What ever your choice, one plank or two, Morzine, Avoriaz, and the Portes-du-Soleil offer a huge area for you to ski or snowboard, in some truly stunning scenery.
'Modern' skiing may have been around for a hundred years or so but development in ski design and construction over the last 15-20 years has opened the door and allowed giant steps forward in the use of skis.
Snowboarding may be a far newer sport (originally developed in the 1960's & 1970's) but it has developed at an amazing rate and whilst it has a very different learning curve to skiing, you will soon find yourself flying around the area.
If you are a first timer, whichever of the two disciplines you chose we are sure you will love it but be prepared for a few days learning. There may be a few bumps and bruise, but we are sure you will have a smile on your face!
Many people consider snowboarding to be more 'extreme' than skiing, but you can be sure that either skiing or snowboarding will be more than exhilarating enough to keep the most extreme adrenalin junkie happy. Both sports can also be taken nice and calmly for the more sedate natured - there is nothing like cruising around on the pistes on a sunny afternoon to relax you!
If you are a bit more experienced in one of the two disciplines, why not give the other one a go? You can't knock it until you have tried it so why not book a half day lesson in the 'other' side of the sliding world? Or for those already proficient in both disciplines why not really push yourself and have a go at Telemarking?
Both snowboarding and skiing provide an excellent way of spending time in some of the most beautiful mountain scenery. So whether you are first time mountain visitors through to experienced powder hounds, we look forward to meeting you in Morzine and sharing our passion with you.
