Something to be aware of if you're considering a Morzine-Les Gets pass:

If you initially buy a 6-day Morzine-Les Gets ski pass but then want to ski in the rest of the Portes Du Soleil area, it is not possible to upgrade your pass.

Instead you would have to buy a seperate lift pass for the full area. Doing this (even for one day) actually works out more expensive than buying our discounted 6-day Portes Du Soleil ski pass.

The Morzine-Les Gets Ski Area Pass

A Morzine-Les Gets ski pass give you access to the beautiful Morzine-Les Gets ski area, but not the whole Portes Du Soleil ski area (covered in Section 2 of this guide). This lift pass does not give you access to the Super Morzine or Prodains lifts which leave from Morzine but are actually part of the Avoraiz ski area.

The Morzine-Les Gets ski area offers lots of wide, tree lined pistes as well as more difficult piste and off piste opportunities.

The ski area connects Morzine and Les Gets with slopes running right into each small town. We have a self-catered chalet and three ski-in-ski-out apartments at the foot of the Pléney, one of the home runs in Morzine.

The ski area has 48 ski lifts and 69 slopes (9 black, 28 red, 29 blue, 3 green) so there is something for people of all skiing abilities.

Ski Lift Pass Recommendations For Beginner Skiers and Snowboarders

Most beginner skiers and snowboarders will be taking lessons and where those lessons are taking place will affect which lift pass you should buy.

We recommend people take ski lessons in the Morzine-Les Gets ski area as it is easier to access and more beginner friendly. In this case, purchase a Morzine-Les Gets ski pass.

However, later in the season, taking lessons in Avoriaz can be a better experience for beginner skiers.

This is because Avoriaz is at a higher altitude and therefore the spring snow conditions can be better. If your ski lessons are in Avoriaz you should purchase a Portes Du Soleil lift pass.

For more information on ski lessons see our Ultimate Guide to Ski and Snowboard Schools in Morzine.

Ski Pass for Lessons in Morzine

Ski Lift Pass Recommendations For Intermediate or Advanced Skiers and Snowboarders

For intermediate or advanced skiers and snowboarders we recommend purchasing a Portes du Soleil ski pass. All sectors of the ski area are accessible via blue or red pistes so get out there and explore!

For more advanced riders there are tough black runs and off piste opportunities dotted all over the mountains.

The Best Places to Buy Ski Passes in Morzine

There are 3 places to by ski lift passes in the center of Morzine town. They are:

  1. Pléney Lift Pass Office

    pleney-lift-pass.jpg#asset:2626

    This lift pass office is located at the bottom of the Pléney bubble (the most obvious ski lift in Morzine). This office can sell you Morzine-Les Gets and Portes Du Soleil passes.
  2. Tourist Information Office

    tourism-office-lift-pass.jpg#asset:2628

    The tourist information office is right in the middle of Morzine, adjacent to the town square. Rather than going inside to buy lift passes, head to the window that sells lift passes on the town square side of the office.
  3. Super Morzine Lift Pass Office

    super-morzine-lift-pass.jpg#asset:2627

    This office is located next door to the Super Morzine suspension bridge can connected to the Super Morzine bubble. The lift gives you access to Avoriaz and the rest of the Portes Du Soleil and therefore the office can only sell Avoriaz only or Portes Du Soleil area passes, not Morzine-Les Gets passes.

Map of Lift Pass Offices

Pure Morzine guests don't need to worry about heading to lift pass offices. We can sell you ski lift passes at our exclusive discounted rate and have them waiting in your chalet or apartment when you arrive.


Section 10

How Portes Du Soleil Ski Passes Work

All Portes Du Soleil ski passes are hands free. Woo!

This means that you can zip your ski pass in a pocket and simply brush against a sensor on the barrier to by let onto a ski lift. It works using NFC, the same technology behind Oyster cards and contactless payments.

Most ski lift barriers now have sensors on both sides so it doesn't matter which pocket you put your ski pass in. However, ski lift passes can be blocked from working by mobile phones or wallets with other payment cards in so it's best to put these in separate pockets.


Section 11

Tips on How to Not Lose Your Ski Pass

Losing your ski lift pass is a nightmare! It can cost you money and skiing time and it will certainly be stressful. Here's a few top tips to help you to avoid the problem:

  1. Write down the unique ID number of your ski pass
    Each Portes Du Soleil pass has a unique ID number. If you write that number down (or simply photograph your pass on your phone) at the start of your holiday it will mean that your pass can be easily replaced if you do lose it.

    If the worst happens, simply head to a lift pass office, tell them you've lost your pass and give them the ID number. They should be able to cancel your lost pass and issue you with a new one.
  2. Have a designated lift pass pocket in your outwear
    Most ski jackets and ski pants have quite a few pockets. We suggest picking one pocket to be your designated lift pass pocket. That means you keep nothing else in it and, as Portes Du Soleil lift passes are hands-free, you won't need to unzip it at any point. This massively reduces the risk of your lift pass falling out and becoming lost.
  3. Move your pass if you change your clothes
    If you're a ski fashionista and have multiple outfits for the mountain then be sure to move your pass from one item of clothing to the next. Nothing compares to the frustration of arriving at the first lift of the day and not being able to get on because you changed which jacket you're wearing.
