The local tourist website is:
Website: www.morgins.ch
and it should go straight to the English version.
You will find all information on the village here including all activities in the summer and winter, weather forecasts and a picture gallery along with webcams. Morgins is one of the most traditional, picturesque villages in the Portes de Soleil which is the worlds largest linked ski area with over 650km of pistes. It sits on the Swiss side of the border with France, therefore Chatel over the border is only 8 minutes away by car.

Don't forget that Switzerland is as beautiful in the summer as well as the winter and the weather is fabulous so you can follow the sun round on our 360 degree balconies on your sunlounger! There are lots of activities including mountain biking, and wonderful picturesque walks where you can take the ski lift up and walk downhill or gentler ones in the valley! And for the adventurous there is the Fantasticable in Chatel with zip wire rides from peak to peak along with a tree top adventure park at Champery. There are also thermal baths just a short car ride away at Val d'Illiez. Morgins sports centre has indoor and outdoor courts and a resident tennis professional and an open air swimming pool situated at the edge of the forest in idyllic surroundings. Water polo and table tennis competitions are organised during the summer holidays.

The main summer season is from the middle of July until the end of August but it is equally lovely at other times of the summer. The chalet is available to rent all the year round.

Morgins sits more or less on the border with France and therefore the Portes de Soleil ski area is accessible from the village. To the French side via the Corbeau lift in Morgins to Chatel and Super Chatel area and on to Torgon or Les Lindarets and Avoriaz. The Swiss side is accessed via the Foilleuses lift in the village to Champery/Les Crosets/Planachaux via Champoussin and back round to Avoriaz. The ski lifts are approximately 8 minutes from the chalet door on foot although there is a free ski bus which runs between the 2 lifts throughout the day in the winter. Morgins benefits from a completely separate and safe beginners area next to the crèche, with its own drag lift, toboggan area, restaurant and childrens snow park. The ski rental shop is literally across the road from the chalet and the best bar in the village is approximately 20 steps from the chalet front door! The pizzeria is also across the road and the other bars and restaurants in the village are all near.

The changeover day is Saturday.
