Slope runs for self catered chalets
We want to make your holiday as relaxed and carefree as possible. Trekking through the resort with your ski boots on, helping kids carry their equipment (without losing that one annoying glove) and waiting for the bus with hungry and tired little skiers are all hassles that can be avoided by booking our Slope Run service.

Self Catered Chalets:
Slope Runs make life easier for you and your family by driving you to and from the ski slopes. We’ll get you as close to the ski lifts as possible and ensure we are ready and waiting at the agreed pick up spot at the end of your afternoon.
Slope runs are available for guests staying in Chalet Lumina, Petit Lumina and Chalet Soleil d’Or. Our driver will take you to Pleney, Prodains or Ardent télécabines.
Morning pick up time slots from the chalet are: 08.30, 09.00, 09.30 & 10.00
Afternoon pick up time slots from the slopes are: 15.30, 16.00, 16.30, 17.00, 17.30 & 18.00
How to book
Please book your Slope Runs in our shop before you arrive at the resort or up to 24 hours before you need them. They will be priced according to the distance of the trip and are for return trips for up to 8 people.
For this system to work efficiently we urge you to be on time so that the driver is not late for the next lift. The driver will wait up to 5 minutes after your booked slot.
This service is available in winter from 10th December to 17th April only.
Which drop off point should you choose?
The Portes du Soleil is a vast resort so don’t worry if you don’t know where to start your day! We know the fastest routes to the slopes and the best drop off points to help you avoid the crowds. Here is an overview of the main drop off points to access the ski lifts and where they lead to on the mountain.
Pleney drop off
The Pléney télécabine is the main lift from Morzine town centre and takes you into the Morzine-Les Gets ski area.
This is a great choice for families, mixed groups and beginners. At the top of the télécabine beginners can enjoy green nursery slopes, whilst more advanced skiers can access more steep and challenging red runs and intermediates can cruise down tree-lined blue pistes.
They all end up at the bottom of the télécabine making it easy to reunite as a group. The afternoon sun catches this side of the mountain so be sure to enjoy a sundowner in one of the restaurants before heading down.
Prodains drop off
Located just down the valley, the Prodains télécabine takes you directly to Avoriaz in just under 4 minutes. From here you can access the highest areas of the ski resorts, up to 2466m. The area boasts 250km of red and blue runs, and thrill-seekers can take on the Swiss Wall, as well as more steeper black runs from the Hauts Forts.
There are also gentle runs for beginners, and Procolou just below Avoriaz, is great for children and leads to the Lil’Stash, a naturally made play area with tree houses, ropes and a slide, all tucked away in an enchanted forest. Boarders and freestylers have plenty to do with five snowparks including two half-pipes and the Stash –the big brother of the Lil’Stash with over 100 modules.
Ardent drop off
The high-speed 10-man Ardent bubble grants access to Avoriaz, Chatel and Switzerland, via Les Lindarets. Less busier than the other starting points, this is a great option on any day at any point in the season. The well defined bowl that is Les Lindarets acts as a natural meeting point with plenty of restaurants and lift access to connect to the different areas. From here you can also jump on the 6-seater Prolays chairlift to enter The Stash or head over to Avoriaz.

Superb service from booking to leaving. The AliKats team are extremely helpful and efficient. Our chalet was pristine and very well serviced. I would highly recommend them!
