The chalet is situated in the Vallee de la Manche cross-country ski area which has 25km of challenging circuits, and is the premier location in the region with its mix of flat and steep scenic trails. Sitting on the sunny balcony you can watch the skiers going along as they pass within 20 metres of the house.
In addition three other areas easily accessible from the chalet: Morzine-Avoriaz at Parc Naturel des Crêtes de Zorre with up to 47km for all levels, Lake Montriond with 10km of Canadian-style runs and the Pléney - Chavannes sector with 18km of forest runs.
ESF Morzine run twice daily cross country ski excursions (including transport) at 9.30am and 12.00pm, but there are other Ski Schools who offer Cross Country skiing lessons too. Just outside the valley you can also go to Les Contamines, Les Saisies, Chamonix and Val Ferret (in Italy, via the Mont Blanc Tunnel).
