About Us

The Mountain Lodge Company is run by it’s owners Richard & Karen Lees for the last 19 years.

Richard Lees

A Yorkshire man of two passions, in the winter it is Skiing, in the summer road cycling and golf (substitutes for Cricket!).  He now has over 21 years experience in the catered chalet and winter holiday industry, 19 of which have been in Morzine.

This extensive local knowledge of the entire domain ensures he is able to provide reliable advice on where is best to ski that day if you are overwhelmed by the size of the Portes Du Soleil, or in need of inspiration for returning visitors to this vast area.

Karen Griffiths

Incredibly well travelled painter and illustrator who has a studio within Les 4 Vents.  This allows her suitable light and energy to create, together with collected inspirations, paintings which are subtly displayed throughout the chalet. For more information.

Karen also runs the chalet behind the scenes answering your queries and sorting your stay before you arrive. Norah & Ida their daughters are a big part of chalet life too!
