Morzine Ski-Passes and Official Lift Opening Dates

by | 3 October, 2019

The Portes du Soleil is renowned for being the largest international ski area in the world. One of the things we love most about it is that you can ski in 2 different countries (France and Switzerland) all in one day if you want to! With 12 linked resorts, a variety of terrains and an abundance of things to see and do, there’s no wonder this area is a favourite amongst groups of friends and families. As there are lots on offer, it’s important to understand the types of Morzine ski-passes available for beginners and more advanced skiers.

Read on to find out more about them and the official lift opening dates that we’ve all been waiting for!

types of morzine ski-passes


There are two main Morzine ski-passes available … the Portes du Soleil pass covers the full area (650km) and the Morzine-Les Gets ski pass covers the local slopes accessed directly from our chalets (120km).

Experienced holiday skiers are advised to purchase the 6 day Portes du Soleil pass because it ensures access to all of the pistes and the best conditions, along with a huge range of mountain restaurants and après bars without the worry of ‘crossing a border’ unintentionally. For beginners and anyone booked into ski school in either Morzine or Les Gets, the smaller area is usually sufficient.

When you stay with Morgan Jupe, we will organise lift passes on your behalf and deliver them to the property ahead of arrival. If you have already booked winter accommodation and haven’t yet emailed us with your lift pass requests, please make sure you do that ASAP and we will get this all organised for you.

You can find a list of official ski passes here;
