WHAT’S ON IN MORZINE-LES GETS THIS MARCH
Ahh… March. That perfect month of spring skiing. Is there anything better than the sun beaming down on your face while you’re gliding down the mountain, or simply enjoying a well deserved beer on the side of the piste? I think not. The only downside is that notoriously attractive goggle tan we all develop but grow to love… maybe.
We can already hear the sound of good music trickling around the mountains and the mid-season festivities bringing joy to all of the locals and holidaymakers here in the Portes du Soleil. If you’re visiting in March then you’re certainly in for a treat because there are lots of exciting events and activities in store for you! So without further ado, here they are …
Not to be missed
