Great off piste skiing - you won't get bored, amazing randonee routes - ski de fond - what more could you wish for________________________ Hi,I want to go to Morzine-Avoriaz in february 2013. I will be with my wife and 3 children. Maybe you can clarify a few doubts i have:- If i stay in Morzine, are there ski deposits close to the gondola? I dont want to carry skis and children from the hotel to the gondola and vice versa. If there are no ski deposits, than i need to find acomodation close to the gondola to Avoriaz.- Morzine seems to have a lot more acomodation options than Avoriaz. Did you stay there ? Is it a hassle to go everyday from Morzine to Avoriaz and from there to the pistes?Thanks,Tomas
