Ski Holidays in Flaine, France

Skiing Holidays in Flaine

A ski holiday in Flaine offers excellent skiing for all abilities. Flaine is known as the 'White Desert' for its excellent snow, but the town itself is perhaps a little less idyllic considering its 1960s architecture. Visitors undoubtedly come to Flaine for its skiing, rather than its Alpine charm.
Flaine Ski Holidays: The Skiing
As the centrepiece of the Grand Massif ski area, Flaine is linked to Samoens, Morillon and Les Carroz, with 265km of piste in total. The skiing is extensive and varied, with trees, moguls and motorways. All levels of skier will find something to suit on Flaine skiing holidays, with great off- piste being one of Flaine's major strengths. Boarders and freestyle skiers also have a park and a boardercross course. Queues have been significantly reduced on skiing holidays in Flaine, thanks to massive investments in the lift system over the last two years.

Flaine Ski Holidays: Off the Snow
As with many purpose-built French resorts, cosy mountain charm is at a minimum in Flaine; but a fine arts centre and Picasso sculptures go some way to address this situation. Upgrading is needed for some of the many self-catering ski holiday apartments in Flaine, which can be 'bijou' to say the least. The one big advantage is that almost all ski accommodation in Flaine is ski-in-ski-out, so if you prefer comfort over charm this could be the right choice for you. Flaine's après-ski venues aren't great; much of the evening's activities revolve around the few hotel bars and the White Grouse pub. Families, though, will like the excellent ski school kindergartens, the short transfer (90kms to Geneva - so good for weekends, too) and the car-free environment.

Overall, Flaine ski holidays are great for skiing - which is excellent - and that's pretty much it. Classic no-frills French skiing…
