Morzine Ski Information
If you have children, you can leave them in the safe hands of "Le Club des Piou-Piou" and while they are learning and having fun, you can explore the village on a days rest from the piste. The Grand Hotel hosts the tourist office, and you can stay in the village to enjoy the Thursday guided tour which ends with a demonstration of local cheese making. There are some fine forested hiking trails and if you are in a sporting mood then take the kids to try sledging, or even para gliding. Shopping is a unique experience and you will be tempted by the mountain cheeses and quaint hand made items.
