While all ski resorts are now strongly promoting their pro-environmental actions, the resort of Morzine appears to be going the extra mile with local businesses getting together to form a non-profit group dedicating to looking at ways to get active to fight climate change, calling it Montagne Verte.
Among numerous initiatives they've created The AlpinExpress Pass which gives skiers and snowboarders arriving by train up to 10% off Morzine
-Les Gets ski passes, ski hire, transfers, accommodation, and eating out with its wide range of partners.
Morzine is a 40 minute drive from Cluses and Thonon-les-Bains while Avoriaz
is an hour's drive from both (the closest stations). Private transfers from these stations can also be booked with local transfer companies who are AlpinExpress partners.
Picking rail travel instead of flying and/or driving, uses around 66-80 percent less carbon.
In addition, to help guests make savvy choices, Morzine-Avoriaz has also created the GO MORZINE AVORIAZ App. This platform allows travellers to see different ways to reach the resort – the fastest, the most cost effective, and the lowest carbon footprint.
The App also means holidaymakers can plan, book and pay for their journey in one go, from anywhere in the world, and easily select the most environmentally-favourable option.
