Ski in style and stay at the luxurious Chalet La Grande Ourse and Chalet La Petite Ourse in Morzine, the French Alps, this season
Brand-new for the 2017-18 ski season, AliKats Mountain Holidays has taken on two sumptuous chalets in Morzine, the French Alps, increasing their beautiful hand-picked accommodation to six.
Chalet La Grande Ourse (Chalet Big Bear) and Chalet La Petite Ourse (Chalet Little Bear) are both based in Morzine, the Portes du Soleil. Comprising 12 resorts between Mont Blanc, France and Lake Geneva, Switzerland, Morzine is a traditional market town home to many friendly locals. With 600 km of slopes on offer, and access to fantastic off piste, the region is ideal for all levels of skier.
Plus, for those non-skiers, there are multiple activities on offer: hop onto a snow mobile and zoom through the woods, clip into a pair of snowshoes and explore the hidden paths, visit Aquariaz – a tropical-themed water park – in the neighbouring village of Avoriaz, and sign up for a spot of night sledging with head torches.
Make the most of the exciting resort and stay at the two indulgent chalets new to AliKats Mountain Holidays, both of which are conveniently located five minutes away from the ski lifts by bus, and 15 minutes from the town centre by foot.
