Non-ski adventures and Wellness
Whether you’re a non-skier, taking a day off, or just fancy something different, there are so many adventures to be had. For snow-fun without skis, snow-shoeing is the ultimate way to slow it down and take in the stunning mountain scenery at your own pace. If you’re seeking an alternative way to hurtle down the slopes, try Avokarting – a three wheeled tricycle with hydraulic brakes and bundles of fun.
If you love wildlife, you can learn all about endangered birds of prey in the Alps and how to protect them, at the Les Aigles du Léman winter park. Located in the Morzine ski area at Nyon, you can combine your trip with a visit to the breath-taking Pas de l’Aigle viewing platform.
If throwing yourself down a mountain on skis isn’t enough of an adrenaline hit for you, parapenting definitely will be. Soar above the mountains and find an unexpected peace in the sound of the wind and the tranquil views of the valley below.
The Morzine tourist office also does a fantastic job at organising events and festivals throughout the winter season. For families, the Morzine Enchanted Village is a delightful celebration of all things winter wonderland, whilst the Rock the Pistes festival showcases great music and good vibes, in a unique setting. Visit the Morzine-Avoriaz website for a full list of events this winter.
Over the last few years, Morzine has also enjoyed a growing wellness movement; centred around the beauty and grounding nature of the mountains. Alongside stunning spas, beauty treatments and massages, why not try a yoga session at the beautiful Morzine Yoga studio, or immerse yourself in the tranquillity of a sound bath session. There are also several gyms in Morzine if you’re missing your weekly workout, or just put on your shoes and head out the front door. There’s nothing quite like a run in the crisp cold air of a mountain morning.
