After waking up and moving the car into a better locations for a quicker departure we head into the main village for some sight seeing. Morzine is a very picturesque mountain town. Nestled in a small saddle before the climb to Avoriaz, itself visible from the town is perched on the edge of a cliff. Chalets galore here. Travis is soaking up the timber frame work documenting all he can. This is kind of like Stowe, Vermont x10. Everything is built to impress and it does. The scene here is a buzz. There is a sprint point in town before the final climb so there is a lot of activity here. Right now we are hanging for some coffee.
Juiced up and ready to go we check out the shops and more architecture. The riders are not expected until 4:30PM so we have a good part of the day to relax. Come three o'clock and time to head for the climb for some tight corner action.
