Morzine is a long-established alpine town, surrounded on all sides by tall mountains, and sitting directly below the popular resort of Avoriaz. Unlike Avoriaz, and many purpose-built French resorts, Morzine still holds an alpine charm.
Located at 1,000 metres (3,300 feet), temperature is crucial to this resort as snow can quickly turn to rain. With a good snowfall, however, Morzine and the nearby resort of Les Gets will suffice most snowboarders.
The terrain varies from the long, wide, tree-lined slopes of Morzine, to a snowpark in Les Gets, to the more challenging slopes of Mont Cherry and Chamossiere. Whilst many may consider the slopes of Avoriaz superior to Morzine, this doesn't make Morzine the poorer choice. Quite the opposite. It's a great town with great accommodation options, and heading up to Avoriaz everyday, if that's what you want to do, is no problem.
