I have booked Hotel Champs Fleuris for Christmas 2016 prior to checking the snow history for Morzine. The reviews worry me slightly, my husband and son have skied previously in Austria, but this is mine and my youngest's first time! Booking as a surprise for my husband you can imagine it would be so disappointing if there was no snow, although I realise we have no control of the World's climate. I notice from reviews that people have travelled to Avoriaz and Chamonix to find the snow! Are these resorts easy to get to and do they have more likelihood of snow at that time of year?
I'd appreciate any feedback - thanks guys :)
Can't tell you about Chamonix but getting to Avoriaz is quite straightforward. First option is the free road-train which stops around 30 metres from the hotel & runs on a circular route through the centre of Morzine taking you to the Super-Morzine gondola. This links into the Avoriaz sector. Second, more direct option is to get the free shuttle bus (navette) from the bus stop on the main road to Les Prodains. From here a large newish gondola takes you right up to the centre of Avoriaz. This bus runs very frequently & takes about 10-15 min to get to Les Prodains.
Avoriaz is higher than Morzine & has a good snow record although I understand it can get quite congested if snow conditions are poor elsewhere. Hope this helps. Enjoy your holiday. You'll like the Champs Fleuris!
