What’s on in Morzine-Les Gets this January

by | 11 January, 2019

January is the perfect month to find yourself in the French Alps, especially if you’re staying in a cosy chalet in the Portes du Soleil. For one, the scenery is simply stunning. If you haven’t experienced it already then you owe it to yourself to feel your heart skip a beat as you see the sun glimmering over the top of a snowy peak.

Secondly, here at Morgan Jupe we are offering a very generous 20% off all chalets still available throughout the month of January. Book one of our flexi or fully catered chalets in Morzine or Les Gets and save up to £1,500! Find out more about that here.

Thirdly, well did we mention there’s snow? And tons of it! We’ve just had a huge dump and we’re due another 50cm of fresh snow this week. So you know what that means? Lot’s of lovely powder!

But that’s not all! This January there are loads of exciting events taking place in and around Morzine-Les Gets that we know you just won’t want to miss. Find out more below …

Apres ski

We all know a good old après at the Folie Douce or Happy Hours will never disappoint but get ready for après at Le Tremplin. The outdoor terrace of Le Tremplin is open from 4pm every day, so you can make the most of your stay in Morzine and enjoy après ski in a warm and welcoming setting. Every week, live bands and DJs will light up the scene at the foot of the slopes, for some unique moments spent with family or friends after a day’s skiing.

WHEN: Every day

 

Get Involved

Fancy yourself as a musician or maybe a comedian?  Head over to Les Rhodos for open mic night. This event takes place from 5pm – 7pm and we know you’ll definitely be in for a good time. Open mic night is recurring weekly so if you miss it this Monday don’t worry, you can always go next week.

WHEN: Every Monday

What pairs better with good music than food and wine? Grab a table and enjoy the vocal talents of Tania Ivanov and friends at Vina Annapurna every Thursday throughout the winter.
