Nestled at the heart of the Grand Massif ski area, Flaine is lift-linked to Samoens, Morillon and Les Carroz, with 265km of piste in total.
The skiing is extensive and varied, leading Flaine to acquire the nickname "the white desert" for its excellent snow. With trees, moguls, motorways, and great off-piste, all levels of skier will find something to suit. Boarders and freestyle skiers also have a park, and a boardercross course.
Flaine ski resort
Visitors undoubtedly come to Flaine for its skiing rather than its Alpine charm, with the town itself being constructed in the 1960s style. Most ski holiday accommodation in Flaine is of a good standard and is more often than not "ski-in-ski-out".
The resort is modern, practical and convenient, with diverse accommodation and ski areas that are easy to get around and well signposted. Some visitors may criticize its heavily-concrete development, but the resort has historically embraced it and has even won architectural awards!
The 1600-2500m altitude slopes see huge popularity during the ski season, which runs from December through to April. Many families return year after year, a testament to Flaine's accessible and sociable image.
Flaine has a short transfer from Geneva (90 mins) and a car free environment make Flaine a great destination for family ski holidays and short breaks.
Lots of non ski activities including Spa with different treatments on offer.
