There are two main types of ski pass available in Morzine; the Portes du Soleil Ski Pass which covers 12 different ski villages from Les Gets & Avoriaz, all the way across to the Swiss resorts of Champéry & Morgins; and the Morzine-Les Gets Ski Pass which is just for the local Morzine area and includes Les Gets. All ski passes require a hand-free card (€3).

Which Ski Pass to buy in Morzine-Les Gets
Adult Pass An adult pass is for people aged 20-64 years (senior 65+ years)
Junior Pass A junior pass is for people aged 16-19 years
Child Pass A child pass is for children aged 5-15 years (under 5's are free)
Family Pass Family groups must comprise of at least 2 adults (or seniors) and 2 children, purchasing ski passes for the same dates and duration for at least 6 days
Duo & Trio Pass For groups of two or three adults (non-family) skiing in the Morzine-Les Gets ski area for a minimum of 6 days (not valid during the Rock the Pistes Festival in March)
Morzine-Les Gets Pass This is a local area pass which includes the whole of the Morzine & Les Gets ski area
Portes du Soleil Pass This full area pass gives you access to 12 ski resorts across 2 countries (France and Switzerland). It includes Les Gets, Morzine, Avoriaz, Champéry & Morgins

You can buy your pass online but if you are planning on having lessons, then it is also worth checking with your ski school beforehand to be sure that you buy the correct pass for your classes. 

Portes du Soleil ski-passes (Full area)

Most people of intermediate skiing ability and above would generally go for the full Portes du Soleil area ski pass, which incorporates 12 linked ski resorts and 650km of marked pistes. With this pass, you can ski in both France (Morzine, Les Gets, Avoriaz, Montriond, Abondance, St Jean d’Aulps and Chatel) and Switzerland (Champery, Les Crozets, Champoussin, Morgins and Torgon) and enjoy the full extent of one of the world’s largest ski areas.  

The Portes du Soleil pass is available from 5 hours to 14 days duration. If you are a regular visitor to the area, then a season pass is probably your best option. There is also a five-day non-consecutive pass available if you plan on making frequent shorter visits that don't quite justify a full season pass.

Ski Areas in Morzine

Morzine/Les Gets ski-passes (Local area)

It is possible to buy a lift pass that covers just the Morzine-Les Gets ski areas and pistes. This passes will suit you if you are a complete or advancing beginner, or if you prefer to ski at a more leisurely pace and don’t necessarily want to pound the pistes all day, every day.

Worth noting that the Super Morzine, Ardent & Prodains lifts aren't included in this local pass as they are part of the Avoriaz lift system and therefore require the full PDS pass to access. However, with 49 lifts and 64 pistes (approx. 120km) you will find a good variety of intermediate skiing, as well as a few more challenging runs to keep you occupied during your stay.

You can get discounts on both local area and Portes du Soleil ski passes when you buy a 5 day pass (or longer) before the start of the season. Save approximately -15% when you buy passes before September 30th (-10% on passes valid during school holidays) or -10% from October 1st to November 15th 2019 (-5% on passes valid during school holidays).

Late season
At the end of the season, the discounts in the Portes du Soleil are approximately -15% respectively, for anyone using the lifts after the end of March each year. You do need to be mindful that there may not be full snow cover at the very start and very end of the season.

Disabled skiers
The Morzine-Les Gets ski area offers a discounted rate for disabled skiers. The rate also applies to one accompanying person if the disabled person cannot ski alone.

Weekend Specials
Morzine-Les Gets and Avoriaz also offer Weekend or Saturday only passes at a slightly reduced rate. The slopes are also often quieter at weekends as many people are just arriving or leaving so it’s a good time to enjoy shorter lift queues and less piste-traffic.

Flash Sales
On Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the season (outside of the main school holiday periods & the Rock the Pistes Festival), the resort offers 30% discount on the online purchase of 1 day ski passes. Offer is restricted to 100 passes per day and only available to purchase online from the previous Friday.

Free passes

Children under five and skiers over 75 years ski for free. You will have to provide proof of age, so take along a passport when collecting your pass. The initial €3 charge still applies for a hands-free pass.

Cross-country ski-passes

Some of the cross country ski trails in Morzine are free to use but for the majority of them, you will need a specific cross-country ski pass. This will grant you access to the Pleney bubble and the Nyon cable car in Morzine, or the Mont Chéry and Chavannes lifts in Les Gets. From here you can enjoy the cross-country ski trails at altitude.

Season passes

Season passes are available for both the Morzine-Les Gets ski area and the full Portes du Soleil domain. There is also a special full area season pass for those under 26 years of age, the Border Pass. It pays to buy early, as there are some interesting price reductions and promo offers available pre-season. 

For the Morzine-Les Gets season passes, if you buy before October 31st you'll save -40%. Between November 1st and 30th the saving drops to -20% and, after that, it reverts to full price. 

If you're going to be skiing with your kids this season, then early purchasers can also benefit from 1 free child PDS season pass with every adult PDS season pass bought. The child must be 12yrs or under and the adult must be a direct ascendant of the child. Passes need to be purchased before mid-November.

If you can't come out for the whole season then there is also a Half-Season Portes du Soleil Pass option, which is available after February 8th 2020 at a significant discount on the full season pass rate.
