About the Summer Lift System in Morzine
In summer the huge network of resorts linked together in the Portes du Soleil area are accessible by lifts, linking together the villages of Morzine, Les Gets, Avoriaz, Chatel, Lindarets, Champery, Champoussin, Torgons, Morgins and Les Crosets.
Pretty much all of the 24 chairlifts and cable cars in the area are equipped to carry bikes in the summer so you can roam the region at your leisure. The resort has a MTB specific lift pass for bikers, giving you access to all of the Portes du Soleil bike lifts.
Pedestrians have access to the same network of lifts, and you can traverse the Portes du Soleil quite happily by using them. Just be mindful of the times of return lifts, as you wouldn't want to get stuck over in Switzerland with no easy way of getting back!
Lifts will stop running in the case of high winds of bad weather but you can check on this before you head out by looking at the live lift status.
In Summer, the Summer Lift Pass Prices and the Summer Lift Pass Options are slightly different, with some lifts open to pedestrians or mountain bikers only and others open to both pedestrians and mountain bikers - it is worth checking the which lifts you can use before setting off. Paragliders also have access to a number of lifts throughout the summer.
Open in both the winter and summer season you can use the lift system to access all the different areas of the Portes du Soleil region, giving you the opportunity to enjoy all the Winter and Summer activities the mountains have to offer.
