Morzine Events Schedule
It’s the first full week off skiing in 2020 and there’s plenty of fun to be had on and off the slopes. As well as the incredible skiing, Morzine puts on a whole host of weekly events to keep you entertained when you venture down off the hill.
Here’s what’s going on throughout the week:
Saturday 4th January 2020
Ice Hockey Match – The amazing Morzine Pingouins have a home league match against Colmar at the Skoda Arena (Palais des Sportes below the Super Morzine bridge). The Pingouins play in the very competitive second division of the French national league. Kick off is at 20:30 and tickets are 10EUR for adults and 6EUR for kids under 16. Under 5’s are free. It’s loud and cold so bring a jacket but there is also a bar and eatery to help warm you up!
Monday 6th January 2020
Welcome Drinks – Head on down to the tourist office between 16:30-18:30 and enjoy a welcome drink. Green Chaud is hot chocolate with green Chartreuse to warm the cockles and there is also local cheeses to try from the l’Alpage dairy.
Tuesday 7th January 2020
Torchlight Descent – Every Tuesday evening at 6pm the Ecole du Ski Francais puts on a torchlight descent down the Pleney slopes creating a very festive feel. The best place to watch is from the Pleney lift station (or the outside bar of le Tremplin) or the square outside the tourist office where they put on hot chocolate and mulled wine to keep you toasty too! A fireworks display follows the descent.
Wednesday 8th January 2020
Local Market – Every Wednesday morning from 8am- 12:30pm Morzine hosts a wonderful market in the Carrefour/post office car park. Local producers come from the surrounding villages with the best meats, fruits, vegetables and cheeses available.
Thursday 9th January 2020
Cheese Dairy Tour – Every Thursday between 9-10am the local cheese dairy opens its doors to the public. The tour of the dairy will show you how the local cheeses are made and you’ll of course have the opportunity to try and buy the cheeses. (also possible every Wednesday 9-10am). The dairy is located on Route de la Plagne just past the Super Morzine roundabout at La Fruitière l’Alpage
