Winter holidays and ski short breaks
We have been involved in providing ski holidays in Morzine in the French Alps for 19 years, so it would be silly not to share our passion with you. Key ingredients of a Footprint winter holiday or short break is excellent hospitality amid idyllic scenery wide with a range of winter holiday activities.
We are particularly passionate about down-hill skiing – it’s a very natural way to discover winter landscapes, not to mention very convivial. But it is, of course, up to you how you spend your holiday in the snow – you can also enjoy downhill skiing away from the crowds, winter walking, snowshoeing, dog-sledding and much more. Our hand-picked hotels, catered chalets and small cruise ships, coupled with the wide range of activities to choose from, means your winter holiday will be truly unique.
We offer luxury catered chalets in exceptional locations, wonderful food cooked by restaurant experienced chefs and our service is all about attention to detail. Every one of our chalets is run by welcoming chalet hosts, employed for their charming, attentive, yet unobtrusive service. We are very proud of what we do and we really care about your ski holiday.
In addition to our week-long ski holidays which include stays during the Christmas holidays, we offer a range of mid week short break and ski weekend holidays in our catered chalets. Not forgetting our 12 day Northern Lights Voyage of Discovery cruise along the Norwegian coastline south to north and back again, crossing the Arctic Circle twice.
The ski area spans two countries – France and Switzerland and fourteen resorts. This huge area is an obvious rival to the Three Valleys for the title of ‘largest ski area in Europe’, but lift passes, hotels and restaurants are all cheaper here.
