Forming part of the immense Portes du Soleil area which stretches across both France and Switzerland, Morzine is a real stand-out resort.

Morzine combines idyllic tree-lined skiing and a picturesque town with something for everyone, whether you're looking to dance, eat or relax after a hard day's skiing. The Portes du Soleil region is criss-crossed with ski runs to suit every ability, plus there's ample opportunities for exhilarating off-piste adventures.

When you get peckish, take your pick of Morzine's 40+ restaurants which serve up everything from French fine dining to your classic British roast. More focused on the après? Morzine's nightlife is up there with the best.

Morzine is just over an hour from Geneva, making it a great spot for both quick ski weekends and longer trips. Hop on a flight out of the UK in the morning and you can be on the slopes the same afternoon. Keen to get moving? Get in touch over WhatsApp or Messenger and we'll sort you out.

Morzine ski resort

Overflowing with charm and boasting plenty of places to dine, drink and dance, Morzine is an ideal resort for a group ski trip. Morzine isn't just a winter destination, so the old mountain town has a solid range of shops, restaurants and bars which operate all year round.

Morzine has a well-established nightlife scene to take advantage of during your trip, however you'll also spot some cosier pubs and less rowdy bars if you're more about those low key nights out. The majority of Morzine's bars, clubs and restaurants are on the west side of the river, with a healthy number scattered along Rue du Bourg.

You can easily navigate Morzine on foot (even after a few drinks...), plus it's only a short journey on your skis down from Avoriaz if you're kicking off your après ski there (although the lift is very much recommended if you've been drinking).

Morzine après

The après ski scene in Morzine is one of the liveliest in the French Alps - think ice cold pints, shots of heady local liqueurs and table dancing to some absolute tunes in your salopettes.

Bar Robinson (Robbo's to those in the know) is Morzine's oldest and most famous après spot and it's located right on Rue du Bourg in the heart of the town. Next door is another staple of Morzine's party scene - Dixie Bar, a trio of fun, themed drinking holes all lodged inside one building. Ending your day at the Pleney lifts? Make sure you pop into Le Tremplin to party on their sun soaked terrace.

Those exploring the wider Portes du Soleil area can't skip a drinking session at La Folie Douce in Avoriaz. If you've got your eye on the Lindaret slopes, the bottom of the Ardent ski lift is the location of Happy Hours. It's always buzzing after 4pm, particularly on Wednesdays when they host their crazy 'We Are the après' parties. There's even a free bus back to Morzine if you're a little worse for wear at closing time...

Restaurants in Morzine

Morzine's status as an all-year round town means it has an established selection of amazing restaurants to try.

Save your cents at the decently priced Bec Jaune, a microbrewery at the top end of Morzine that serves up tasty pulled pork burgers and mac & cheese alongside its craft ales. Around half of their menu is meat-free, too, if you have any veggies in your group.

Prefer the sound of all-you-can-eat fondue? Put La Rotonde on your wish list and get ready to gorge on their huge menu of global delights. La Grange in Morzine's centre is a cosy spot to sample more traditional regional cuisine, while the Hideout Hostel just across the river hosts a different pop up restaurant every season - 2020's was mouthwatering Mexican street food.

Craving a big bowl of cheesy pasta? Authentic Italian Gusto e basta doesn't disappoint with their delicious pizzas, homemade lasagne and decadent desserts. And if you're after a slap-up meal for your final night, L'Atelier is one of the Alps' few Michelin star restaurants.

Morzine nightlife

While the après ski spots above are ideal boozers for beer before the sun goes down, it's likely your group will want to party on well into the small hours.

If that's the case, The Cavern is a definite pitstop on a Morzine night out. It's super central (meaning you'll easily be able to stumble back to your chalet afterwards) and hosts live bands and DJ's every night of the week. Take advantage of Cavern's happy hour from 4pm til 6pm or make it your last stop before bed - it stays open until 2am.

Cafe Chaud is another mainstay on Morzine's clubbing circuit. More modern than The Cavern, it transforms from a classy bar to a full-blown dance club after sunset. Feeling competitive? Challenge your fellow partygoers to a game of darts or beer pong.

Mountain bites

Skiing and snowboarding isn't just thirsty work - it also leaves you with a real appetite! Satisfy those hunger pangs at Morzine's myriad mountain eateries, none of which require you to stray too far from the pistes.

If you're planning on skiing on the Prodains runs just outside Avoriaz, spare half an hour or so to grab a bite at Changabang. Despite its name, it's actually an awesome burger joint that's built up a real reputation among fast food fans. If you'd rather take the opportunity to sample some local grub, Chez Nannon (an old alpine farm on the Nyon plateau) serves up sensational Savoyard dishes.

Checking out Les Gets? Quaint chalet-style restaurant La Paika provides panoramic views from their outdoor terrace on the La Turche slopes. If you've got a sweet tooth, don't skip the dessert buffet. More filling French food can also be found at Le Vaffieu at the top of the Folliets chair lift.

Morzine for non-skiers

Not everyone in your group a huge fan of skiing? There's lots to keep you busy beyond the pistes in Morzine, whether that's pampering yourself at a spa, diving into an indoor swimming pool or showing off your skating skills at the town's two ice rinks.

If you're set on snapping some snowy scenery during your trip, consider snowmobiling or paragliding across the mountains. You could also go old-school by hiring sledges at Pleney (available after dark, too) or get cosy in a sleigh pulled along by a pack of huskies.

Keen hikers will want to take advantage of Morzine's magnificent mountain trails by hiring snowshoes and setting off with a local guide. Morzine also has its own cinema that's perfect for lazier days or keeping any kids entertained.
