Mountain bike passes
For many people, summer in Morzine is all about the mountain biking, which is understandable as the resort sits in the heart of one of Europe's best MTB areas – the Portes du Soleil. Whilst there are a number of paths setting off from resort, in order to make the most of the 650km of marked trails, you need to use the lifts.
Nearly all of the chairlifts and cable cars in the area are equipped to carry bikes in the summer so you really can roam 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. Passes can be bought on a daily basis or savings can be made by purchasing a longer duration ticket – 6 days or a season pass. Reductions are available for children and seniors or anyone holding a Winter Season Portes du Soleil Pass who can claim a 50% reduction on their Summer pass.
