Tips from Alice F on Morzine

We had heard loads about the skiing in Morzine but weren't expecting such a beautiful little town - that was a nice bonus. The clientele was largely British, which also helped - no communication problems like in some other French towns! And of course, the skiing in Les Portes du Soleil... need we say anything more? The only thing was we went during French school holidays, won't be doing that again, it was very crowded. But that's not the fault of the resort. All in all, a great skiing destination.

Access to the best ski area in Europe

I've been this year for the third time to Les Portes du Soleil, and this time we stayed in Morzine. The ski area is without doubts one of the best in Europe (in my opinion the best). The area is huge, I stayed for three weeks in Portes du Soleil this year and haven't even had time to explore all slopes. There are many fun parks and good off-piste opportunities. The atmosphere in the village is really fun and you have many après-ski possibilities. If you are looking for a ski area with lots of different options, Les Portes du Soleil is definitively one of the best options.

Great snow parks and endless slopes

Morzine is one of my favourite ski resorts. Some of the best skiing and snowboarding can be foud here - great choice from the 8 snow parks in the Portes du soleil. Star wars, Prolays and the Stash are the best. This seems the ideal ski resort for all kinds of holidays - loads of families around but also plenty of younger groups - some great apres ski too - lively bars, some cheap food - all round the perfect place to ski!

Research before choosing Morzine

Lively apres-ski atmosphere in comparison to some other French resorts and really pretty village centre. we've been to. Good choice of bars & restaurants (reasonable prices). Portes du Soleil goes without saying that the skiing was superb although snow a bit thin here and there - we were there late march! This meant we had to take quite a few lifts to get up high enough to get good snow - by the time we got up there it was almost time to start heading back! But guess that's goes with the big ski area! Keep a note of last lift times to not make the return at the end of the day stressful! You need to call it a day around 3pm to be sure to not get stuck! Morzine is a very Brit friendly resort so this is something to consider if you want to get away for a real change of scenery! Everyone is ether English or speaks like an English person!
