The fabulous Portes du Soleil ski area straddles an impressive mountain range along the Swiss-French border just south of Lake Geneva (a.k.a Lac Leman).

Where is Portes du Soleil France/Switzerland?

Regardless of where one is heading in the Portes du Soleil, the gateway airport is Geneva (GVA). The journey to some villages is more difficult than others, however each is easily within 2hr travel of the airport.

The French heart of the Portes du Soleil ski resort at Morzine is only 80km by road east of the Geneva (GVA) international airport. Transport options from the airport are abundant & transfer time is super quick. Direct buses, combinations of train (to either Cluses or Thonon-les-Bains) & bus or private transfer make more sense than car rental. Avoriaz & Les Gets are accessible from Morzine. Châtel is more difficult, but best accessed via Thonon-les-Bains. The Pas de Morgins provides the only winter road connection between the two sides of the ski region between Châtel & Morgins.

On the Swiss side, the train is the recommended mode of travel. A fantastic local train goes directly to the cable car at Champery from the main Geneva-Montreux-Martigny-Brig line, with one change required at Aigle. At Powderhounds we love a train that goes straight to the ski lifts - such a wonderful way to journey to the snow & POW (Protect Our Winters). Morgins, Les Crosets & Champoussin are all the Aigle - Champery rail line & require a combination of train & bus to get too. Buses from Aigle train station also make the journey up to isolated Torgon.
