You may not be able to ski back to your accommodation at the end of the day, but the extensive lift system means you'll make it home, whatever the snow cover.

Morzine is just over an hour's drive from Geneva Airport and is located the middle of one of the biggest ski areas in the world, the Portes du Soleil. The resort is filled with cruisy, tree-lined blue and red runs, and it's also linked directly to the ski resorts of Avoriaz and Les Gets.
