Very friendly for a French resort
Too many button lifts (some are very rough)

Full review

Of all the French resorts I have visited, this must be the friendliest of them all. We had lessons for the kids (ages 4 and 6) and the teachers were second to none. The staff were very helpful, especially when the kids had problems getting on. The resort has loads of blue runs to get the blood flowing, many nice reds to get the thigh burns and nice wide mogul runs for those who still have the knees and nerves to challenge them. The resort also looks very nice when arriving... Not all concrete abd brick but nice 'swiss Mountain' look. The only drawbacks are the button lifts where there should be chairs and lack of connection between the Super Morzine and the other side of the mountain (accessed by a little train but don't do it at noon as the driver takes his lunch OR by a free bus service). The scenery was also GREAT. Good choice of restaurants all over the resort (Avoriaz, Morzine, Les Gets), the food was better than average and the prices reasonable. The snow was starting to disappear at the bottom (Morzine) but was great in Avoriaz. We are planning to return next year!
