Ski Season Beds has made its home in Morzine and there are many reasons why!! Morzine is situated in the heart of the Portes Du Soleil region of the Northern French Alps and boasts a HUGE 650km of pistes over 12 linked resorts spanning 2 countries including France and Switzerland!! Morzine is located 1 hour from Geneva Airport which accommodates flights from many UK airports, there is also the new ski train service from London St Pancreas that rolls into Geneva so traveling to our beautiful town of Morzine for your ski season or holiday could not be easier.
Out on the mountain Morzine has something for everyone, from beginner to pro. Super Morzine, Pleney, Les Gets and Nyon have some great wide runs with awesome scenery, Mont Chery and Chamossiere have some long red and black runs that are seldom busy, and for the extreme diehards there’s the Swiss Wall on the Swiss border. The good news is that practically everything is accessible by chair lift – and there are hardly any drag lifts. There is a famous days skiing to be had also in the form of "the loop" this involves a very early start and includes all 12 resorts and 2 countries and a lot of skiing!!
Avoriaz is rated as one of the best free-ride skiing and snowboard areas in Europe with its great terrain, drop-offs, bowls and trees a plenty. For the freestyle riders there are two amazing parks and Superpipe. Check out www.snowzone.fr. Slightly further afield in Les Crosets there is the Super park, In Super Chatel there is the NIKE snow park and many more all over the Portes Du Soleil, we even have a world famous Burton Stash up in the trees in Avoriaz. A Mecca indeed, let alone to talk about the off piste terrain and endless back country areas. Be careful out there.
Morzine as a town is great, It is a seasonal resort in the Summer and Winter months but also has a large year round population including many French, English, Dutch and other nationalities. There are all the facilities you would expect and more in Morzine including supermarkets, Banks, bars, restaurants, DIY stores etc etc.It's like home from home!!!
If you decide to leave your car at home over the winter there is a free bus service which takes you all over town from 8am-8pm and its FREE with your lift pass so no worries getting home after a few glasses of Mutzig in the Infamous Bar Robinson.
So all in all Morzine in the heart of the Portes Du Soleil is the place to come on your weekly holiday or to spend a full season here working and playing. We hope to see you out here soon.
