Week Commencing Saturday 11th January 2020 – Weekly Events Schedule
We know most of you are in Morzine to make the most of your time on the slopes. However, 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:
Monday 13th 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 cheese to try from the l’Alpage dairy.
Tuesday 14th 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.
La Grande Odysee is a French dog sledding tour and Les Gets hosts one of the races. For one night only you can watch some of Europe’s best mushers battling it out for the title, a great opportunity to experience such a niche sport. Head to the tourist office in the centre of Les Gets to catch the action.
