Nestled in the valleys of the Porte du Soleil area in the French Alps is Morzine, an excellent family resort for ski breaks and skiing weekends. It boasts plenty of snow with a varied number of runs; more aimed at beginners and intermediates, hence its popularity with families.

Arriving on a ski break in the area visitors will find a traditional market town with chalets spreading out across a river gorge to create a picture postcard ski destination. It is just one hour’s drive from Geneva Airport, making cheap flights from Jet2.com a great way to unlock this popular commune.

Great Views and Excellent Skiing in Morzine

Because Morzine is located in the heart of the Porte du Soleil it is hard to not appreciate the beauty of the surroundings. Rows of pine trees decorate the landscape that is blanketed with plenty of snow in the winter, making a ski break here as picturesque as it is adrenaline inducing on the slopes.

The many chalet-style buildings and alpine charm is the perfect setting for Morzine’s impressive après ski. There are plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from keeping a lively atmosphere going throughout the evening.

Visitors on a ski break here will find plenty of outdoor events to keep them entertained too. However, whilst the nightlife is lively it isn’t raucous. This is why Morzine retains a family appeal for skiing weekends and short ski breaks.

Excellent Choice of Slopes and Good Access

Morzine is better suited to intermediate skiers and snowboarders but beginners and experts are catered for. The resort has an altitude of 1000 metres and 650km of pistes, accessed by 206 ski lifts.

The majority of the runs are either red or blue although the Swiss Wall and world cup downhill black run will give the experienced skiers a real challenge. The off-piste is also great in this part of France.

Snowboarders have seven parks to choose from to practice their tricks. In fact, the Portes du Soleil was voted as one of the best resorts for borders due to the wealth of freeride, rails, pipes and cliff jumps available.

Discover More Activities on a Ski Break in Morzine

The beauty of the Portes de Soleil has made mountaineering and trekking immensely popular, which could provide visitors with something different and a little more relaxing during their ski break or skiing weekend in Morzine. You will also find a cinema and an indoor ice-rink in activities away from the snow!

Cheap flights to Geneva and Chambery from Jet2.com are ideal to unlock this picturesque part of the Portes du Soleil.
