Morzine: pure authenticity
One of the oldest ski resorts in France, Morzine has preserved all its charm of yesteryear. Hiring skis in this village will let you get a sense of the typical way of life in Haute-Savoie.
A historical resort
Having opened in 1934, the ski resort of Morzine has preserved all its charm, with its typical wooden chalets topped with slate roofs. Nestled in the Aulps Valley between Mont Blanc and Lake Geneva, it provides access not only to the Morzine-Avoriaz ski area, with its 34 ski lifts and 49 mostly blue runs, but also to Les Portes du Soleil. This is one of the largest ski areas in the world, with 600 km of runs and 197 ski lifts.
Good to know: Family Plus label
Morzine received the Family Plus label thanks to its wide variety of facilities, its entertainment for all ages and its ski hire outlets, which are located right in the centre and offer a range of equipment for the whole family.
