A resort of distinction – ideal for families
For an even greater choice of pistes there is also Le Grand Massif, to which Morillon belongs - a real paradise for skiers of all ability levels. With a total of 265 kilometres of great pistes there is something here for everyone: beginners, professional skiers and fans of freeride and deep snow skiing. As a rule the pistes become more challenging the higher you go but even in the higher areas of this resort it is possible to find easy and moderately difficult runs – an enjoyable way to appreciate the unique Alpine scenery of this area. Worth a special mention is the Piste Combe des Gers, an extremely challenging 2.5 kilometre freeriding course which descends from a height of more than 700 metres.
Snowboarders will enjoy the superbly-equipped funpark near the central station of Flaine and cross-country skiers are also very well catered for with an extensive and varied network of well-marked trails (several suitable for skating), covering a total area of 96 kilometres.
Morillon also has facilities for younger skiers, including its own kids’ practice area with a conveyor lift, ski kindergarten and a children’s ski school.
Those who fancy a break from the busy ski slopes may enjoy the chance to get their walking boots (or snow shoes) on and explore the wonderful countryside around Morillon.
Holidaymakers in Morillon generally enjoy quiet evenings relaxing in their comfortable chalets or apartments but those in search of a bit of après-ski atmosphere will find plenty of it in the resort’s cosy bars and restaurants.
