Most of the runs in Morillon are wide blues and reds through the trees ,with a Nursery area and Jam Park for the children. The slopes of Les Carroz are 1 lift away and it takes about half an hour to ski to Flaine or Samoens. The Grand Massif (hands free) lift pass covers all these areas and also includes a days skiing in nearby Les Gets, Morzine and the rest of the Portes de Soleil.
