Portes du Soleil

Morzine sits at one end of the Portes Du Soleil, 650km of piste within an area which encompasses both France and Switzerland offering the chance to ski/snowboard the two countries all on the same day. With both Prodain and Pleney cable cars replaced in the last few years these high speed lifts will make for a speedy start to your day.

It is a perfect location for skiers and snowboarders of all abilities. Beginners are well catered for with relaxed, wide-open and gradual slopes to gain confidence quickly.

Experienced skiers have a large choice of red and black runs with access to the back and side country if you are inclined to seek un-tracked powder fields.
