How to Get Here:
The nearest airport to Morzine is the Geneva Airport. This might seem strange because Morzine is in France and Geneva is in Switzerland, but this is because Morzine is located very close to the French-Swiss border. Geneva airport is 80km from Morzine which takes roughly 1 hour and 30 minutes by car or airport transfer.

Getting Around:
Morzine has a network of 10 free village shuttles that connect the different areas in town and make getting around quite easy. Otherwise we recommend renting a car to get to and from the race venue.
