New Year in Morzine

Fireworks in Morzine for New Years

New Years in Morzine by Dan Fox

Sarah my wife and I have just returned from 5 days skiing over New Year in Morzine, we had a fantastic trip with 14 friends! The weather was great all apart from one day when it snowed, which meant 6 inches of fresh powder the next day. I had forgotten how much I enjoy the Portes du Soliel, the variety of skiing in and out of pretty traditional villages then up to the parks and open area of Avoriaz. We did the Full circuit on days skiing 6 resorts, great fun and a real adventure including 2 short bus rides and much looking at piste maps! The PDS offers exceptional value, Vin Chaud on the mountain for 2.5€ at New Year and Hache Frit from 7€ and Plat des Jour for 10/12€, that's hard to beat at home; we also had a great meal 2-course speciality meal out with drinks etc for 30€ including tip!

It was great to talk to other guests many returning to the Gourmets who said it was their best stay yet.

The Club Chalet Gourmet offered us all a great welcome with our new team all smiley and keen to please. The all-new menu is proving a real hit with guests as is our surprisingly good free wine. It's looking better than ever having been fully decorated and made even more homely with new comfy sofas and smart new chairs in the dining room, not to mention all-new crockery and cutlery.

It was my first trip of the season by coach, I’d forgotten how comfortable Club class are, 7 hours sleep! I left the office at 430pm and drove to Stop 24 and on the return was back at my desk at 840am.

Hope to see you on the slopes soon,

Dan Fox MD
