Geneva Airport is conveniently located for the finest resorts around the Haute Savoie region and they’re all within a ninety-minute drive. The French region of Haute Savoie borders both Switzerland and Italy. Here you will find great resorts such as Chamonix, Morzine and Avoriaz. 


The views surrounding Chamonix are breathtaking. Overlooking this beautiful valley is Europe’s highest mountain, Mont Blanc. The main ski areas in Chamonix are: Le Tour, Le Grands Montets and Aiguille du Midi. 


The fabulous slopes around Morzine are suitable for all levels of skier, and snowboarding is very popular here too. The snow parks are world class, as is Morzine’s challenging off piste terrain. 


Situated high above Morzine, Avoriaz is well known for its quirky architecture and is a great little place for a skiing holiday. Its futuristic style buildings are built into surrounding cliffs, yet in total contrast, the town is car free, meaning horse-drawn sledges are the local mode of transport.
