Morzine Road Closures & Restrictions during Le Tour de France 2023

We’ve translated the official road plan into English, it indicates the dates and times of traffic restrictions in Morzine village centre on 14th and 15th July 2023. In a nutshell, don’t try to drive into the village.

Parking & Shuttle Bus Arrangements in Morzine during Le Tour de France

It will be impossible to drive into, around or through Morzine village centre on 14th and 15th July because of Le Tour de France. It’s therefore recommended that you use one of several car parks on the outskirts of the village and then use the free shuttle bus service to access the village.

Where’s the best place to watch the race descend into Morzine?

Without doubt you should heat to the top of the Col de Joux Place to watch the riders finish their last climb before descending into Morzine. As a guide, the race is expected to pass over the Col de Joux Plane at 5pm. The Charniaz chairlift will open on 15th July, giving you quick and easy access to the race, with several excellent spectator points on the roadside.

– The Charniaz chairlift will be open between 10am and 7pm so you can spectate from the Col de Joux Plane or along the route during its final stages.
– To access the race, take the Pleney gondola (opens at 9am) and follow the marked route along Les Granges piste to each the bottom of the Charniaz. At the top of the lift, take up your position ahead of the race or walk for 33 mins (according to Google Maps) to the Col de Joux Plane.
– An alternative is on foot from the Nyon plateau, which you can access via the Nyon cable car (opens at 10am). There’ll also be a shuttle bus (9 seater) to reach the foot of the Chemin des Raverettes. This shuttle will also operate in the other direction, bringing people up from La Charniaz to the Nyon plateau. The Nyon cable car will close at 7:30 p.m.
*These times are subject to change depending on weather conditions.

***Use of the Nyon cable car, the Pleney gondola and the Charniaz chairlift are included with a valid Multi Pass
***Portes du Soleil ski passes will also allow access to the Chairlift.
(For information, the ascent and descent cannot be done simultaneously, which means the lifts will operate in an upwards direction before the race arrives and a downwards direction one it’s all over)

(A stop is planned at the turn of the cemetery / route de la Manche at the level of the “visitor info” point.)
There will also be a bus from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on the route de la Plagne.


Also on Saturday 15th, Les Gets have created a FAN ZONE at the Col du Ranfoilly (at the top of the Nauchets chairlift) to welcome the riders. You’ll be able to follow the entire 14th stage of the Tour de France on a giant screen with a bar and catering to keep you refreshed before the riders arrive.
The LES GETS FAN ZONE opens at 12noon and the official Le Tour de France caravan will pass through at around 3.30pm. The riders are expected to pass over the col at around 5pm before their descent to the finish line in #Morzine.
– Take the Chavannes chairlift (open 9am – 5.30pm) then walk for 10 minutes to the fan zone. The price per person is €5 or free with your Portes du Soleil MultiPass.
*Note the Chavannes chairlift cannot be used for your descent, you’ll walk 20 minutes down to the Chavannes telecabine instead. It’s open 10am – 6.30pm and your descent is free of charge.

I’m staying in Avoriaz / elsewhere in the Portes du Soleil, how can I get to Morzine to watch the race?

Some of the key lift links between Avoriaz and Morzine will open later on Saturday 15th. The Prodains Express and the Ardent telecabine will open until 8pm, as is the Chaux Fleurie connection with the wider Portes du Soleil lifts for those coming from further afield.

Information for Morzine residents.

Between 7th and 16th July 2023, the roads through the village will be disrupted in preparation for the arrival of Le Tour.

Which route will le Tour take out of Les Gets on Sunday 16th July?

Les Gets hosts a stage depart of Le Tour de France for the first time in its history. In the village square (on the site of the current pump track) there’ll be activities and entertainment all day. The official parade of Le Tour will pass along the Front de Neige, turn and pass along the rue de Centre from 11.05am on Sunday 16th July. This is a fantastic spectacle and shouldn’t be missed. The riders will depart from outside the Office de Tourisme at 13.05pm, turning onto the rue de Centre and leaving Les Gets on the D903, direction Taninges and on to St Gervais Mont Blanc. There are many excellent spectator points along the route.


How do I get from Morzine to Les Gets on Sunday 16th to watch the race depart?

The road between Morzine and Les Gets closes at 6am on this day but there’ll be free shuttle busses running between the villages from 7am until 5pm.

The two shuttles connect the bottom of the Pleney with the Colombière roundabout in Les Gets with a passage every 15 minutes. From the map below, it also looks like there’s a stop en-route at the Savoy Hotel roundabout.

Naturally, we can expect these two shuttles to be extremely busy. An alternative is to take the Pleney lift and walk down to Les Gets to watch the race, or cycle along the road between the villages.

In the meantime, good luck to everyone involved in the planning of these massive events!
