” I consider the Grand Massif to be the most under-rated ski area in the Alps. The 265kms of piste are more exciting and varied than the motorways of Paradiski or the Trois Vallées”. Peter Hardy – The Daily Telegraph.
Also from the Telegraph “Nearby Mont Blanc acts as a giant fridge. Despite its modest altitude – the Grandes Plattières ridge at the top of the ski area is at 2,480m – Flaine has a more reliable snow record than any other resort in Europe.”
"Hope I can make the next three trips out to stay in Les Carroz this year (wherever you can put me) . Thanks for organising a season pass." David K
- There are heated lockers at the telecabine,each locker holds 4 sets of equipment for a very small weekly rental.
- Dont head straight for Flaine,many people attracted by the larger name resort miss some amazing local skiing.
- In bad weather stay in Carroz and Morillon for great visibility through the trees.
- There is a huge amount of accessible off piste,do take local advice and do be very careful in Flaine where the limestone base means that there are many holes and crevasses.
