Morzine COVID-19 winter plans
“This winter, more than ever we’ll want to experience the joys of skiing, of freedom and nature, but we will want to feel safe while we do so,”
Morzine has announced the COVID-19 measures and plans it will put in place for the coming 20/21 winter season. We believe Les Gets and Avoriaz will follow suit, as we all wish to keep our visitors to Portes du Soleil safe.
The Lift System
The Portes du Soleil ski area totals 600km and is partially open from the 11th of December.
It opens fully from the 18th December
There is cancellation insurance available on the Portes du Soleil ski pass.
New procedures were put into place across the Portes du Soleil this summer to ensure safety.
The lift companies implemented all health and safety measures specified by the government.
The national operating body for ski areas will announce national guidelines later this autumn, but it is expected there will be similar measures for winter.
Currently, the Portes du Soleil lift operators are not planning to reduce numbers on the lifts and will keep 100% of capacity this winter.
Currently planned safety measures on the Morzine-Les Gets ski area are as follows:
- Wearing a mask is compulsory in the waiting areas, at boarding, and on the ski lifts.
- No limitation on the number of visitors to the ski area has been set to date.
- People are encouraged to buy online to beat the queues and avoid contact with people.
- Observe social distancing when queuing (ground markings will be in place).
- Hand sanitizer will be available at checkouts and at the entrance to ski lifts.
There is currently no planned limit on the number of skiers in group lessons, but masks need to be worn at the beginning of the lesson by everyone over the age of 11.
In the booking offices and all interior spaces, mask-wearing is obligatory, hand gel is available and all surfaces are regularly disinfected.
All material used is also disinfected between each use.
You will need to wear a mask in the shops, and hand gel is available.
