Flaine Ski Holidays
With a fantastic snow record, easy transfer from Geneva and jaw-dropping views across to Mont Blanc, family-friendly Flaine is the most popular resort in the Grand Massif. Love or hate its bold modernist architecture, you can’t argue with the outstanding quality of the skiing.
Enjoy the resort
Flaine is one of France’s most striking purpose-built resorts, with its stark Bauhaus design and distinct apartment buildings now classified as French Historical Monuments. Since the original resort was first built back in the ‘60s, the village has expanded to include the attractive chalet-style Flaine Montsoleil development, brought to you by the creators of the world-famous resort of Whistler in Canada.
Particularly popular with families, Flaine has a safe, relaxed feel to its predominantly traffic-free streets. You can enjoy a great choice of non-skiing activities, including, snowshoeing, snowkiting and dog sledding. Or why not make some memories with a breath-taking helicopter flight over the mighty Grand Massif?
Flaine’s après-ski is on the quieter side, centring mainly around its many scenic sun terraces and family-friendly restaurants and bars. Happy hour is a lively affair, after which many visitors find a soft, cosy bed is their idea of bliss.
Explore the slopes
As the fourth largest linked ski area in France, the Grand Massif offers an enormous choice of skiing and snowboarding for all levels. And while the highest point is a relatively modest 2,500m, with 80 percent of slopes facing north, the snow record is fantastic. From dedicated nursery slopes to the legendary runs of the Flaine snow bowl, this amazing ski area will appeal to everyone.
Descend the 14km blue Cascades run from the top of the Grandes Platières lift, or explore some of the area’s wonderful off-piste terrain (with a guide, of course). For advanced skiers, the Combe de Gers is an absolute must with a thigh-burning descent and first-class views.
Where to stay
As Flaine is a purpose-built resort, there’s a great choice of ski-in / ski-out accommodation available, meaning you can maximise your time on the slopes. With such an extensive ski area on your doorstop, you’ll definitely want to explore!
