Sorry but I question the sanity of using plastic pedals in Morzine and those gates with the toe clips. SPD's let you out most of the time in a crash, those don't. In the early days of MTB when I was kid I used those kinds of clips and nailed myself on a few occasions.
Morzine is very steep with lots of braking bumps, the only UK track that truly replicates Alpine in terms of steepness, length and lack of grip is Fort William and maybe a few others. I've been thrown off on more than one occasion by braking bumps ripping my feet off the pedals in Morzine.
Get them wrap around shin pads and proper pedals - get a pair of 5 quid plastics for commuting.
Also I haven't smashed my shin since I moved to Spike Spanks from DMR's. The ridiculous amount of grip, combined with the low profile (foot is much closer to the rotational point0 and pedals that don't spin freely means it's very very hard to get thrown off them.
