Morzine (Portes du Soleil) Resort Information

It's a world away from the hustle and bustle of modern life and yet it's one of the closest ski resorts to the channel and only an hour from Geneva. Morzine is an unspoilt, historic town dating back to the 16th century with its own Gallic identity, yet there’s a wide choice of restaurants and bars for much livelier and varied après ski than most resorts offer.

Savoyard style with its chalet style buildings, wooden facades, carved balconies and slate-covered roofs, Morzine offers more than 30 bistros and restaurants, including some of the best in the whole region. There are three discos, two cinemas, many bars and an ice-skating arena that hosts the world’s top skaters.

This artificial skating rink is also open for public skating and has a panoramic bar-restaurant. In addition a fitness centre with a weights room, sauna and hot tub has been installed in the Sports Centre. Sleigh rides are also available. The adventurous can try snowmobiling or ice climbing on frozen waterfalls in Morzine.

In April 2004, Morzine-Avoriaz’s ski-lifts received ISO 9001 certification - so a high standard and efficiency are guaranteed. 

Ski Taxi - Want to tour the slopes or try something new? Need to meet friends on the mountain or to share time on the slopes with your family? Then try the taxi-ski! This new service is aimed at non-skiers and seniors who might need help getting around on the slopes and who want to enjoy the thrill of skiing in complete safety!

Peak Retreats offers handpicked 3 and 4* Morzine hotels. Offering high quality accommodation and facilities, they provide the ideal base for a Morzine ski holiday.
