Yes, what Andy said.
Les Gets is a trek from Morzine, not a huge one, but wasted time if you only had a day.

I'd head up to Supermorzine, few runs there to warm up, then carry on over the hill to Chatel. Its awesome there. have some lunch. few more runs (make sure you ride down the Vink line whatever your ability - Huge!!!, but all rollable), then head back over for a warm down on Supermorzine. If you are feeling adventurous, take the black back down under the bubble, or the road is fun, but bit of a pedal at the bottom. Few beers in the bar on the roundabout center of town.

If Carlesberg did days out......

This guy knows Wink

Id disagree..LG is really quick and easy to get to and from Morzine....and deff worth it if only there for a day.

Some people have odd ideas though..last year I met a couple asking me the way to Morgin from top of Super M, this was the afternoon and the sky had some rather dark looking clouds...YOU DO NOT want to head over to Chatel or further field if the weather looks iffy and the lifts may close..you can find yourselves seriously stuck.

The important question while staying in Morzine is where to go for food now Mamma’s is closed? Anywhere else on par with this gem?

Hideout is amazing for food. If they're doing it again this year get the bang bang broccoli it's unreal. The Bec is great too.

Auberagade and Sherpa both do bring your own meat BBQ nights..great cheap eves out.

Chez Perysl is great for pizza and Shafty has a lil shack too for various late night snacks.

Mammas closed is surprise to me too.

Just back from my week in Morz.
Dusty as fuuuck. We had no rain. The Harley Days event was on which meant there were 10000 fat OAP's walking around in leather and denim. Music events were great but getting through town was a bit of a bitch. Not to mention the beer and food price was put up a bit for the event.
Mamma's is not closed. It has been rebranded and had new menu. The food is still awesome. Would recommend the chicken burger and pizzas.
The rules at Geneva airport have changed for airport pick ups and you now have to walk all the way down one end of the airport to the car parks for your pick up so get a trolley as soon as you get your luggage! We had a really shite time dragging our luggage without one!

Yep. Just home from Morzine myself.
1000's of harleys there this year due to an event next month being cancelled, so they all turned up at Morzine apparently.

Proper dusty. Mate of mine got some in his eye, rubbed it and cut his cornea on first day. Game over.

Chatel river gap has been changed. Boooo. Looks easier now as it will kick you up. Also looks shorter, and less landing area. Tables leading in been leveled too...

Great few days! Roll on next year!

Not sure on that one, will have a look as only seen it on video, but that looks fairly big. Confused
