Morzine is regarded as the capital of the Portes du Soleil ski area. It can be described as a traditional market town and manages to keep its charming village authenticity all the while offering a wide range of hotels, bars and restaurants as ski holiday facilities, keeping to the skiing holiday aspect. The resort is popular during all seasons, as it offers a range of both summer and winter activities. As there has been a considerable amount of investment in snowmaking and lift infrastructure, this has enabled queues to decrease, thus making Morzine an even more enjoyable place to go skiing.
As well as skiing, Morzine offers a wide variety of other activities, such as ice skating, snowmobiling, ice climbing and tobogganing.
Towards the end of the season, Morzine hosts the renowned “Rock the Piste Festival” which takes place on the slopes, and in nearby Avoriaz, the Snowboxx festival is also an all-time favourite.
