By the way View and download the Morzine piste maps. Understanding the Portes Du Soleil piste map. There are three maps to consider because Morzine is one of the towns that make up the huge Portes du Soleil ski area. The local area piste maps show more detail than the Portes Du Soleil map which provides more of an overview of the whole ski area. The best places to pick up piste maps in Morzine are the lift pass offices and the tourist office. The tourist information office is right in the middle of Morzine, adjacent to the town square.
Inside you can find Morzine-Les Gets and Avoriaz editions of the piste map. Both have the local area map on one side and the whole Portes Du Soleil map on the reserve. This office is located next door to the Super Morzine suspension bridge and is connected to the Super Morzine bubble.
The lift gives you access to Avoriaz and the rest of the Portes Du Soleil and therefore stocks the Avoriaz edition of the piste map — Avoriaz map on one site, Portes du Soleil map on the back. You can also get piste maps from the lift pass offices at Prodains Telecabine, Nyon Telecabine and Ardent Telecabine which are all located further out of Morzine. Tap the map to show the full Portes Du Soleil piste map.
The app also provides other information that will help you make the most of your ski holiday such as lift status open or closed , weather and snow conditions, the current avalanche risk and more. Another feature we like about this app is the easy access to the dozens of webcams that are located around Morzine and the Portes Du Soleil ski area. When you first look at any piste map it can be hard to understand.
There are lots of coloured lines going in different directions and icons everywhere! The Portes Du Soleil piste map can be especially hard to understand because the ski area is so big. The PDS is the biggest international ski area in the world so there is a lot crammed onto one piste map! The pistes or ski runs are represented on the map by the wiggly lines. These lines have a small arrow on them that tells you the direction you ski down them.
Additionally, there are Free Zones which are shown in orange. These are ski runs which are off-piste and therefore not groomed and flattened by piste bashers each night. The difficulty of these runs depends on the snow conditions. Snow parks are shown by a snowboarder icon and the name of the park in black and yellow.
Most snow parks have some easy and some difficult features so no difficulty rating is given on the piste map. There are over 30 snow parks shown on the Portes Du Soleil piste map and many of the best are in the areas around Morzine. Ski lifts are shown on the Morzine piste map and Portes Du Soleil piste map as black straight or curved lines. They have a small arrow with two tails to show you the direction of travel and a small icon to tell you what type of lift they are. Drag lifts are slower and more difficult to ride for beginner skiers and snowboarders.
Chair lifts are fast and easy to ride. They are very fast and carry a lot of people. Toilets are marked on the map with a WC icon. To catch some of the most spectacular mountain vistas around Morzine you can visit the recommended viewing points that are marked on the map with a black icon that looks like a sunrise. Meeting points can be useful for organising to meet with friends and family on the mountain.
They are marked on the piste map with a green and white icon. Stopping for lunch? Restaurants are marked on the piste map with a knife and fork icon, picnic spots with a green picnic bench icon. There is more to the Morzine piste maps than just ski runs, lifts and mountain restaurants. They also give you some interesting information about the geography of the region. The Portes Du Soleil ski area is in both France and Switzerland and therefore the border is represented on the piste map with a yellow and green dotted line.
The 12 towns of the Portes Du Soleil are fairly obvious on the piste map. Each town has a flag next to it so you know if it is in France or Switzerland and the height range of the surrounding ski area.
Each major mountain peak is marked on the map with its name and its height in meters. At the top of the lift are some green nursery slopes as well as a choice of steep and challenging red runs or tree-lined, meandering blue pistes. This is a great area of the mountain for families and beginner skiers. It has dozens of rolling red pistes and fun blue runs all served by five chair lifts. These means you can spend a whole day in this area of the mountain without skiing the same run twice.
The views of Mont Blanc from the viewpoint at the top of Le Ranfoilly are spectacular and there are some lovely mountain restaurants to choose from. To find Grand Combes on the piste map, find Morzine town and look left and slightly up.
Alternatively, it is diagonally up and right from Avoriaz. Morzine and its neighbouring towns of Avoriaz and Les Gets offer dozens of cross country skiing tracks.
The Super Morzine plateau offers six different tracks which can be accessed from Morzine and Avoriaz easily. They vary from easy green up to very difficult black. In the Morzine-Les Gets ski area there are 12 tracks to choose from. They can be cross-country skied, snow-shoed or, if the snow conditions are right, walked on foot.
