An interview with Sam Thomas and Jon Dredge of More Mountain in Morzine, published in the July 2018 issue of Living France.
Nestled in the heart of Portes du Soleil, one of the most important ski destinations in the world, is Morzine, an authentically preserved resort town which is just as attractive in summer as it is in winter. Morzine’s charm and friendly, laid-back atmosphere did not go unnoticed by Sam Thomas and Jon Dredge when they first visited in 2006.

“Jon and I left Manchester in 2004 in search of new adventures and ended up doing back-to-back winter seasons around the world for 18 months,” Sam recounts. “We started off in Whistler, Canada followed by Queenstown, New Zealand where we stayed for nearly six months. Finally, we went back to Europe and did a season in the Three Valleys, and that’s where everything started.”
