If you’re a complete beginner, or you’re advanced and love to test your skills, whether prefer the pistes or the more challenging off-piste, there will definitely be something you’ll love. If you’re looking to pull off some tricks and stunts, there’s also a range of Snowparks, where you can show off your talents and get some practice at your jibbing and kickers at the Baby Parks, before you move on to the Big Boy playgrounds that are the 10 main Snowparks themselves.

The whole ski area of Morzine enjoys exceptionally good snowfall, from mid-November through to the end of April, with an average of 8m of powder every year, so there’s plenty of time for a long trip..or even 2 if you fancy!
