How to get to Morzine

Closest international airports and best access to the Ski resort

Updated over a week ago

The French Alpine town of Morzine is located in the "Portes du Soleil" ski area, on the road to Avoriaz, half way between the Mont Blanc and the Lake Geneva (Lac Leman). The Portes du Soleil is not only one of the largest ski areas in the world; it is also one of the most snow sure which has consistently recorded amongst the largest individual snowfalls and deepest snow depths in Europe, throughout the season. Morzine, at the heart of the Portes du Soleil, sits at an altitude of 1000m and its easily accessible sister resort Avoriaz at 1800m, however a common misconception is to judge the Portes du Soleil purely on altitude…
