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 30-Mar-2017)
After a really good spell of fresh snow for a number of resorts over the weekend, Thursday 30th of March saw a return to spring conditions. Slopes are starting to suffer in many places, especially at lower altitude, and it is really feeling like the end of the season now.
Lower slopes in Alpe d’Huez (100/200cm) are looking a bit worn to say the least, so it’s definitely worth staying up high for the best snow. As the sun melts the snow, it may be best to call it a day early and enjoy a drink on the terrace – slushy slopes will be the order of the afternoon. Lower slopes were suffering in a number of resorts, but none more so than the aptly name Portes du Soleil, where the sun was shining. Slopes down to Chatel (10/60cm), Les Gets (10/85cm) and Morzine (40/100cm) were on life support and groomers are doing a great job keeping them open. Conditions on the upper slopes are still very fun; it just might take you longer than usual to get to the good snow.
There were some excellent conditions still to be enjoyed in Flaine (42/265cm), where the best skiing was mid-morning, when slopes had been softened somewhat but were not too soft. This is not an exception, and if you like firmer slopes then these can be found in a number of resorts if you get up early enough.
European Weather Outlook
It has been a fairly pleasant start to the spring ski season in The Alps with mostly sunny skies dominating the weather pattern. However this weekend will see shift away from this pattern, wide spread cloud, rain and even thunderstorms are forecast right around the main Alps range. The rain snow limit will vary widely between 2200 metres all the way up to 2900 metres.
For those heading out over the Easter break, don’t fear. The unstable weather should pass by Monday, leaving behind clear sunny conditions. You won’t be skiing powder, but on piste conditions will be fun and forgiving. Finding the best conditions will be a matter of finding the right altitude on the slope for the resort you are in.
