Explained: The Portes du Soleil Multi Pass

Launched in 2009, the Portes du Soleil Multi Pass is a summer activity card giving free – or discounted – entry to a staggering number of activities across the Portes du Soleil area. Fifteen years ago the objective was to make summer holidays in the region more fun and affordable, and whilst that’s certainly been achieved over the years, here at Morzine Source Magazine we still answer A LOT of questions about the pass and how it works. Here we’ll answer all of your FAQs relating to the Multi Pass.

 

What does the Multi Pass include?

There are 12 different resorts in the Portes du Soleil, spanning two different countries. This summer there are 70 entirely free activities across the area for you to enjoy with your MultiPass, plus an additional 100+ reduced price activities. Free activities include access to 20 ski lifts in the summer lift network, bowling, cinemas, tennis, golf, climbing centres, ice skating rinks, swimming pools, trampoline parks, discovery centres and cultural sites.

Where do I buy my pass?

There are three different types of Multi Pass, how you acquire yours depends on a couple of things; where you’re staying and how long you’re here for.

The Stay Pass – €3 per person per day for the duration of your stay

You’re staying with a Multi Pass accredited accommodation provider so you’re entitled to this ridiculously cheap pass for the duration of your holiday. Your host will either include the cost of the Multi Pass within your holiday package, distributing them to you when you arrive, or they’ll give you access to the dedicated Multi Pass platform so you can arrange (and pay for) your own passes before collecting them from the lift pass office when you arrive in resort. In either scenario, the pass must be for the duration of your stay, with a minimum of two nights and a maximum of 21 nights. There are precisely 447 accredited Multi Pass hosts in the Portes du Soleil, varying from hostels, campsites and refuges to chalets, apartments and hotels.

The Day Pass – €14 per person per day, available on a day by day basis

You’re not staying with a Multi Pass accredited accommodation provider but you’re planning to use the summer lift network, enjoy loads of activities and explore the full area. You purchase these passes from the lift pass offices in each resort (note, not at the Office de Tourisme) when you arrive, or online in advance HERE.

The Season Pass – €100 for adults, €70 for youths (5-25 years)

If you’re holidaying in the Portes du Soleil for longer than seven days this summer (lucky you) and you’re not staying in a Multi Pass accredited accommodation, the season pass is fantastic value. You get access to all of the free and discounted activities between 24th May and 3rd November. Season passes can be purchased from the lift pass offices in each resort, and also online in advance HERE.

Do I need an actual pass?

Yes. If you’re ordering online in advance of your holiday, you can recharge any compatible plastic lift pass from a previous trip. Alternatively, you can buy these rechargeable passes at the lift pass office when collecting your Multi Passes. They’re priced at €1.50 each.

How much are the passes for children?

In all Multi Pass scenarios, children aged under five enjoy the Multi Pass entirely free!
