Morzine Mountain Bike Survey

July 29th, 2014 by in Summer

The Tourist office in Morzine have put together a Mountain bike survey for anyone who has biked in Morzine for one or more days. It allows you to give your opinion on what they can improve and develop in the area. At the end of the summer they will take the Morzine mountain bike survey and look at what economic effects mountain biking has on Morzine as a town, ie the shops, bars, restaurants etc.. and what your opinion is of the infrastructure that is in place now for mountain bikers, plus what your thoughts are on what improvements can be made.  You can find it here on our Facebook Page please feel free to share the post and spread the word the more people who fill it in the better. Don’t forget to like our page too while you are there ;-).

Or simply scan the image below with your mobile phone.

Morzine Mountain bike Survey

This is your chance to have your say about the trails and facilities for mountain bikers in Morzine and help the tourist office improve and develop this town better to cope with the needs of those of us who ride bikes. More bike washes? better maintained trails? more trails? what sort of trails? In the past 7 summers we have seen many changes, lots more trails, new lifts, better signage of the trails and this year it is more noticeable that there are maintenance teams on the mountain repairing and trying keep the trails in shape throughout the summer.

 

We want Morzine to keep improving and it is great that the tourist office are now realising that with your feedback they can make Morzine bigger and better.

So put the kettle on and fill in the survey only takes 5 minutes to have your say plus you can win entry to the PassPortes Du Soleil event and a free day pass for summer 2015.

Snow in Lindarets October ’13

Has Morzine snow yet? We are well on the way to winter here in Morzine with the locals forecasting lots of snow and a legendary season ahead. There’s an old Savoyard farmer’s saying “Snow before Toussaint, wicked winter to come” – Toussaint falls on November 1st and is the last French bank holiday before Christmas. I am happy to report that there is now snow both at the top of the Pleney and in Avoriaz thanks to the wintery weather over the last weekend. Our chalets in Morzine look set to provide the perfect base for you to enjoy excellent conditions this winter.  (more…)
