What's new this summer in Morzine

Summer sun brings serious fun to Morzine

featured in News & reviews Author Caro Blackwell, Destination Editor Updated

As the winter recedes, spring slowly turns to summer in the Alps.

The ever-growing popularity of Morzine as a summer resort means that increasingly the tourist industry here is providing more for its visitors to enjoy.

The lifts are usually open by the middle of June, with a few opening on the preceding weekends. You can find out more about the lift opening dates and plan accordingly.

With the rise of summer visitors, the mountain resorts are making a concerted effort to not allow themselves to look like a closed ski resort. The potential revenues the summer months bring is not to be sniffed at, and as temperatures rise at the coastal resorts, many are seeking the cooler temperatures and fresh air of an 'at altitude' holiday. Plus being 'outdoorsy'  hiking and trail-running have all taken on a certain cachet in recent years. Not forgetting one of the main attractions in Morzine and Les Gets in summer, the epic, world class mountain biking trails.

If you're planning a visit to Morzine this summer, whether as a first-timer or it's your 'go to destination' here's an update and a look at all that's new.
