Morzine is a lively, year-round resort that offers an extensive choice of slopes. The main area is accessed by gondola to Le Pleney, a compact network of pistes suiting all abilities, with blue and red options from every lift. There are plenty of tree-lined runs, too, while snowboarders are well catered for due to the lack of both draglifts and flat sections in the area. The picturesque town centre offers plenty of apres-ski options with restaurants and bars lining the streets to the lifts of Le Pleney. There is an excellent multi-route bus service that links all parts of the town to the lifts as well as neighbouring Les Gets. Your centrally located accommodation at Club Chalet Hotel Gourmets – just a two-minute walk from the central square with its abundance of bars and restaurants – boasts a warm, relaxed atmosphere, offering superb value for money. You can choose from private or shared facilities, cosy chalet or spacious family rooms. Dining with views across the Valley, your holiday includes buffet breakfast, afternoon tea with homemade cake and wine with your evening meal. Afterwards relax in front of the open fire, play a game, watch TV, or simply unwind and relax, looking forward to your next day’s skiing. For more information visit www.skiweekends.com
