Morzine is ready and waiting to welcome you


We want to experience the joys of the mountains, of freedom and nature, but we want to feel safe while we do so. The mountains offer an incredible natural playground, and with the vast space of the Portes du Soleil spread out across 600km of skiing, there is plenty of space for everyone to feel at ease as they enjoy the fresh air. We’re taking safety seriously and are busy working on what is needed to ensure you can relax and enjoy time in Morzine.
Strict hygiene measures will be in place, activities have been specially adapted, but the same fresh open spaces will be available to enjoy in safety. Whether you’re at the lifts, Tourist Office, your accommodation, local transport, or our shops and restaurants you’ll be expected to wear a mask, will find hand sanitizer available, as well as the now ubiquitous reminders to wash your hands! We take your safety seriously and are putting all the necessary measures into place.
 

Mask-wearing is obligatory in all enclosed spaces.

Hand sanitiser is available.

Contact areas are regularly and thoroughly disinfected.

Distancing instructions are in place

The Morzine Tourist Office obtained the Safeguard award


This certification confirms the effective sanitary measures carried out, and that all the health and hygiene conditions have been met in our locations. For an establishment that welcomes the public such as the Morzine-Avoriaz Tourist Office, it is important to provide a guarantee that preventative action has been put into place in the context of the  Covid-19 pandemic.

A thorough audit has recently been carried out to check that all the necessary measures have been put into place.

Amongst the points checked  :
Engagement by the Management to work against the risk of contamination
Reinforced hygiene rules are enforced : cleaning, disinfection
Social distancing rules are carried out amongst colleagues and with clients
Application of barrier measures amongst colleagues and with clients
Actions needed in case of a suspicion of contamination
