Morzine in March 2020 - What weather to expect & what to do
All the best events taking place in resort
The busiest time of the winter is now over, the slopes have emptied and there is still almost two months left of winter. March is a fantastic month to come to Morzine as the sun is out and the snow is fantastic.
However, the calendar of events isn’t quieter at all, in fact, March looks set to be one of the busiest and best months of the season so far. We’ve been trailing the what’s ons and events listings to bring you the best of the best for March 2020.
What are the weather & snow conditions like in Morzine?
This time of year is a pretty safe bet for a ski holiday – the base has had time to build up and the temperatures are generally still low, so the snow is usually good. This season had an unusually dry and warm January and the first two weeks of February continued the same way. However, things have changed significantly over the past couple of weeks. Frequent heavy snowfalls have improved conditions and there has been plenty of fresh snow to be found. There have been occasions when the freezing level has been above town but, generally, even when there has been rain in town, there has been snow just above it and the skiing has improved drastically in recent weeks. The storms have brought in some high winds, however, so it is a good idea to check which lifts are open if a storm hits.

Morzine Film Awards
The big event this month – nay, this season – is the Morzine Film Awards on March 24th. Over the past two winters, the MFA have grown into the biggest night of the winter and the best showcase of everything Morzine has to offer. One thousand people will cram into the Skoda Arena, drink the bar dry and party the night away whilst watching the best videos the citizens of Morzine have to offer. If you are in town this week, we highly recommend that you pick up a ticket. If you are in town the week before, then keep an eye out for teams filming on the slopes. If you are not in town at all, then look on the Mountain Film Awards' website to see what is involved and enjoy the films from the last two years.
