The great thing about Morzine is that it’s a very family-friendly ski resort, and there’s plenty to see and do for children of all ages.

Morzine Hotels for Family Ski Holidays

Enjoy the convenience of a half-board family holiday at Hotel la Chaumiere. The charming hotel is great for family ski breaks, plus the snowy slopes are just 30 metres away. Guestrooms come with TVs and that all-important wireless Internet to entertain your social media-obsessed teenagers. The larger triple and family quad rooms offer plenty of space if you want to stay together and these are popular with families with young children. There’s a heated swimming pool (perfect to occupancy the children after skiing), a cosy bar area and delightful restaurant, where children are warmly welcomed, and great emphasis is placed on the importance of eating together as a family during your ski holiday in Morzine. You’ll be allocated your own dining table at our hotel, rather than everyone eating together, as is the case at our catered chalets in Morzine.

Ski Slopes (and Play Parks) for Little Ones in Morzine

Morzine is famous for its beautiful mountains and variety of slopes to suit skiers of all abilities. Why not introduce the children to skiing or snowboarding while they’re young? We say that 3 is a great age to start skiing! And what greater joy is there than watching your children learn to ski? There are plenty of nursery slopes and fantastic qualified ski instructors to help them get started. In Morzine there’s the Penguin Park at the top of the Pleney with tunnels, jumps, and mini slaloms, where young children will have lots of fun. The Morzine Les Gets ski area is the perfect place for youngsters to learn, while over in Avoriaz, the Lil’ Stash is brilliant for more confident young skiers and snowboarders.

Fun Winter Family Activities in Morzine – off the Slopes

If you’re looking for places to enjoy family activities off the slopes, Morzine has much to offer the children. Why not head to the palais des Sports swimming pool in Morzine centre? Here, there’s a kids’ splash pool and a 25-metre-long lap pool. Or visit Avoriaz and the Aquariaz water centre for a great day out for the whole family. There’s a lazy flowing indoor river, the slidewinder halfpipe, a toddlers’ paddling pool, water playhouse, a Tarzan rope swing, and a larger pool. If swimming’s your thing Morzine-Avoriaz has you covered this winter.

For fun on something more solid, the outdoor ice rink next to the Tourist Information Centre in Morzine will entertain everyone. There are stability penguins and aids for children and adults, and you won’t find a more picturesque setting as you skate in central Morzine against the backdrop of snowy mountains. Alternatively, check out the indoor ice rink in Morzine, where you can skate or even take the children to watch a pro ice hockey game!

Every child loves sledging, and this will use up less energy than skiing! There’s a quiet nursery slope behind our partner ski hire shop, close to the Pleney, which is brilliant for the kids to sledge whilst the adults soak up the sun on restaurant le Matafan’s terrace.  If you’re staying at our central self-catered apartment in Les Gets, the Chavannes ski piste has its own dedicated sledging slope. Sledges are available to borrow free of charge as well, in both Morzine and Les Gets! Great stuff.
