Even if your main aim is to get across as much of the Morzine ski pistes as possible, there is a whole range of other activities, all linked to the ski area, to do during your Morzine ski holiday.

1 – The Pas de l’Aigle

Nestled at an altitude of 2019 meters, the Pas de l’Aigle is a 10 meters long platform, with a transparent base, for a uniquely vertiginous experience! Skiers can take in a 350-meter drop beneath their feet, and a 360° panorama from Lake Léman to Mont-Blanc.
Once you reach the end of this eagle's nest, you will see in the distance the snowy peaks such the Hauts Forts, the Fornet, the Dents du Midi, the Tour Sallière, the Dents Blanches and the mythical Mont-Blanc in the distance! For those who are afraid of heights, do not look under your feet!

Access is free and is only by ski from the top of the Pointe de Nyon chairlift.

2 – Race a falcon

The specialist bird park, the Aigles du Léman in Morzine has put into place a unique challenge for skiers to try: a race on skis against a falcon in an attempt to win a falconry course if you manage to beat the bird!
If the bird wins, then you’ll still be offered lunch for 2 in the restaurant and can take in the impressive shows. Put your name in a hat to win a place at the welcome drink each Monday on the Tourist Office square, then it’s time to head to the Nyon part of the Morzine ski area!  

The aim: discover little know species of birds native to our mountains and their incredible capacities.

3 – Night sledging

As night falls, once skiers have deserted the pistes of the ski area, try out the crazy adventure of a sledge descent covering 4 km!
On a reserved piste, you’ll follow a team of professionals and the light of your head torch. You’ll quickly master the necessary techniques to control your sledge and enjoy the ride overlooking a lit up Morzine sliding through the trees.
Fun, adrenaline and lots of laughs guaranteed!

4 – Family snowshoe outings

There’s no need to be incredibly sporty to enjoy a snowshoe outing. It is easy to learn and requires no complex techniques. It’s why snowshoe walks are often advised for families. An outing on snowshoes can mean taking your time and taking in your beautiful surroundings. Young and old will be astonished by the views and the diversity of animals as you head a little away from the busy ski slopes.

You can head out alone using the routes in our free Nordic guide or  with a guide.
