Part of the impressive Grand Massif ski area with something for everyone and a great snow record.
For beginners there is one of the longest and prettiest green runs in the Alps,for experts the huge off piste bowl of Gers behind Flaine.
Samoens is a historic and very pretty village based in the valley as popular in summer as winter.It is not a ski in ski out location access to the skiing and back is by the untra modern and ver efficient grand Massif telecabine which is located just out of the centre
” 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.”
