Non-skiing Activities

Morzine-Avoriaz is a fantastic winter destination as it offers so many things to do, both on and off the slopes. On the piste, it’s not just all about skiing and snowboarding, but snowshoeing, nocturnal sledging, snow scooters, Nordic walking… Off the slopes, après-ski beckons in the great bars and restaurants of Morzine, but so does swimming, indoor and outdoor ice-skating, paragliding and relaxation in a wonderful spa. So much to do, so little time…

Morzine winter adventure


Paragliding above snow-capped mountainTandem paraglide over the snowtopped mountains of Morzine-Avoriaz and appreciate the best of the French Alps, from the sky. The bird’s eye views are truly breathtaking and an opportunity not to be missed!

Nocturnal sledging

Go up the main Morzine Pleney cable car and sledge down the closed ski slopes in the dark, with a headlamp. Sounds mad but brilliant fun!



Experience the mountain from another angle and enjoy the quieter untracked pistes, with fantastic, unspoilt views. Have lunch in a mountain refuge off the beaten track and get to see the real rugged mountain landscape. A fun activity to do with the children too!

Morzine relaxation

Enjoy one of many beauty treatments such as a wonderful hot stone massage, affusion shower, facial or body scrub, at our favourite spa in Morzine, ‘Un Cocon au Pays des Flocons’.

In-chalet massage

Spa massage

Need to have muscles unknotted or physiotherapy treatment on an old sports injury. Or maybe you would just like a relaxing aromatherapy massage, but prefer to stay in the comfort of the chalet, then you can. Morzine has an English mobile physiotherapist, Sarah, sports masseuse, Beverley or beautician, Magali, who can pop round to the chalet, at your convenience, without you having to step outside into the snow. Always best, however, to book in advance.


Chill out, relax and watch the world go by in the many great bars and restaurants in the beautiful village of Morzine. Enjoy the shopping and pick up some local specialities in the lovely mountain boutiques.
