Morzine - the largest ski area in the world and perfect for mixed groups


Morzine has it all. In fact, it’s hard not to write an impossibly long list of everything it offers, for every ski level, type of visitor, group,non-skier.

Morzine itself is at the heart of the Portes du Soleil, the largest ski area in the world. There are 650km of pistes, across 14 resorts, across both France and Switzerland. There are pistes of every orientation, from high altitude powder bowls to beautiful winding tree-lined runs and limitless off-piste.

For beginners, Morzine is incredibly well organised with dedicated beginner pistes, wonderful covered magic carpets and an abundance of highly qualified ski schools.

For intermediates, you might just have your ski legs, but you can still adventure here. There are endless blue runs through forests, gentle sloping wide pistes taking you back into Morzine town, other pistes taking you further afield to Les Gets, Super Morzine and Avoriaz.

For advanced and expert skiers, there are challenges galore, from powder bowls, steep and deeps, forest runs, and epic ski safaris taking in as many of the Portes du Soleil resorts as you can manage.

The town itself is picture perfect with the old streets in the village centre largely made up of traditional wooden chalets set against a dramatic mountain backdrop. Off-mountain there is every kind of activity from swimming pools and aquatic centres, to cinemas, bowling, ice skating, ice hockey, and many cultural events organised by the town itself. Morzine also offers a vibrant après scene, its dining experiences are now varied and high quality and there are many weekly events such as the torch lit descent into town every week with free mulled wine and live music to enjoy, weekly markets and mountain walks, non-ski mountain sports, and spas and shopping for indulgent days.

Variety is the selling point. Authentically alpine, every group from a corporate ski group to a family ski holiday to a group of mixed ability friends will all, without question, have all their ski holiday boxes ticked.
