Morillon & Morillon 1100 (Grand Massif)
For beginners there are a few green slopes at Morillon 1100 Les Esserts, and some blues to progress on. These all link back to the resort centre, making it a great environment to learn in. There’s also a moving carpet for beginners at 1100 and a small slope for them to practise those all-important first turns!
For intermediates, the slopes are really excellent – the long green Marvel forest run to Morillon 1100 (5km of piste) is an easy cruise with intriguing signs along the way explaining all about the local wildlife. Intermediates and boarders will enjoy the 49 red pistes and 15 black runs that are so numerous in the Grand Massif area, with its extensive intermediate slopes and big lift networks.
Don’t worry, all you hard-core skiers! Experts can find some tricky red and black runs above Morillon ski resort.
Boarders and twin-tip skiers have a choice of three purpose built terrain parks. Snow record from Morillon 1100 is generally good, and well above other resorts of same altitude. Snow cannons allow a useful top-up early and late season (from mid-April).
