MORZINE-AVORIAZ RESORTS

Morzine itself is a busy little Alpine town with a lively spirit. Traditional wooden chalets with slate roofs and stone foundations ensure that the village retains its character and Savoyard charm. This region is known to have a number of unspoilt French villages but Morzine must be close to being the best in terms of atmosphere, facilities and charm. Morzine is also fantastically located for Geneva airport - a key factor for many group ski and corporate ski trip planners. Morzine is a town full of life offering a range of sporting and cultural activities. There are plenty of excellent restaurants and bars for guests to enjoy the après ski during the winter.

The most well-known après ski hangout is Bar Robinson's.  Robbo's is a traditional French cafe run by three locals who remember Morzine before it was so busy. Although the bar has no music or entertainment it offers a super strength lager that has made it a popular destination for anyone who's spent the day on the hill.

Avoriaz is a totally ski-in / ski-out resort built at 1800m, high above Morzine. With great access to the slopes and lifts it makes an excellent choice for those wanting to maximise time on the snow. Avoriaz however lacks the atmosphere and amenities of Morzine and there are few hotel options there.

MORZINE-AVORIAZ APRÈS SKI

Morzine has some of the best après ski in region. It may not be as ritzy as Val d'Isère or Courchevel but the number of bars, both for locals and visitors make Morzine a great place for a night on the snowy streets. Bar Robinson (or Robo's) is famous across the region for its après ski but there are many other après ski venues which offer a great, late night experience.

For skiers and snowboarders leaving the Avoriaz ski area, there are a number of après ski venues around the base-station at Les Prodains. Indoor and outdoor après ski action is available and whilst not high-end establishments, these venues have a good atmosphere and are handily located at the end of the ski pistes.

MORZINE-AVORIAZ MEETINGS & SEMINARS

Short transfer connections from Geneva, great après ski and numerous on and off snow activities make Morzine an excellent option for group and corporate ski trips. For large events, the Palais des Sport in Morzine offers space for up to 700 people to meet. There are numerous room configurations, a restaurant and outdoor areas as well. For smaller events, there are a number of hotels that offer specialist meeting rooms around Morzine.

Activities are a key part of any corporate ski trips. Non-skiers will find Morzine a fantastic location to stroll around with weekly markets in the village, plenty of shops and some non-ski action such as winter walks and snow shoe walking. Après ski is always a great, group unifier, whilst there are some quality restaurants in Morzine for excellent dining experiences. Tobogganing & Tepee evenings are also a great group activity.
