“Summer too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Not what you might expect, but a good place to visit in the summer. You might not want to stay in the ski focussed accommodation but I recommend a day trip to the town. There is a municipal programme which. on the day that we were there, included free salsa lessons. Great fun. A small train gives you a free lift from the (free in summer) car park to the town square. See separate reviews for the water play area Aquariaz.

For the really adventurous there's a fairly tricky via ferrata just out of town. With two overhangs, a cable bridge and a plank crossing it's not for the faint hearted.

Huge network with plenty of room for all the visitors to spread out. Endless opportunities for all ski levels. Very good childcare in Morzine at l' Outa. Kids enjoyed the ski school at Village des Enfants.

“Fabulous ski resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

Superb snow even in mid April. Good restaurants and some amazine ski schools. Particularly good for families and friends. Stay in Morzine - it is prettier than Avoriaz
