The Week in General
Jacques and myself left Norwich for Geneva on Saturday the 25th Feb for our first winter holiday, what a surprise we had when we got to Morzine. Snow, snow and more snow. After a rather disorganised rush around at Geneva airport, I thought the Swiss were an organised bunch, we were collected by our transfer to the village of Morzine.
Thu 30 October 2003 by ScrotumMorzine is a wicked town that has a very relaxed vibe. It is an old town so it is much prettier than Avoriaz and since it is not a purpose built ski resort but a working town the beers are not hyper inflated. This also goes for the accomodation which there is shit loads of. Try sugar mountain 500 mtrs from the pub and 300mtrs from the nightclub on www.sugar-mtn.com. The only times that you will have any real problems finding decent accomodation is at 1/2 term and New Year (the pistes are packed then as well).
There are 650km of pistes to roam in the portes du soleil and you can get a pass to cover the lot. You can visit 12 different resorts for a lunch time meal or even stay over if you like (need to pre arrange it usually).
There are usually 5 differnet parks to ride on from small beginner ones in Mont Cheri, Avoriaz and Chatel to the big ones in Avoriaz and Les Crozet.
Nightlife is great since there are loads of bars and 2 nightclubs. Most people go to Dixies in the centre of town to start their night off. Hope to see you there. Ben
