Morzine – Portes du Soleil
23rd – 30th March Shredders sessions camp – £825
Living in Morzine
Off the hill, Morzine town is one of the more beautiful resorts, a disused tin mine, the views are amazing. With the new public swimming pool (you have to wear speedo’s or the tight shorts so bring your worst) and ice rink, you can watch the local teams play ice hockey, visit some really cool shops and bars and get to know the local guys in town.
Up the hill there is everything you will need to keep you going. From burger bars, traditional restaurants and the supermarket if you just want a quick re-fuel before you go for another adventure shred.
Have a look through the Morzine tourist office website to find whatever else you might like to know.
How to Get There
Morzine is centrally located in the alps, short driving distances to major cities down the mountain and so very easy to get to.
Get on a flight from your local airport to Geneva airport (GVA). From Geneva you either book a transfer to the resort (which is the cheapest) or hire a car. From the airport it is approximately 1hour 30minutes transfer/drive to Morzine.
You can get a train from St. Pancreases station in London through to Geneva train station, underneath the airport. From Geneva you can book a transfer to Morzine, hire a car or continue on the train to Thonon and then get a taxi up the mountain to Morzine (be careful as a taxi can be quite expensive).
If there’s a few of you, driving can be a good option. It is pretty straight forward and takes approximately 8 hours from Calais to Morzine. You can book either the ferry or channel tunnel to cross the English Channel from Dover, UK to Calais, France, or Dover, UK to Dunqurke, France (45minutes North of Calais).
