What's on in Morzine this winter
Our pick of the top Morzine events and activities for winter 2017/18
The town of Morzine forms part of the world-famous Portes du Soleil ski area and is one of our favourite destinations in the French Alps, for many reasons. The town's location, just 1½ hours' drive from Geneva Airport and less than 8½ hours from Calais, makes it one the most easily accessible French resorts, both by car or by air. Morzine is also an ideal base for access to the huge Portes du Soleil ski area, which ranks amongst the two largest ski areas in the world (the other being Les 3 Vallées) and offers well over 600km of pistes, with a variety of terrain to suit all abilities.
The other thing we love about Morzine is the town itself - ever since the first tourist hotel was constructed in the 1920s, the town has developed with its visitors in mind and still retains its traditional character and charm. Being a year round destination, Morzine also benefits from a well developed infrastructure, with eveything you might need for an enjoyable ski holiday, including a wide variety of shops, bars and restaurants, a convenient resort shuttle service and even a sports centre and large supermarket - ideal if you're planning to stay in a self-catered ski apartment.
Morzine always has lots of activities and events to suit all ages and this winter is no exception, so we've put together a few ideas to get you in the mood for your next ski holiday in this great resort.

Morzine, in partnership with the French Ski Federation, are proud to welcome the Ladies Night Tour. This original race format is specially designed to showcase female competitors, with some of the best technical members of France’s ski teams taking part!
