Morin – A Chalet for All Seasons


November 2022

Who would have thought that we would have such an amazing range of weathers all in one season.  Luckily we are is such a wonderful part of the world that all our guests have had  5-star stays* at Morin.

Early November brought the first signs of winter snows – just enough to tempt everyone up the mountains for a bracing hike and catch the autumnal colours.  December then delivered the first snow dump – covering absolutely everything in site – including the hot tub.

Our snow shoes were once again pressed into service to reach The Green House across the duvet-like garden.  The lifts opened at weekends throughout December and Morin welcomed guests from the end of November too.

Christmas & New Year came by without fresh snow for the first time in some years.  If the snow wasn’t coming to us we went to it – Tony & Olivia getting guests to re-located lessons and doing everything possible to make sure everyone had a great time.  Our reviews* are a testament to their determination to take care of guests and friends and go the extra mile – literally –  to Ardent or Prodains.  The pisteurs should definitely take a bow too – by the time I got onto skis in early February there was more than enough to go round – albeit off-piste was challenging – but not off bounds when we donned snow shoes once again.  It was cold and crisp and the blue skies dazzling.  A well needed shot in the arm – and this time it wasn’t covid!

We are due to have another seasonal dump of snow in a few days’ time, ready to refresh the mountains for the last of the half-term holidays.  So roll on March – let’s see what you’ve got in store, and no matter what we’ll make sure everyone has a great time at Morin.  I can’t believe I’m saying this now – but we are looking forward to the warmer months so that we can get to grips with the lawn and prepare the garden for spring & summer guests to Morin in Morzine.

Here’s someone who is definitely enjoying the snow – its never too early – our grandson just 3 years old –  smashing it (as they say apparently) – just like Morin!
