Families and Children
The perfect family snow holiday destination!
Morzine is a fantastic destination for families with children of all ages and there are a variety of brilliant ski schools available to choose from. The learning slope and magic carpet (newly covered so great in all weathers) at the top of the Pleney is a fantastic facility for the young ones to find their feet and the wide treelined greens and blues in the Morzine / Les Gets area provide plenty of space to progress. Meanwhile, the more experienced kids can show off their skills in the Mini Stash on the Super Morzine or graded features in the snowpacks of Avoriaz. There are also plenty of non-skiing activities available including an open air ice rink in the centre of town, a Carousel and the fantastic indoor swimming pool complex (with warm baby pool). Speak to our team to learn more about our family friendly chalets and to help plan the perfect winter getaway!
