Morzine: The Town
Morzine ski resort is a stunning little town nestled in the northern french Alps. Unlike most large ski resorts, Morzine has maintained it’s alpine feel, with the resort still being dominated by traditional ski chalets rather than apartment blocks and hotels. This is largely because of a local law stating that no buildings are allowed to be constructed higher than 5 stories. The main road (Route de la Plagne) runs straight through the centre of Morzine ski resort. Like most ski resorts located in an alpine valley, Morzine is situated on the main river running through the valley – La Dranse de la Manche.
