Should you buy a Morzine-Les Gets ski pass or Portes du Soleil? And how?
The snow conditions, forecast and your level of skiing or snowboarding all affect which ski pass will work best. Here’s our quick guide to help you decide.
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 pass covers all of Morzine-Les Gets. It links the Pleney and Nyon areas in Morzine with the Chavannes and Mont Chery areas in Les Gets. You can ski back from the Pléney area to just above the Chalet Morzine garden.
The area is especially good for beginners, intermediate and family skiers. Tree-lined slopes, dedicated beginner and ‘quiet’ pistes and plenty of mountain-side restaurants make this a fantastic place to learn and progress.
If you have beginners and intermediate skiers in your group and plan to ski together or have lessons mainly focused here, then this is the pass for you. 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.
