2- Make sure your ski equipment is in tip top shape

If you have your own skis, you should get them serviced by a specialist before hitting the slopes.  You’ll know they are in perfect shape to take in the 600km of pistes on offer in the Portes du Soleil. If you don’t get them serviced before leaving home, no bother, our experts know exactly how to best look after your kit, and also offer you the very best in ski hire. With a large range of shops offering ski hire in Morzine, and even overnight storage in the shop, you can hit the slopes happily without needing to lug your equipment with you.

3- Ski holiday, which mode of transport to choose?

Whether you come by car, train or plane, it’s down to you to decide which suits your needs best.
We advise you to head to our site for info and also look at Snow carbon. It’s a unique service for finding train times from your home to your chosen resort. It can help you find how to get to Morzine in a more environmentally friendly way than jumping on the plane.

4- Pack your suitcase for skiing: make a check list to be sure you leave nothing behind

From head to feet: Helmet, wooly hat, sunglasses & goggles, scarves, warm layers and jumpers, ski jacket and trousers, gloves, and of course don’t forget spares for children for when they play in the snow! Ski socks are another essential, and don’t forget your swimsuit in case you want to use the pool or relax in a spa after a day on the slopes.  
In your wash bag you should add a few bits of first aid, just in case, and above all don’t forget your sun cream.

5- Getting yourself into shape before?

Being in good physical condition can help avoid injury on the ski pistes. If you’re usually office bound it can be a shock to the body to spend all day on the ski slopes! It’s recommended to do some simple and efficient exercises to develop your endurance and strength. Start developing strength four weeks before your holiday to help get your ski legs in shape.
