Great potential requires investments and attention
Feb 2020 • Family
Area with great potential however, it requires upgrading and attention in comparison with other areas like Les Trois Vallees. Most lifts are outdated and provision of information can be significantly improved and modernized specifically on the piste itself (the app is quite good but I do not like using my phone on the piste). We were there in the busy weeks in February and then you have to accept waiting times in the lifts like most other areas.

Late skiing ⛷ trip to the French and Swiss Alps
Apr 2018 • Solo
This was my first visit to the Portes du Soleil region situated between France 🇫🇷 and Switzerland 🇨🇭. If your 🎿 pass allows you can ski in the French and Swiss Alps. The piste was very good with regular snow falls during the time I was there. There is so much to see and do it’s impossible to see it all in just a week, however I did try.
I stayed in Morzine in a boutique chalet style hotel which was in a good central location. You can access both the Morzine and Avoriaz ski areas from Morzine with lifts on both sides of the town. The area was busy but it did not feel like it when you were on the slopes ⛷. I meet friends from Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 whilst I was there and we had a great time skiing in both areas. Great place and good value for money.

Do not use MegevExpress or ChamExpress!
Jan 2018 • Friends
We booked a return shuttle from Geneva Airport to Megeve. The outbound shuttle left 2 hours late, the vehicle was extremely unsafe (inadequate seatbelts and brakes barely working). Our return shuttle never arrived after waiting for 1.5 hours at our pick up point. None of the phone numbers on their website are real numbers. We had to take a private taxi as a result. The extremely rude and incompetent staff said a refund was not possible. I have reported them to the Geneva Airport authorities as well as the French/Swiss tourism regulators. Never ever travel with them! The whole thing is a scam and will ruin your ski holiday!

very crowded during high season
Feb 2017 • Family
During high season would advise to avoid this ski area unless you enjoy big cues at the lifts and large crowds. Its very very crowded. During low season its ok but do avoid childrend holidays.
Also the skilifts and facilities are less modern compared to other areas.

Great skiing but not for the faint-hearted
Jan 2017 • Couples
We visited Morzine which was a great location to take advantage of the Portes du Soleil area ski pass. One day over to the Les Gets side on Le Pleney lift and the next over on the Super Morzine to the Avoriaz side. The pisted ski area is immense at 650km and it was fabulous for the more experienced and brave members of the party.
However, I would say that as a more cautious blue run skier, the area was tough. There are a lot of edges on the Avoriaz runs. Even the soft blue Proclou run has a netted edge, so if you tend to get the shakes with a hard edge, or if you prefer not to see a couple of miles of the hill spread ahead of you, this may not be the ideal destination for you.
If you are confident and competent and comfortable with a variety of skiing terrains then you will love it.
Our party loved being able to stretch into Switzerland and one even took in the Swiss Wall and this really was a proper playground for them.
We found a couple of 'less edgy' blues - heading from the top of the Le Pleney lift down to the Nabor and then down through the Penguin park and off to the left - Les Chardons and from the top of Avoriaz the Proclou.
Other than that, the blues mostly seemed to be difficult to reach without the drop-off or long open and flat.
A fabulous weeks skiing all round though.
Central Morzine was a great place to stay even though it was slightly to the right of the pass area.

The mountain biking is on point!
Aug 2016 • Friends
I love this place. The whole of the 'Portes Du Soleil' is not only just for mountain bikers in the summer. You can have hiking, lakes, paragliding, zip-line, white water rafting and other activities. If you are a mountain biker you will love the range of runs and free-ride options as well.

Summer-time is just as good as in winter!
Aug 2015
There is a Multi-Pass available for very little cost [€9.-- initially, which can then be recharged on a daily basis]. This enables you to go up and down a huge number of cable cars and chair lifts for the whole day, which is a fantastic experience - even down into Champery in Switzerland. Only drawback is that the facility stops at the end of August in order to prepare for the winter ski-ing season, but since buying the tickets in mid-July, we have been out 4 times on the lifts and enjoyed our days tremendously!

Good Ski area
Mar 2015 • Friends
A very good and big ski area. Not far from Genève, just an hour plus in transfer. A lot of villages built together in a big system with multiple choices.
