If you don’t want to ski every day, or are traveling with children or other members of your group who aren’t skiing, you might find this page helpful to know what else is available other than skiing in the mountains.
One of the great advantages of staying in Morzine is that because it’s a proper alpine town rather than a purpose built resort there are plenty of other activities to enjoy.
The Morzine-Avoriaz tourist office is always a good point of call if you’re not sure of opening times or the location of any of the activities you’ve seen advertised. You can’t miss the office, it’s located in the centre of the pedestrianised square right in the centre of town.
A great option for non-skiers or if you fancy a day off skiing to explore Morzine from areas you can’t access on skis.
You can book half or full day excursions. You will be collected in Morzine and taken by minibus to the starting point. Snow shoes and poles come included in the price.
Wrap up warm, hold tight and enjoy a ride like never before. Standing on a single person sled you are pulled along by 3 husky dogs through the winding empty slopes close in Avoriaz.
Booking at least 3 months in advance is necessary.
Been watching your favourite ski or snowboard video and always fancied having a go on one of the snow scooters all the pros have? Well here is your chance…
Located on the road up to Avoriaz AvoScoot Morzine offers guided snow scooter rides from 17hr30 every day during the winter. It’s a good idea to book before you come on holiday to get the time you prefer.
You will need to take a taxi or drive up to the Avoscoot hut on the Route d’Avoriaz 15mins before your session begins.
The Morzine ice rink in the ‘Palais Des Sports’ is home to HCMAG Hockey Club Morzine Avoriaz.. A successful club in one of Frances top divisions, there are exhibition and league matches played regularly throughout the winter season.
Combined with the Palais Des Sports bar, an evening at the ice hockey is a great night out for kids and adults.
Tickets can be bought online or from the Morzine tourist office.
Open all winter, Monday – Friday 12pm – 7pm and Sunday’s 10am – 4pm. A fantastic indoor complex with 3 pools. A 25m pool with swimming lanes, a smaller and warmer children’s pool as well as a shallow paddling pool for toddlers and babies.
Located in Avoriaz itself, Aquariaz is more of a fun pool than a swimming pool with a lazy river, water slide, children’s paddling pool and water cannons, rope swing and outdoor hot tub overlooking the Morzine valley. Entry is a little more expensive than the Morzine pool but it’s a good children’s activity and break from skiing if that’s what you’re looking for.
To get there you can either ski, possible but not advised! Alternatively drive or take one of the shuttle buses from the centre of Morzine out to the Prodain lift that takes you directly up into Avoriaz, from there you can either walk or take a horse drawn sleigh round to the pool itself.
Morzine has two ice skating rinks. One indoor ice skating rink next to the swimming pool complex under the suspension bridge that also plays host to the Morzine-Avoriaz ice hockey team and an outdoor ice skating rink in the town square next to the Tourist Office.
Both are open during the winter for public use and you can hire skates directly at the rink. Opening times for the indoor rink vary depending on whether there is a hockey match on and the outdoor rink is open most evenings but is subject to weather conditions.
Being flown by an instructor, you take off from one of the peaks in Morzine. Your tandem flight will take in the views from a new angle. Choose the headcam video option for a great souvenir.
From Chatel, fly across the hamlet of Plaine-Dranse on two cables each over 2km long, at speeds of up to 100kmph.
