Why Choose Morgins
Morgins was the first Swiss Portes du Soleil ski resort. Some of the first British skiing in the alps was done here. We are carrying on some of this tradition by running our ski and snowboard lessons and from here. It has slopes perfect for the beginner and snow-loving kids and offers a great first ski experience.
There are plenty of blue runs to get skiing on and to build confidence with our instructors in your private or group ski lesson. There is also convenient access from Switzerland into the French sector of the Portes du Soleil for those looking to cover some serious mileage in a day.
The wide fun blue runs also mean that it is a brilliant place to get on your snowboard.
Morgins is a classic alpine ski resort and is the home of Olympic Downhill winner Didier Defago. It is also a friendly alpine village where you will get the full experience of a Swiss activity holiday.
The town is linked at either end to the Portes du Soleil ski area. From the Foilleuse chairlift, intermediate skiers can be instantly rewarded with some challenging terrain as well as excellent beginner terrain and facilities. This access is why it is a great place to book a holiday.
Probably the best part about Morgins is how easy to get to it is. It is only 45 Minutes from Montreux, and the road up to the village is an easy and safe drive. All of the parking in the town is free all day, and if you get there first you can get a spot 10 meters from the Follieuse lift!
Beginner skiers in Morgins
The beginner area at Morgins is fantastic. There are two areas, one called the Geant which is at the top of the village just before the border which we tend to use in bad weather and then the main area at the top of the Follieuse lift. Once the client has reached a decent level, there is easy skiing back to the village on blue runs.
The beginner ski pass for under 5’s is free in Morgins and they have ‘espace debutant’ passes specifically for the beginner area.
Intermediate skiers in Morgins
Intermediates are well catered for in Morgins with numerous red and blue runs of a nice steepness. The thing that intermediates will love about Morgins is how quiet the slopes are compared to just over the border in France.
The hidden gem in Morgins is, without doubt, the Didier Défago run (named after the Olympic downhill champion who is from here and celebrated by local schools) which is accessed from the back of the Aiguille du Champey chairlift. Because it runs back to Morgins village from the top of Champoussin, it is rarely skied.
Eating and Apres Ski in Morgins
Our personal favourite for hot chocolate and croissants in the morning is the Fontaine Blanche which is just by the Follieuse ski lift. It also just happens to be the ski school meeting point, and you’ll usually find the SnowPros Ski School Instructors in there having a coffee before their first ski lessons, discussing the day to come and getting their ski boots on.
On the mountain, there is a big self-service restaurant at the top of the Follieuse beginner ski area. The food is good served up by a friend of the ski school Oliver, but the terrace is the really special part because it looks out over the magnificent Dents du Midi and Dents Blanche mountain range and if its a clear day, you can also see Mont Blanc.
After skiing, there is usually a good party and plenty of activity to be had in La Yourte so head there first. It is the round tent bar just in front of the building where other ski schools in Morgins operate from. La Yourte is run by our friend Julie, and it’s usually the place to do après ski.
