The Pléney gondola will be replaced with new lift equipment for winter 2013/14.This key new lift will provide improved capacity and better access to the winter ski area and for summer Mountain Biking in Morzine.

Ground level access to the top and bottom lift stations will make for quicker access and ease of use. As we await the opening of this new lift, and due to the scale of the works involved, Le Pléney gondola will be closed for the 2013 summer season.

To ensure MTB activities, the local councils and the lift companies of Morzine-Avoriaz and Les Gets, will put in place the following solutions:

  • Early opening, from the 15th of June 2013, of the Super Morzine gondola and the “Zore” chairlift. From the 28th of June, an earlier opening time of 08:30am and a 50% increase in the flow-rate will ensure free-flowing traffic.
  • A bus service adapted for carrying Mountain Bikes will be run daily between the resorts of Morzine and Les Gets from the 28th of June to the 1st of September 2013 (dates inclusive). This bus service will be reserved for those with a Portes du Soleil lift pass.
  • The Mountain Bike tracks between the resorts of Morzine and Les Gets will be marked out, signposted and maintained.

Further steps are also being examined to safeguard Mountain Biking in the Pléney area, and improve the flow capacity of the lift links between Morzine and Les Gets, by way of the the “Crusaz” and “Mouilles” chairlifts.

More information will follow on this subject as soon as possible.

Reminder of lift opening dates:

  • Les Gets: Every weekend from the 25th of May and every day from the 15th of June to the 8th of September 2013.
  • Morzine: Every day from the 15th of June to the 1st of September.
  • Portes du Soleil: The lift links will open for the Pass’Portes du Soleil VTT, on the 28th of June, and will run until the 1st of September 2013; allowing access to the 23 lifts open this summer and linking the 12 resorts of the Franco-Swiss area.

Everyone involved in the resorts of Morzine-Avoriaz and Les Gets is working tirelessly to make sure that Mountain Biking, which is vital to our local tourist economy, goes ahead this summer.

All other infrastructure in the resort of Morzine will run as normal for the summer 2013 season:

  • The “Crusaz” chairlift for pedestrians and summer toboggan.
  • The “Pointe de Nyon” chairlift for pedestrians.

Don't worry though Morzine is still where its at!

With this news in mind many of you may be thinking that Basing yourself in morzine is a mistake. This couldn't be further from the truth, Supermorzine is undergoing serious work producing three new trails on the mountain along with improved trail access to tracks over in Morgins and Chatel. Many people will not have had a chance to explore the rest of Le Portes du Soleil as Plenty and Les Gets have more than enough trails for a weeks stay but this is your chance to explore the amazing Swiss side to this rad resort.

Hi Guys,

So I guess the first question is, who is Fergus Ryan? I am 25 years old and I am the marketing manager for MTB Beds. I have been racing since I was 16, starting in Downhill before turning my focus to enduro 2 years ago. I love all things two-wheeled and pushing my limits both physically and mentally when it comes to racing.

 

A buzzing ski resort packed full of restaurants, bars and alpine culture, Morzine's restaurant scene was once a fairly drab affair in Summer, owners preferring to take the time off or open softly with a minimal menu and hours. Not so now with Summer offering new opportunities, new ingredients, new menus and new, sunny terraces breathing new life into the town. This is driven by the young generation of Morzinoise and British owners who are ready to move with the times.

Liguria is a region rich in food culture in a country obsessed with what goes on the plate. There simply is nowhere else in the world that cares so passionately about food. The dedication to eating well shouldn't be mis-understood, it's not about fine dining, table cloths and intricate presentation, it's about love.
