Morzine Resort Info
Morzine is part of the massive Porte du Soleil ski area. It really does offer something for everyone, particularly for boarders, who can also head to Avoriaz where they'll find a series of snowparks and a giant "ecological park" (loads of natural modules set off-piste between the trees)called the Stash. Beginners will appreciate some of the gentle local runs, which help on those first tentative days.
Morzine ski resort
Before becomming a ski resort, beautiful Morzine was originally a town in itself. This means that there is more to do than in your average purpose-built resort, with a decent selection of shops and more non-skiing activities than you will need in a week. Accommodation is varied in terms of size, age and price.

Snow Overview - France (snow news updated 16-Jan-2017)
Thursday 12th of January was a day for bated breath as we await the big dump that is arriving overnight and into Friday. A bit of fresh snow over the last few days has freshened up slopes and even provided some powder off piste (if you don’t mind scrapping a few rocks underneath) so there were some good conditions available if you were willing to brave the weather. Excellent skiing was, for instance, available in Bonneval sur Arc (45/220cm) and La Plagne (3/105cm) where fresh powder meant fresh tracks. Some of the best skiing in France, however, was not found in the Alps but in the Pyrenees. Resorts like Bareges/La Mongie (50/100cm) and Cauterets (60/80cm) have had up to 40cm recently. Let’s hope the next few days bring more of the same.
European Weather Outlook
Winter has arrived, better late than never apparently. The past few days has seen excellent snow fall, particularly in Austria, now its France, Italy and Switzerland’s turn. Coming up is a change in the direction of the flow of cold air. This change will, over the next 72 hours finally bring sizeable snow falls to resorts around The Matterhorn and Mont Blanc Massif. Strong winds are prevailing in some areas of the European Alps today. These winds will likely stay moderate to strong during the storm, this will mean uneven distribution of snow throughout the entire south western Alps range. In the east Italian resorts in the Sella Ronda will also see just under half a metre of new snow arrive. For the worried masses traveling to the Alps, fret no more. Over the weekend and into next week at time the visibility will be poor but the skiing will be fantastic.
The good news doesn’t stop for resorts in Germany either. The forecast is for more heavy snowfalls over the next three days. This week’s snowfalls should bed down a snow base to last the rest of the season, even the off piste areas will start becoming an option.
In Austria, briefly speaking the tap will stay on for the next three days with moderate to heavy snowfalls expected to continue. Beyond 72 hours the storm will slow down but conditions will stay cloudy with light snow.
The Pyrenees are getting some excellent snow fall currently, this will continue into the weekend. A great time to be skiing in the area.
