10 reasons to visit Morzine, Les Gets and Avoriaz this winter.


Our friends at  Morzine Source Magazine tell you why there is no reasons at all why you shouldn't visit us this season.

 1 – Transfer time

No fewer than 10 airlines fly directly to Geneva from the UK. Les Gets, Morzine and Avoriaz are the closest major ski resorts to Geneva, making the transfer time around 1 hour and 15 minutes. Compare that with the three hours (plus!) you’d spend on a transfer to the Three Valleys or Espace Killy and you can see why the area is so popular with families, weekend groups and everyone else too! You’ll be sipping a vin chaud before you know it.

2 – Micro climate & snow record

No, it’s not a myth. Our three resorts sit slap bang between the glacial summit of Mont Blanc and the ginormous water mass of Lake Geneva. It’s a scientifically proven fact that this gives us lots of powder days. Avoriaz may be one of the highest ski resorts in Europe, but Morzine & Les Gets certainly aren’t. However, only a fool should assume that low altitude means poor snow. According to Igluski.com, Les Gets (at 1172m) and Morzine (at 1000m) had a better average snow depth throughout the winter season than Courchevel, Meribel, Courmayeur and Mayrhofen. Our favourite ‘low lying’ resorts don’t do too badly at all.

3 – Price

Here’s an idea. Add up the cost of five key holiday spends during one day of your holiday. Let’s go with your accommodation, equipment rental, lift pass, a meal and a beer. Last winter Trip Advisor compared these same costs in ski resorts across Europe. Using the very same criteria set by Trip Advisor, Morzine would appear 3rd on the list, with a total cost of £120.26 per day. Les Gets would be in 4th place with a total of £133.07 and Avoriaz appeared in 15th place with a total of £190.33. All three resorts were significantly cheaper than the likes of Chamonix (£209.83), Tignes (£289.68) and Val d’Isere (£290.92). And don't for get ski hire which is very competitevly prices in Morzine. See Doorstep Skis for prices.
