Morzine nonski activities
Morzine, like all other ski resorts, is mainly about skiing, but Morzine does have plenty of alternatives for those non-ski activities or those looking for something extra.
If you fancy a day off the slopes, here is a great selection of activities for you.
Chiens de Traineux provide dog sledding for the dog lovers.
You can book a ride or you can find the dogs in the centre of Avoriaz and ask for a ride.
Half a day will cost €95 and a full day will cost €140.

By strapping lightweight plastic snowshoes to your feet, you are able to walk through deeper snow and therefore enjoy a great area of terrain, stunning scenery and interesting wildlife.
You can go with a local guide and explore hidden parts of the valley.
Snow shoes can be hired from most sports shops.
Although you can always grab a trail map and head off on your own, we do advise hiring a guide for maximum safety and enjoyment.
With ESF (Ecole de Ski Francais), anyone from age 8 onwards can enjoy the calm away from the slopes.
An afternoon of snowshoeing will cost €28 per person.
Morzine boasts a state of the art swimming centre with three pools (adult, kids pool, and splash pool for very young children), as well as sauna facilities – open until 10pm every night.
Go and watch the Morzine Penguins play at the Palais des Sports – a great night out, only costing around €13 per adult.
This is a great family activity, one can hire the sledges from local ski hire shops, and zoom down the floodlit Plenney piste wearing a head torch
