Morzine Events Schedule For Week Commencing Saturday 25th January 2020
Every week throughout the winter season 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 27th 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 28th 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 29th 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.
Ice Hockey Match – Head down to the Skoda Arena (located under the Super Morzine bridge in the town centre) for an 20:45 kick off. The Morzine Penguins are very competitive and play in division 2 of the French league. This fixture is a friendly match but will still be action packed.
Womens European Cup For Alpine Skiing – This is one not to be missed. The European Cup is the gateway for the World Cup so come along and watch some of the best European women skiers go head to head for a spot on the world circuit. The ladies will race giant slalom down the Pleney pistes finishing just above the lower station of the Pleney lift so you can very easily get amongst the action. There will be racing on both Wednesday and Thursday evenings.
Thursday 30th 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
