“Loved it!”
Reviewed 27 May 2011

Had stayed in Avoriaz before but never Morzine and was sold. It's got a real village feel, lots of restaurants and bars and the best of all world's skiing wise - stay in Morzine/Les Gets or get the lift up to Avoriaz - the skiing is varied and has something for everyone. If skiing in Avoriaz though, keep an eye on your watch to make sure you time your runs down with the last lifts.

“Chalet Nyon Morzine”
Reviewed 12 January 2011

Stayed at the Chalet Nyon and travelled with Alpine Elements - both good. The chalet was average but the hosts made up for this with good food and were good fun to have around. The chalet is right next door to the Nyon cable car and has 2 bus routes nearly on the doorstep, so a good place for ski communications but a 20 minute walk into town after 6pm. Night-owls beware!
We hadn't skied in Morzine before but hit it at New Year 2011 when the weather was cold and the snow conditions great (I gather due to its low altitude snow here is not always reliable). The routes over to Les Gets and Avoriaz are painless and offer great skiiing of all varieties. You can ski into Switzerland but I couldn't quite see why I would bother returning - with their extremely expensive and not that nice restaurants and lifts that belonged to the last century, or even the one before that! All that could be said was their scenery was the best with the Dents du Midi and Dents Blanches and views over to Lac Leman. They also had the scariest black called the Wall - which really is vertical!

“A winter wonderland that stepped up to the mark”
Reviewed 26 December 2010

We visited Morzine for the first time Dec 2010 and what a great place. We stayed in a chalet called Chamois D'or just up by the cable car nyon and had great views of the mountains and ski slopes. This trip was a xmas markets trip and organised by Phoenix Holidays who arranged everything brilliantly. The chalet was beautiful and well run by Grant and Ashley our hosts. The food was great and plentiful too. Morzine was a buzzing little town already and the season was only just beginning with the first real snow on the night we arrived. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from and despite the continual snow the roads were kept open and clear at all times with snow ploughs and snow blowers on the go continously. We could learn a lot from these guys thats for sure! Of course english is spoken at most places which is great to make up for our hideous french. I would particulary recommend trying a raclette (sorry if its spelt incorrectly). This dish is basically cheese next to a heater which melts and you scrape it off and pour it over cold meats and potatos and is not for the calorie concious, we had this at a restaurant called L'Etale and it was about 22 euros each but was worth every cent. This was an all you could eat job and so the meat kept coming and the cheese kept melting (what a lunch). The town has every thing you could want including to the untrained eye great looking skiing at every turn. Morzine is a picture postcard of mountains and wooden chalets and even though its not the most expensive and popular resort it certainly holds its own with value for money all round (unlike Swiss resorts which are just so expensive). We will be going back 2012, hopefully to Chamois D'or but all the chalets looked comparable, to have a go at skiing and snowboarding. God help us!!!

“Good Ski”
Reviewed 1 March 2009

A family of 7 set out for Morzine in the feb half term to attempt some skiing! (first time for some of the group). Flew the short flight to Generva, transfered by mini-bus to the resort of Morzine. Beautiful place and plenty of snow and sunshine made this a truly amazing holiday. Great place for families with all aged children, ski school ESF catered for all skill and ability. The Portes du Solieul which is the mountain region had enough mixed ability runs to keep everyone happy.
Booked through the company snow & trek, excellent accomodation in a self catering chalet, brilliant facilities and not far from all amentities. Walking distance to the ski schools (about 20 mins).
We booked ski hire through mountainrental.com before we went and the equiptment arrived within half hour of our arrival, Joe was cheerful, helpful in fitting boots and skis, throughly marvelous service. Good apreski bars we did only stay for a couple on our way home as we were all tired.
I would go again to Morzine and would strongly recommend it to anyone.
