Covid-19 : How Morzine is preparing for your winter holiday in Safety

Here is the latest information updated on our website
Accommodation & Booking
Morzine has a wide range of independent accommodation providers that are working together to agree specific cancellation conditions concerning the sanitary situation. If Morzine and Avoriaz are both closed or transport from your home country is impossible due to Covid-19, you will be refunded in full. More detailed information will be confirmed in mid-September.
Morzine Reservation is available to help you find and organize your stay in Morzine, with a wide range of apartments and hotels all applying this cancellation policy
Mask wearing is currently obligatory in common areas of all accommodation. All areas are regularly disinfected, and hand gel is available. Reinforced cleaning and disinfection protocols using appropriate equipment are in place, along with social distancing measures in any common spaces.
 
Travelling to resort
All minibus and taxi services are enforcing mask wearing during the journey and asking clients to use the provided hand sanitizer before entering the vehicle.
Morzine is one of the closest resorts to drive to from the UK, Holland, Belgium and Northern France. If you prefer not to use public transport you can find details of how to reach us by car on our travel page.
A lift system to feel safe
The Portes du Soleil ski area is partially open from the 11th of December, and fully open from the 18th.
New procedures were put into place across the Portes du Soleil this summer to ensure the safety of everyone. The lift companies implemented all health and safety measures specified by the government. The national operating body for ski areas will announce national guidelines this autumn, but we can expect to see similar measures for the winter. Currently the Portes du Soleil lift operators are not planning to reduce numbers on the lifts, but keep 100% of capacity this winter. Please check the latest news before travelling as restrictions could come into place if governments change the current rules.
 
Current planed safety measures on the Morzine-Les Gets ski area are as follows:
  • Wearing a mask is compulsory in the waiting areas, at boarding and on the ski lifts.
  • No limitation on the number of visitors to the ski area has been set to date.
  • Cancellation and total reimbursement of ski passes not used without proof*.
  • Cancellation and refund of Morzine-Les Gets season pass until the opening of the ski area (12 December).
  • You are encouraged to buy online to beat the queues and avoid contact with people –> Bonus: ski passes are cheaper on line 
  • Observe social distancing when queuing (ground markings in the waiting areas at the checkout).
  • Hand sanitizer will be available at checkouts and at the entrance to ski lifts.

Ski Schools
There is currently no planned limit on the number of skiers in group lessons, but masks need to be worn at the beginning of the lesson by everyone over the age of 11. In the booking offices and all interior spaces, mask wearing is obligatory, hand gel is available and all surfaces are regularly disinfected. All material used is also disinfected between each use.
Material hire
You will need to wear a mask in the shops, and hand gel is available. All material is disinfected between each rental.
Restaurants & bars
Restaurants will continue to follow government guidelines. Mask wearing is compulsory when not seated at your table, and seating has been arranged to ensure distancing of at least 1 meter between different groups. Hand sanitizer is available, and frequent cleaning and disinfection is carried out.
Free bus services
The buses will be operational but with special safety measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety.
Tourist Office Opening hours
The Morzine-Avoriaz Tourist Office is open Monday-Saturday in the autumn, and will open all day every day during the season. Access will be controlled with distancing measures, one-way circulation and marking on the floor. Sanitizer gel is available at the entrance...
