Morzine is truly a culturally diverse town that is rich in history and has something to offer everyone in terms of attractions and events. A Brief History The resort was originally a working farming .munity that was rich in heritage rather than purely a ski town. Its deep-rooted traditions, artisans and history allow it to distinguish itself from other ski resorts. Its history stretches back a long way to its origins in farming and slate mining. In 1734, the start of .mercial exploitation of slate in the region changed the village forever. The grey gold enabled Morzine to take its first step towards development and it provided local families with a necessary supplement to their in.es. In 1920, the village once again changed the course of its history when it opened the Grand Hotel. Some say that it only became a tourist destination as a result of the influence of the diplomats who were based in Geneva during that time who fell in love with the village. Since then, tourism has increased tremendously and has made the village one of the most popular ski resorts in the world. Events through the year Every summer, the Mont Blanc Rally .es throught the town and this year the Harley Davidson Rally Harley Days is shaping up to be a winner. In terms of music Status Quo has graced the stage in a free concert and for 2013 there is talk of Deep Purple making an appearance. Here are just some of the many up.ing events the resort will play host to at various times throughout the year.
