Morzine has an authentic Savoyard charm and dates back to the 16th century and has been a ski resort since before World War l. Wealthy guests arrived to spend the winter at the comfortable Grand Hotel. The first cable-car was installed in 1934. In 1960 the ski industry developed after the success of Jean Vuarnet who won a gold medal for downhill in the VIII Winter Olympics in Squaw Valley. He started the development of Avoriaz on the cliff top above the town and linking this purpose built village to Morzine and other resorts in the region, both in France and Switzerland. The first link was built in 1968 and the single lift pass for the Portes du Soleil was introduced in 1974. Before skiing, Morzine depended on slate mining, the first commercial mining being in 1734. In the 1800’s slate was split into sheets and formed tiles which provided significant employment in Morzine. The first slate quarry provided the material used to clad the church. Morzine slate is of high quality and beauty with its veined grey-blue hues. Slate mining still continues today.
