Apres ski, Morzine.
- Wednesdays afternoon at the Tremplin is Basscamp. Expect DJs playing big and bouncy bass lines!
- Sample the Bec Jaune microbrewery it is our team’s favourite hang out!
- Get cosy in the vaulted wine cave at the Chaudanne, beware though there is a glass floor below you as you come in so dress appropriately!
- The famous Mutzig beer has got to be on your check list so head to Bar Robinson . Don’t drink too much though, it’s around 8%!
- Hide away in the wine and cheese cellar at the Charmade.
Top 5 Relax, Morzine.
- No 1 has to be Morzine’s swimming pool with hammam.
- In house chalet massages have to be a close second however!
- Snow shoeing gives you access to quiet pockets of the mountain full of nature. Either grab a map from the tourist office or book a guide.
- Lunch by the fire side of one of the lift accessable restaurants (i.e no ski gear needed) such as the Marais de Grenouille.
- Just chilling out at the chalets! They are all lovely places to spend the day with a book by the fire.
We love Morzine so much that Skiology Dom and Steph got married here!
