Nothing beats the buzzing atmosphere of Morzine for New Year celebrations. Entertainment begins early, so small children can enjoy New Year's as much as their parents, and the party continues through the night!
The centre of Morzine hosts entertainment on New Year's Eve so that there's something for everyone to enjoy as soon as the sun goes down. The kids will appreciate the early New Year's 2024 celebrations, especially for them.
New Year with kids in Morzine
Let the kids celebrate without having to stay up until midnight! In Morzine, they can enjoy plenty of early-evening family fun, with street entertainers, face painting, illuminating light displays, ice skating and workshops.
The ESF (French ski school) perform a torchlit descent down the Pleney slopes to town, with a fireworks display to see in the early New Year. What better way for them to enjoy a ski holiday in December 2023.
New Year for adults in Morzine
Many revellers are happy wandering around town and absorbing the ambience of the New Year celebrations, but there are plenty of other options too.
Why not start with après ski with family and friends at one of the many bars in town, or even on the piste, such as La Folie Douce in Avoriaz (just make sure you catch the last lift back to Morzine in time). If you'd like to eat out on New Year's Eve 2024, make sure you book your restaurant table well in advance. This will give you the widest choice of options at this very popular time of year.
You might prefer to dine in at one of our luxury ski chalets in the Portes du Soleil villages - speak to your chalet host about the options. Choose a ski-in/ski-out chalet or one with an outdoor hot tub. Many of our self-catered chalets have log fires in their living rooms, which might make it difficult to tear yourselves away to head out for New Year's celebrations after dinner!
Morzine town centre is the place to be at midnight, with everyone there to watch the fireworks display and cheering in the New Year before heading back to bars and clubs to continue the celebration.
Skiing in Morzine at New Year
Although you might not feel like skiing first thing on New Year's Day, you're sure to ski on the days before and after. A New Year ski holiday at a self-catered chalet means you can sleep in or stay out without being tied to set breakfast and dinner hours, giving you the freedom to spend your ski break the way you want.
When you're ready to hit the slopes, you can buy a lift pass at a variety of places around Morzine, including the Super Morzine bubble in town, which is part of the Morzine lift system that connects to the entire Portes du Soleil ski area.
OVO Network chalets, offering luxury extras such as pools, saunas and more, are extremely popular with our guests, who reserve them well in advance. For the widest choice of New Year chalets in Morzine, book as early as possible.
