morzine

A great destination for skiers and boarders of all ages and abilities, this international ski area is the biggest in the world with 12 linked resorts and 650 km of tree lined slopes straddling the border of France and Switzerland.  Morzine is the heart of the Portes du Soleil offering the most convenient links to the best skiing.

more than just a ski resort, a charming village with plenty to do away from the slopes.....

Morzine is a picturesque village steeped in history and tradition situated south of Lake Geneva close to Mont Blanc in the Haute Savoie region of France. The architecture of the village is strictly controlled with solid chalets constructed from pine, stone and slate, materials traditional to the region. It is one of the most easily accessible alpine resorts, just a 70 minute drive from Geneva airport or 9 hours drive from Calais.

Morzine offers all the facilities you would associate with a modern resort but with plenty of options away from the slopes - English language cinema, ice skating, ice hockey, paragliding, health clubs, massage, sauna, excellent restaurants, bars and nightclubs. There is a Wednesday local market and a busy town centre which will cater for all your holiday essentials.

avoriaz....

This high altitude (1800m) car free resort was inaugurated in 1967 following the vision of 1960 Olympic downhill medal winner and Morzinois Juan Vuarnet who sensed the incredible potential for his home village. The resort is easily accessed by either the Prodain cable car or  Super Morzine telecabine from Morzine and sits at top the vertical cliffs of the Vallee des Ardoisieres, a truly spectacular setting.
