Where to Party in Morillon

Morillon is not a great place for a party aside from a couple of bars – the Madison Pub, which is a bar/grill with a pool table and live music, and Bar Le Bon Coin (+33 450 90 10 57). It’s a resort that’s aimed at family skiing, with lots of other activities including a cinema, ski-joring, dog-sledding (+33 677 82 09 45), ice-skating and curling (+33 450 90 15 76), paragliding (+33 450 90 30 08), and hot-air ballooning (+33 450 90 00 04). Hotel Le Morillon has a welcome spa for apres-ski relaxation.

There’s an annual cross-country skiing festival – Haut Giffre Festi’Nordic – at the end of January each year, and at the beginning of March the Morillon Carnival is celebrated by bringing together the whole village to enjoy a giant omelette.

In Sixt things are quieter still. La Buvette du Boret (+33 660 16 27 55) is the main offering, and the other highlight is at 6.30pm on Sundays when the Tourist Office invites visitors for a welcome vin chaud and on Thursdays there is tomme cheese-making at Cash’ta (+33 450 90 10 97). Non-skiing activities include mountain walks, snowshoe outings, dog-sledding, a via-ferrata (a type of ladder fixed directly onto the rock), and ice-waterfall climbing (see Where to Learn for more details of this).
