The Ultimate Guide to Morzine
Everything you need to know FOR YOUR NEXT SKI TRIP TO Morzine
Morzine is one of Dinoski’s favourite spots in the Alps. It was a key destination on our Roarsome Tour with the Dino Bus and you can ski for miles in all directions. It’s quite a sprawling town and there’s lots of different lifts so the one thing we would recommend, is booking a chalet which offers private transfers throughout your stay if possible.
AliKats Mountain Holidays is our ideal choice for accommodation. You’ll be treated like a king!
THE BEST WAY to GET to MORZINE
Morzine is located just before the border between France and Switzerland and the most popular way to get to the town is via a private transfer.
There are plenty of great private transfer options but our preference is with Ski-Lifts. They have won best Ski Transfer Operator in the world (yes, in the world) and their online quote generator keeps things simple.
Better yet, for our Dinoski followers they provide an exclusive 5% discount.
Otherwise we would suggest SkiidyGonzales, purely due to their name and the fact that all drivers turn up wearing sombreros so that you can easily spot them in the crowd. Genius!
If you’re flying
Morzine is ideally located not only due to it’s beautiful surroundings but also because it’s ease of access. There are numerous airports located within small driving distances and all of the major airlines fly to them.
This means that it’s never too inconvenient or expensive to get to Morzine.
The major Airports located near the town are:
Geneva, Switzerland - 1hr 15min drive
Chambery, France - 1hr 40min drive
Lyon, France - 2hr 15min drive
Grenoble, France - 2hr 30min drive

WHERE to EAT in MORZINE
Our friends at AliKat Mountain Holidays have again hooked us up with some of their favourite eateries in Morzine, which include:
Best for Brunch
Satelite Coffee - Best spot if you miss breakfast at your chalet. Their coffee is also top notch.
Best for Steak and Frites
Le Grillon - Generous portions means you’ll leave with a full belly and smile on your face. These guys are experts in serving up all things delicious.
Best for Fondue
La Ferme De La Fruitiere - It wouldn’t be a French ski trip without fondue. Which is why you need to come to La Ferme because it’s part of a working dairy farm.
Best for Burgers
Ô Chalet Burgers et Crêpes - Widely known as the best burger in the Alps, O Chalet is a popular spot in Morzine. You're guaranteed to have a great time with their welcoming staff.
Best on the slopes
Chez BaBeth - Located on Plain Dranse on the Swiss side. A great savoyard spot to soak up the rays but if you haven’t been before, try and book inside. A totally bonkers take on Santa’s grotto.
