Morillon Ski Resort
Morillon is a convenient valley village with direct access to the Grand Massif ski area.
A gondola and a chairlift rise up from the valley at 700m to the Chalet d'Claire, which opens up the entire Grand Massif network of slopes. That being said, beginners in particular may not even leave the local ski area, which is home to a good selection of greens and blues, offering very nice terrain for progression. More adventurous skiers should head across to the wide open Flaine bowl to perfect their off piste skills or to the the long Coulouvrier chairlift (installed in 2018/19) which opened up almost 1000m of tree-lined terrain above the village of Morillon itself.
Staying down in the valley means you might not be able to ski down at the end of the day, but you get a traditional village with good facilities and quick access to the slopes. The closer to the gondola you stay the better, or if you're looking for maximum convenience, the small satellite village of Morillon 1100 has easier access to the slopes and some family-friendly, slopeside accommodation. The quick access from Geneva (transfers typically take an hour) makes Morillon a great option for a weekend trip.
