The ski area of Le Grand Massif, with approximately 265km of pistes, is regarded as one of the best ski resorts in France. The area has an altitude of 900m to 2500m. The ski area Le Grand Massif is known as a snow-sure resort. If there is snow falling in the French Alpes, it likely to be snowing in Flaine! Every year we get many messages from guests who have chosen to return to Le Grand Massif, a strong sign that once visited you will want to keep going back!
The pistes of Grand Massif are well-connected, consisting of Flaine, Samoens, Morillon and Les Carroz. The combination of these areas, make it the fourth biggest ski area in France. This fantastic area offers plenty of options for skiers and snowboarders of every level. Novices and intermediate skiers can head to one of the many wide pistes that are also ideal for snowboarders.
Snowboarders in Le Grand Massif can also test their skills in one of Europe’s biggest snow parks that include a half pipe, boarder cross and various jumps. Highly experienced will be happy to know that there is a challenge in Grand Massif: Gers descent!
There are also plenty of off-piste route or you can head off on one of the longer ski trails. We recommend the Cascade, a fantastic descent lasting 14 km.
There are rarely waiting times or queues in Flaine but you can expect the resort to be relatively full during French school holidays. On location you can opt for a hands free lift pass.
