Reasons to fly to Morzine

Compared to its neighbours, the small ski resort of Morzine is relatively low-lying, set only at 1,000m in the French Alps. But skiers booking flights to Morzine aren’t put off by the altitude. The skiing on offer in the resort may be better suited for beginners looking for easier slopes, but for advanced skiers, Morzine is the perfect spot from which to explore the surrounding area. Even if the snow in Morzine is sparse on the ground, it’s just a short hop to the larger ski area of Avoriaz, and also on to the vast expanses of Flaine and Mont Blanc.

That's not to say Morzine doesn't have its own appeal. It is a charming market town, with beautiful buildings. But the real draw is the cost of accommodation - substantially cheaper than that in the bigger resorts nearby. Morzine flights arrive in Geneva Airport, from where the transfer is relatively quick. Serious skiers, however, may prefer to take a car so they can drive off in search of good snow if needs be.

When to fly to Morzine

Peak season:

The season in Morzine runs from mid December to mid April. Because of the altitude, the snow on the slopes round Morzine may be sparse later in the season, but this can be a better time to find cheap flights to Morzine and use the town as a base for the surrounding area and the Portes du Soleil.

Off season:

There is plenty to do in and around Morzine in the summer months: hiking, horse-riding, hot air ballooning, kayaking, golf, cycling. The resort is much less-crowded than the winter ski months though and flights are easier to find.
