Description

The Pointe de Nyon leisure area is a sector dedicated to contemplation and discovery of the mountain, its inhabitants and their activities.
The Pointe de Nyon leisure area is more than just a ski area. It’s for skiing, contemplation and discovering the mountain, its inhabitants and their activities. This area is accessible on skis from Morzine centre or Les Gets, or on skis or foot by the Pointe de Nyon cable car. There is a large free car park at the bottom of the cable car and free shuttle buses from the centre of Morzine. At the top of the cable car is the Pointe de Nyon restaurant, nestling at an altitude of 1,500m, which also houses the aviaries of the Aigles du Léman. Le pas de l'Aigle: the immensity of the Alps beneath your feet Perched at an altitude of 2019 metres, the pas de l'Aigle offers visitors a unique vertiginous sensation. A 15-metre footbridge, boldly clinging to the mountain, offers a thrill that promises to make your heart beat faster. It offers 350 metres of vertical drop below and a breathtaking panorama between Mont Blanc and Lake Geneva. Get ready for a memorable adventure! You can also admire the sculpture created by Morzine artist Robert Vernet... Access on skis via the pointe de Nyon chairlift. *Price: Free (with ski pass) Snowshoe outing : In Nyon, set off on a winter snowshoeing adventure!
