Why Easter is a Great Time to Visit Morzine

Warmer Weather and Longer Days

Easter skiing is all about blue skies and sunshine - what could be better than the sun on your face whilst you enjoy incredible mountain views? Don’t forget your suncream and lip balm though!

With the warmer weather comes the option to eat and drink outdoors. Soak up the sun with a glass of rosé and a delicious tartiflette at lunch time, or enjoy a picnic on the piste and enjoy the views. 

You also can’t beat a long après-ski in the warm sunshine. By late March, the evenings are lighter and the lifts open later so you get more piste time!

Deals & Cheaper Ski Passes

As high season ends a few weeks before the season, lift pass companies usually offer some great deals for Easter and Spring skiing. 

From 30th March 2024, the Portes du Soleil are offering FREE ski passes for children under 12 when accompanied by an adult. A saving of €210! 

Compared to Christmas, New Year, and Half Term, Easter is typically the quietest of the school holiday weeks so if you are tied to the holidays, Easter is a great option.

So, What's On This Easter?

There’s always something going on in Morzine, and Easter is no different with an amazing array of activities for all the family taking place on and off the slopes.

The Final Welcome Drinks of the Season 

Monday 25th March

Head down to the Tourist Office square in the centre of Morzine to taste traditional grog and local cheese.  The grog is a mixture of herbal teas from the Carthusian monks and plant elixir from the Grande Chartreuse.


Ice Hockey Exhibition Matches

Wednesday Evenings from 8.45pm

Head down to the Skoda Arena, in the Palais du Sport by the swimming pool, to cheer on the Morzine-Avoriaz Penguins in their final few matches of the Winter season!


Treasure Hunt Across the Ski Area

Every Thursday 9am-4pm

Follow a free treasure hunt across the Morzine ski area and discover the slopes in a fun, unique way. Find hidden markers by solving the clues whilst enjoying the slopes. Ask at the Tourist Office for more details.


Royaume des Marmots - Kids Kingdom of the Marmots

Easter Weekend - 30th March - 1st April 

Daily events in Morzine’s main square by the tourist office for children and families to enjoy, free of charge. The entertainment and shows on offer include wooden games, face painting, treasure hunts, snook-golf, and live music concerts. 


Portes du Soleil Champions Race

Monday 1st April

The Portes du Soleil Champions Race is a large ski race for children from ski schools and ski clubs, as well as holiday makers.

Local ski champions will be in attendance to offer advice, autographs, selfies and, most importantly, the prizes at the podium ceremony!

An unforgettable day for any young skier!


Alta Lumina

For something totally different, head to Alta Lumina in Les Gets.

This spectacular light and sound show is set in the woods beside the Chavannes lift. Open year round, Spring is the perfect time to visit as it doesn't get dark too late and it's a little bit warmer than mid-Winter. Please ask us about our taxi service.


Luge 4 Saisons 

And whilst you are in Les Gets, why not visit the new Luge!

The 1100m long track has a drop of 104m, and if you can keep off the brakes you can reach speeds of up to 46km/hr!

It's absolutely thrilling - one run won't be enough!

After the Easter holidays, party time really starts up on the slopes during the final few weeks of the season. You'll find live music, snowboard events, ski races and plenty of table dancing across the resort.

If you want a cheeky late season ski this year, have a look at our available properties and get booked in!
