Morzine trip including Passportes Du Soleil 2012

Chalet Flo in Morzine.

This is a seven day trip to the French alps which means six and a half days of riding including a day doing the famous Passportes route.

The Passportes Du Soleil is a cross country mountain bike event that uses a circuit of the Portes Du Soleil ski region in France and Switzerland. Places like Les Gets, Morzine, Avoriaz, Chatel, Morgins and Champery.

We’ve got a great deal with Ski and Summer Morzine at Chalet Flo in Morzine. This large chalet is situated a few minutes away from the main lifts in Morzine and has space for up to thirty people.

Two of us stayed there last year – see our photos and report. There is a massive variety of riding available in the area – it’s not all knarly downhill runs. There’s a lot of wild cross country plus plenty of options on the trails.

We’ll be arriving on the Wednesday before the Passportes (27th June) and leaving on the following Wednesday (4th July).

The price for 7 nights accomodation, breakfast and three course evening meal is £299 per person (£43 per night).

Travel is extra – we’ll be driving over via cheap ferry deals.

    Hi I’m interested in doing the Passpeort du Soleil (I did it back in 2006 absolutely fantastic)

    Obviously I would join the Club something I have been meaning to do (I have been on a Croft Trail Building day)

    I see you have a comment of £43 a night, does that mean if there is room I could go for just 3 or 4 nights ?

    Also how were you planning on getting there? A mixture of Driving and Flying?

    Hi there, you can book and pay for fewer nights. We’re mainly driving out in pairs, something that we will finalise closer to the day. Transfers from Geneva are possible. Best thing to do is for you to telephone Ski Morzine and explain your requirements. I’m in regular contact with them too.

    Hi there,
    Is it still possible to book onto this event, if so what sort of price is it now?

  4. Tom

    For some reason my reply appears before the other Tom’s question!
    Yes, there are still spaces. I’ll check on the price.

    I believe there are still some spaces on the trip. Tom originally arranged a group booking but you’ve missed that so you’ll have to book accommodation direct. That’s easy though because Brenda (01932 837639) is really helpful, just tell her that you’d like to join the MB Swindon party. Rest (like travel etc.) we’re going to sort out nearer the time.

    OK so I have booked up and want to know what ferrys/times we are doing…..

  8. Tom

    Hi Tony – getting there is a free for all. Book whatever ferry suits you.
