PERFECT FOR EVERYONE
The skiing and snow boarding in and around Morzine really is perfect for everyone whether it’s your first time on the slopes or your 100th (!) There are, literally, hundreds of tree-lined blue runs and mountain top reds to choose from as well as a multitude of testing black runs, snow board parks and off-piste trails not forgetting, of course, the legendary ‘Swiss Wall’ down into Switzerland for those who want to test their skills to the limit.
The beginners slopes in each of the main resorts of Morzine, Les Gets and Avoriaz are all easy to meet up at after lessons if your party is of mixed abilities and there are so many lovely mountain restaurants and cafés to enjoy a hot chocolate or a vin chaud or linger over a gourmet Savoie lunch.
The chalet is in a wonderful location as it sits at the heart of the vast Portes du Soleil region which is one of the largest ski areas in the World with up to 2460m of ski pistes and an overall 650km of ski terrain. We are just 4 km to the lifts at Morzine, Avoriaz, Les Gets or Mont Chery just 5 minutes from the chalet at Le Col de l’Encrenaz, so the choice of where you ski each day is yours!
Ski du Fond and Snow Shoeing
There are hundreds of beautiful mountain and valley trails to discover all around Morzine and Les Gets if you feel like trying cross country skiing or snow shoeing as an alternative to downhill skiing. Equipment is easy to hire in resort and the walks around the Lac de Montriond or the Valley de la Manche are spectacular.
