Morzine has a lively après and nightlife scene that can start in several bars on the slopes. It continues throughout the evening with lots of live music and DJs. There’s also a wide range of restaurants to keep you fuelled for a week or two of skiing.
Morzine offers something for everyone, but it is a very family-friendly ski resort. It’s easy to get to the slopes, and there’s always something going on to keep kids entertained.
