Getting There & Away

Les Portes du Soleil is straightforward to get to from Geneva airport, 83km to the west. A plethora of buses and shared taxis run from the airport to the resorts. Door-to-door transfers need to be booked in advance and start at around €25. Morzexpress (www.morzexpress.com) is a reliable operator.

Altibus (www.altibus.com) line 91 links Les Portes du Soleil's three resorts with the railheads of Thonon-les-Bains (€8 to €15, one hour, one to six daily) and Cluses (€8, one hour, one to 10 daily). It's worth calling (08 20 32 03 68), or asking a tourist office to do so, to ensure the bus service is running, particularly if you're planning to travel at weekends or the very beginning or end of ski season.

Within the Morzine area, free shuttle buses serve all the lifts between mid-December and mid-April, including a dainty miniature train that trundles between the Super Morzine lift and Plénéy.
