Morzine snow conditions
The weather in Morzine, as with any resort in the Alps, can change rapidly. Snow conditions in Morzine can vary from one valley to the next so it is important to dress and prepare for all likely alpine weather conditions. Use your local forecast but don’t take it as gospel. You should prepare for all types of weather in Morzine and the French Alps, including extreme cold, wind, snow, rain (hopefully not), cloud or fog and hot sunshine. It is important to wear sun cream when out on the mountain as the UV rays from the sun are reflected off the bright snowy surface.
The weather in Morzine over winter seasons is cold but not as harsh other higher altitude resorts. At resort level the average temperature generally reaches highs of 10 and lows of -10 degrees Celsius. Don’t be disheartened if precipitation falls as rain in Morzine itself as this will more than likely be falling as snow on the pistes. The freeze level can often be seen on the trees in the Super Morzine or Pleney valleys, less than 100 metres above the village.
