A Winter 2024 Preview

While the long, hot, sunny days on the shores of Lac de Montriond continue to keep us entertained into mid-September, there’s no denying that the evenings are creeping in. With this comes thoughts of winter… too soon? Not if you’re already planning a ski trip to the incredible Portes du Soleil.

Hotel du Lac is located mid-way between the lively, bustling ski town of Morzine and the high-altitude, snow-sure playground of Avoriaz. Our guests enjoy easy access to both using the free ski bus, which stops directly outside of the hotel several times an hour during the winter season. The journey between Hotel du Lac and the pistes of Avoriaz is just five minutes; catching first lifts has never been easier.
