Cross Country Skiing
What is Ski de Fond?
Cross country skiing or Ski de Fond (as it’s known in France) sees participants covering long distances on skis on varied terrain. You’ll follow pre-made tracks or tram lines traversing through some of the most beautiful back country routes in the region. It’s a real favourite with people who like a bit of a work out, enjoy seeing a different part of the landscape and want to do a little less of the speedy downhill stuff. In Morzine and Les Gets, there are some great cross country trails. Head to the top of the Pleney to follow the route that joins the two resorts or you can travel further afield to the Super Morzine side and enjoy a long course that skirts around the Zore piste. We provide information and guidebooks in all of our catered and self catered chalets to help you make the most of your winter holiday.
We can easily help you arrange a guide for some cross country skiing and all equipment can be hired from shops in town. We use Francois Baud in Morzine which has a great selection of cross country skis and gear. In Les Gets, Les Perrieres shop also has plenty of equipment to help get those interested in Ski de Fond up and running. Cross country skiing isn’t easy and takes a little bit of time to master, however its fun, exhilarating and helps you to explore a part of the resort that not everybody gets to see. It’s definitely worth it if you like a bit of a work out!
