Should you buy a Morzine-Les Gets ski lift pass or Portes du Soleil? And how?

Deciding which ski lift pass to buy in Morzine depends on snow conditions, your skiing level, and what kind of experience you are looking for. We have broken it down the different Morzine lift pass options here, and we are always on hand too to talk it through. 

Morzine-Les Gets ski pass (the local area)

  • 48 ski lifts
  • 64 marked ski runs
  • 120km of piste
  • Nordic skiing trails
  • Beginner zone
  • ‘Wild West’ ski area for children

This lift pass covers Morzine-Les Gets, linking Pleney and Nyon areas in Morzine with Chavannes and Mont Chery areas in Les Gets. It’s the area you can access directly from Chalet Morzine, and is ideal for beginners, intermediates, and families, with tree-lined slopes, dedicated beginner pistes, and mountain-side restaurants. 

This is the perfect lift pass for groups of beginner and intermediate skiers, or if you have lessons booked that will start at the top of the Pléney. More advanced skiers can use the steeper terrain around Chamossière and have the option to ‘top-up’ their ski pass giving access to the Portes du Soleil on a daily basis. 

Portes du Soleil ski pass (the full area)

  • 600km of groomed slopes
  • 400km2 surface area
  • France and Switzerland
  • 208 ski lifts
  • 307 marked ski runs
  • 12 ski resorts
  • 30 ski areas (border-cross, snowparks, ski-cross, fun areas)

For more advanced skiers and those capable of covering more ground are better with  Portes du Soleil ski pass. The ski area stretches over 12 resorts including Chatel and several ski resorts in Switzerland and offers an amazing variety of terrain. The Avoriaz and Swiss sectors can be accessed easily from Chalet Morzine. Just a 5-10 minute’ walk to the Super Morzine cable car or a short bus ride to the ‘Prodains’ cable car which whisks you straight up to the top of Avoriaz and into the heart of Portes du Soleil skiing

P’tite Glisse

  • 12 chairlifts and the beginner ‘magic carpet at the top of the Pléney
  • 6 green, 6 blue and one red piste
This ski pass limits access to the resort, keeping beginners safe and also offering a saving for those who won’t use the whole area.
