Suitable for individuals of all abilities, Morzine is one of the top ski resorts in France. It offers an extensive selection of excellent turquoise and green pistes for families and novices alike. It’s in one of the world’s largest ski regions, the Portes Du Soleil.
Because it is a mere hour and a half from Geneva, it is convenient to travel and a terrific place to spend a weekend. The resort has several ski schools with bilingual trainers that speak French and English. Most of the simple piste is found at the apex of Pleney’s primary cable car, the intersection point. Book your Morzine ski holidays now to avail of a range of possibilities if you’re seeking things to do off the piste.
Nestled under the shadow of Mont Blanc, close to the borders of Switzerland and Italy, Chamonix is more than just your average French ski resort. One of the most well-known and esteemed ski resorts worldwide, Chamonix hosted the first Winter Olympic competition in 1924. Although not the ideal choice for an absolute novice, having 106 pistes spread across 119 kilometers and an excellent ski school, winter splendor is at the height of its popularity. It has become much more suitable for families in recent years thanks to its dedication to pistes and places set aside just for families.

Ideal for robust hearts and powerful limbs. It’s also a good choice for those who enjoy vacationing in classic serviced chalets, as plenty are in the valley’s bottom half. Méribel’s neighbors can include Val Thorens and Courchevel. But it’s distinct from both, primarily because of the form of its broad, long valley.
It’s typically more challenging to ski here, with a few noticeable deviations (like the flattish section by the altiport). The terrain is more complicated, winding, and the snow quality is more unpredictable. Even Méribel and Méribel- Mottaret, the city’s two main lodging centers, climb steeply in lung-busting steps.
