What’s the secret of a great day out in Morzine?

Jarry Tripelon Morzine

Quality time with family or friends in one of the largest international ski areas in the world? Or epic landscapes, dynamic events and an authentic mountain village? Every visitor to Morzine has a unique experience, whether you ski, snowboard or simply relax in the sunshine.

Keeping it real

Morzine prides itself on a genuine Alpine character, with traditional restaurants and low-rise chalets nestled in exceptional countryside only 75km from Geneva. And as part of the impressive Portes du Soleil it offers 600km of runs (across France and Switzerland), 196 ski lifts and 287 pistes. Looking for adventure? Check out 30 snowparks, boarder–cross and ski-cross!

Fun on the flat

Morzine ski beginners learn fast with a brand new 200m canopy-covered magic carpet. Still not sure? The luxury spa, indoor ice skating and aquatic centre make great alternatives. Or free the mind with Sunday Wellness and Ski Yoga? Ten yoga poses to perform by the piste – plus spa session. See website for dates/times.

Free thinking

Feeling bold? The Free Ski Academy from the team at Easy2Ride Ski & Snowboard (endorsed by champion Xavier Bertoni) will have you Freeskiing in no time - thanks to a training air bag! Or pick up advanced rider tips from the experts. New: Morzine’s famous Stash Zone extends to SuperMorzine.

Famile Plus

Daycare at l’Outa is perfect for little ones (Sun - Fri), while older kids love Chemin des Zouzous – a 2km natural slope with life-like forest friends at every turn.

Nyon Snowpark

A fun snowpark reserved for children and beginners. The modules are smaller and include rails, jumps and banked corners to allow for practice in complete safety.

Boarder Penguins

A penguin-themed zone on the ski domain ? What’s not to like – and it’s the symbol of Morzine sports! Try out banked corners, slalom, a tunnel and a few whoops on the ice floe.
