Been riding now for a little over 7 years and in the last 6 have had a place over in Morzine. As the town itself is not a purpose built ski resort, it has managed to keep its charm as the village (or should I say, town) and isn't spoiled by tourism. The boarding over on the Pleney side isn't the greatest. Ideal for beginners etc and there are a few good off- pistes that you have to look out for (Pointe de Nyon, from the top, being one of them). As you head over to the Swiss (Avoriaz) side there are a lot more advanced slopes and some great snow-parks. However, the one problem is getting back. It gets pretty busy during the end of the day and sometimes it can be a struggle to get the last gon...

We have now been to Avoriaz for the past 4 years and we are finding it hard to book a ski holiday anywhere else. We ski with our 4 kids and both of our dads and resort is perfect for all of us. For the kids you couldn't find a better ski school than Village des Enfants, such a special place and the kids have loved being with kids from all over, not just a bunch of brits! My husband is a boarder and there is a huge array of parks from the green trashers to the stash in the woods, a huge halfpipe and that doesn't even count the main one! This is just in Avoriaz, and you can ski the whole Portes de Soleil. Even last year when the snow wasn't great we were never short of high snow covered slopes...

Lovely town located near the Swiss Border , you actually ski half the time in France and half the time in Switzerland . It had'nt snowed for a while but the pistes were still good Great resort for beginners and intermediates , the most challenging run is "the Wall" which is steep with really big moguls . Accomodation was good and the apres livley , especially the Budha Bar . Downside is getting on to the piste from Morzine to Avoriaz takes a while and is easy to miss the last lift back and then there is a bus or a 50 euro taxi ...

A resort in the excellent ski region of Portes du Soleil. This is perhaps the best location to stay in this region if you don't have a problem with not being able to ski to the door of your apartment/hotel. Just a few hotels and apartment buildings are located on the pistes. It's location is excellent because of it's central position in the ski region. You basically have two possibilities to start your skiing tour. You can either go to the 'house mountain' ski area of Pleney which connects to the large ski area of Les Gets (also part of the Portes du Soleil ski region), a area with mostly gentle blue and red runs. Or you can go up the other side of the valley towards the more challenging sk...

Visited Morzine last year had stayed in Avoriaz a couple of years before and skied across and then over to Les Getz and realised what wonderful area it is. We took our wee boy for his first lessons (age 6)to the French Ski School they were fantastic (all English Speaking). Great family resort. Massive area lots of levels and options from A-B so great place to go if with a mixed ability group. Lots of mountain restaurants. It was the last week of the season and the resort was closing but the snow was still great. It was a real shame. Massive snow ball fight at Le Viking. People were coming out of the pool to join in. MAGIC ...
