Morgins, a swiss ski resort, is a popular destination for hikers in summer while in winter it is part of the mega-sized cross-border skiing area of the "Portes du Soleil" 12 resorts and two countries which can never be skied out in just one holiday. Located ins the Chablais region wich offers magnificent scenery with the towering Dents-du-Midi, alpine meadows and countless mountain lakes. The real secret of Morgins is the skiing around the Corbeau, and Follieuse areas (one lift, north facing, great snow and lots of secret powder stashes in the right weather and it holds its snow 'until very late despite it's altitude). When you add all that to short transfers from Geneva, quiet characteristic pubs and a few good restaurants Morgins is a winner for those seeking to escape the crowds and still chase big mountain, big area skiing. Check it out.

What a brilliant place. If you want a small family friendly village with ski-in ski-out, several nice bars and restaurants, 650km of slopes, great ski schools and kit hire, not too expensive, loads of nice chalets to rent and just 90 mins from Geneva airport this place is for you! If you want loud brash stag and hen party central then i’d go elsewhere.
