With Morzine being situated only 70km away from Geneva Airport and right in the centre of the Portes du Soleil ski area you wouldn’t think there was much more to be desired from the mountain resort. But Morzine never fails to surprise having far more to offer along with its quick transfer times and large ski area.
Having our first couple of sets of non-skiing guests in Morzine this February we found no difficulty in recommending a wide range of activities for guests to do during their stay.
With journeys available from both the Pleney and Prodains lifts, non-skiers can feel instantly immersed in mountain life with snow-a-plenty, great views from the top of the Prodains & easily accessible walking routes from the top of the Pleney.
Though despite this, a bubble lift is not required to have fun in Morzine. Whilst being in the mountain, Morzine is the largest town in the Portes du Soleil and is fully stocked with all the facilities any holiday-goer could want.
These facilities include pools, spas, an outdoor ice-skating ring and a cinema.
The Palais des Sports in town does not only contain an indoor pool and a spa but its indoor ice-skating ring is home to the Morzine-Avoriaz Pingouins Ice hockey team who play every week in both exhibition and division matches.
Having gone to watch the Pingouins play for the first time last week as they faced up against Megeve it became clear that it was an experience that cannot be missed by anyone coming to Morzine.
The fast paced and aggressive sport kept the spectators entertained from the onset and throughout with crowds of over a thousand people gathering in the Skoda Arena to create an exciting atmosphere.
