Morzine snowfall November 28th 2012

Last night was cloudy in Morzine and at 8pm snow was falling heavily. This was a short lived period of snowfall but this morning it was clear that the snow had started again during the night. There is a thin layer of snow on the ground in Morzine town and although the roads are clear they are wet and a little slippery.

I expect there is snow on the road in Les Gets and I’m hoping for at least six inches up in Avoriaz. The forecast is for more snow tonight with hopefully another six inches before morning up at 1800m. With the lifts due to open in two weeks we’re keeping our fingers crossed that this will be a solid base for more snow to sit on!

Discounts are available from the 15th December through January if you quote SNOWFALL28. Visit our Live Prices and Availability to find your ideal Self-Catered accommodation in central Morzine.

Chalet Buchille – alpine tradition, eight minutes from village centre..

Front side

Chalet Buchille provides a rare combination of superb views, excellent accommodation and a very convenient position. The centre of Morzine and the Super Morzine ski lift are just eight minutes` walk (800 metres) away from the chalet. Skis can be hired and stored at Intersport next to the lift, thus eliminating the need to carry them back and forth each day. For those looking for a change of scene, the bus to the Ardent lifts leaves from just across the road from the chalet and passes every 30 minutes. You can also take this bus in the other direction to the village centre, just near the main local supermarket – Carrefour.

Double Room

The chalet is of modern construction and has been furnished to a high standard throughout. The ground floor has a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, fridge-freezer, oven, hob, microwave and washing machine. The dining area has seating for 8 and a wood burning fire which is a real delight after a hard day`s skiing! From this room large doors give access to the balcony which runs around the chalet and from which there are truly superb views of Morzine and the snow covered mountains beyond. On this floor there is also a bedroom with two single beds, a bathroom with wash basin, bath with a shower and a separate WC. The first floor has two double bedrooms and a cosy sitting area on the mezzanine overlooking the living area. An i-pod dock, DVD player, English TV, free wi-fi and books and games are all provided by us to ensure that everyone is well entertained. The lower ground floor has a totally independent studio apartment with twin beds, a small kitchenette area and a bathroom and WC.


Outside the chalet is surrounded by a large private garden. There is parking for several cars in front of the chalet and an integrated garage and a ski store. Chalet Buchille is a lovely peaceful alpine property, conveniently located just outside the hustle and bustle of the village centre.

New In This Week…Chalet Des Coeurs – Christmas Still Available..!

Living Area

Chalet des Coeurs is a new and beautiful chalet oozing luxury. It is located at the beginning of one of the most scenic and peaceful valleys in the area – The Vallee de la Manche. The chalet is situated at the end of a private driveway just a few minutes on foot from the Nyon Telepherique. This unique and beautiful location offers quick, easy and snow sure access to the world renowned Portes du Soleil ski area which includes almost 650 km of marked pistes.

Chalet des Coeurs has five lovely bedrooms and can sleep up to twelve in total. The chalet also has three luxury bathrooms, one of which is en-suite. The property is well appointed and has everything you need. There is a wi-fi connection, laundry facilities and parking for up to five vehicles.

Double Bedroom

The traditional alpine village of Morzine is twenty minutes on foot (1900m to village centre), so we do recommend having a car to help with things like provisioning, although there is a free bus that runs up and down the valley during the day. Many of our guests choose to drive all the way to Morzine and of course hiring a vehicle from Geneva airport is also very easy. The drive into the village centre is just a couple of minutes, where you will find supermarkets, shops and of course lots of lovely bars and restaurants.

All in all this is the perfect chalet for a couple of families or a group of friends who are really keen to get on the mountain. This beautiful alpine chalet will definitely lead to a truly wonderful, relaxing mountain experience.

The Perfect – Location, Location, Location…

Chalet Les Pommiers – in the heart of the village

Les Pommiers

Chalet Pommiers is a brand new property for Alptitude and is located in the most enviable town centre position – located less than 200m from the bottom of the Pleney slopes and just one minute from the town centre.

The property is set over three floors with five bedrooms sleeping a maximum of ten. It is an ideal property for groups of friends as well as families.

Given the wonderful location it is a great property for very keen skiers but also for those who just want to relax in town and enjoy all the other activities that the town and resort have to offer.

The property has a galley kitchen which leads out to a dining area with seating for 10 people. This leads into a comfortable lounge with an open log fire and large french windows that lead out to a decked terrace.

The 5 bedrooms are made up of 4 twin bedrooms and 1 bunk room. There are two bathrooms and two separate WCs within the property so ideal for those who like a bath as well as a shower after a long day on the slopes!

The top floor of the property has large Velux windows in most of the rooms allowing great views on Nyon and plenty of natural light.

Living Area

There is also a ski boot room for you to store all of your equipment away at the end of the day.

This property comes with a garage with room for 1 car, however, a car is really not a necessity when staying here. Book an Alptitude transfer from Geneva airport and take all the hassle out of your journey!

All ski areas are easily accessible from the property – the Morzine/Les Gets ski area is just 200m from the front door, and Avoriaz and the Portes de Soleil can be reached by catching the Super Morzine telecabine from the centre of town or catching a bus (nearest bus stop is 50m away).

This really is the perfect property for those wanting a perfectly convenient and comfortable chalet.

There is a private parking space just off the road and you also have your own private entrance into the apartment giving it a real alpine chalet feel.

Les Egralets is superbly located just five minutes` walk (on the level) to the Super Morzine lift from where you have access to the fabulous skiing in Avoriaz, Chatel and Switzerland (Portes du Soleil). The Petit Train runs a regular service between Super-Morzine and the Plénéy lifts for the Morzine Les Gets ski areas.

The bus stop for the free Navette bus service is less than a minute from the apartment and runs between Morzine and the Nyon, Prodains and Ardents lift stations.

The shops, restaurants and bars in the centre of Morzine are within five minutes walk.
