Morzine is a city in Portes du Soleil.
Drive from Calais in around 8 hours.
The nearest major airport is at Geneva (GVA).
In the Summer
Morzine and the surrounding region, including Les Gets, is an excellent place to go mountain biking (in the summer, of course) with loads of great trails, some scary downhill courses and, of course, ski lifts to take the effort out of getting to the top. Of particular interest is the Kona Bike Park in the near-by town of Les Gets. This is a custom constructed area with drops, berms and jump including plenty to challenge all but the bravest of cyclists.
Like all ski resorts, Morzine is packed with chalets and other small units to rent. Prices can be extremely reasonable and present specially good value when shared with members of a group.
[Ride the Alps] (http://www.ridethealps.com/; +44 (0)113 225 9946) provides a good source of custom mountain biking trips, advice about the area and a resource for things like ride guides.
