Morzine Lift Pass – Value for Money

September 8, 2011 By Morzine Lift Pass, Morzine Top Tips

Here at Custom Breaks we appreciate that skiing and snowboarding are expensive hobbies, and factors such as the price of a lift pass are an important consideration when choosing a resort. We often have guests “commenting” on the price of their lift passes and we usually reply with “compared to other ski resorts it’s actually quite cheap”. I had heard somebody else say this once but this year we have decided to find out exactly how true this is.

We have researched and compared several of the larger European ski domains taking into consideration the size of the area, the number of lifts and the number of pistes. This is what we found:

Les Portes du Soleil including Morzine, Avoriaz, Les Gets & Chatel
€216 adult
€162 child
650km piste, 286 runs, 210 lifts, 9 parks

The Three Valleys including Meribel, Couchevel & Val Thorens
€240 adult
€177 child
600km piste, 300 runs, 183 lifts, 7 parks

Chamonix All Areas
€255 adult
€217 child
400km piste, 262 runs, 100 lifts, 2 parks

Espace Killy including Val d’Isere & Tignes
€230 adult
€178 child
300km piste, 154 runs, 90 lifts, 2 parks

Paradiski including La Plagne, Peisey-Vallandry & Les Arcs
€237 adult
€178 child
425km piste, 253 runs, 160 lifts, 4 parks

The 4 Valleys, Switzerland including Verbier & Nendaz
€292 adult
€164 child
412km piste, 90 runs, 92 lifts, 1 park,

Well, we were pleasantly surprised to learn that out of all of the areas we researched the Portes du Soleil lift pass is not only the cheapest but also offers the largest ski area, the most lifts and the greatest number of parks! Although these are not the only factors to consider when choosing a ski holiday we think it is a good start!!
