Morzine is the best value
From the above table, it's clear that Morzine and the wider Portes Du Soleil ski area represent great value for skiers looking to explore. We realise that having a vast ski area isn't for everyone, so for skiers who don't explore as far and prefer skiing in smaller resorts, there is plenty of other options out there that represent great value, however for those that enjoy big days out, skiing from resort to resort, and possibly dropping into a neighbouring country for lunch, there is no better option than Morzine and the Portes Du Soleil on lift pass value alone!
Morzine Lift Pass Opening Dates
