Families looking for the ideal winter sports destination will find that Morzine is among the best resorts on the planet for ski weekends, one writer has claimed.

Adam Leigh, writing for the Independent, said the combination of child-friendly and adult-oriented attractions in Morzine means it caters to people of all ages and abilities.

He pointed out that there are beginner slopes to ease little ones into the sport, while the more difficult runs allow older and more experienced skiers and snowboarders to put their skills to the test.

The town has a youthful, funky feel while retaining a good deal of old-world Savoyard charm. The apres-ski scene is lively, but stops short of full-throated raucousness," Mr Leigh added.

He also noted that the accommodation in the resort can cater to both older groups and families and so ensures a good mix of demographics stay there.

Meanwhile, according to, the range of activities in the resort is not limited to skiing and snowboarding, with some thrilling opportunities such as sledging, paragliding and snow shoe walking.
