Purpose built in the 1960s in a large bowl of powder facing West and aptly nicknamed the big snowy bowl, Flaine offers the widest range of skiing in the Grand Massif ski area.

Skiing & Boarding in Flaine

The ski area has fantastic views, taking in the Mont Blanc massif at the higher points. Beginners will find the nursery slopes at the foot of the Flaine Foret area as well as a small selection of green runs.

Intermediates are well catered for as the majority of the runs in the local area, as well as the wider full area, are blues and reds.

The 14km-long Cascades piste down to Sixt is more suited to skiers with its flat top section, but you are rewarded for the effort with the fantastic views.

Flaine for Beginners

A sociable ski bowl environment suited to beginners and families, the Grand Massif’s Flaine has one of the best snow records in Europe. It’s definitely worth heading up to the rim of the bowl from its centre to take in the views of the majestic Mont Blanc.

And for those who want to venture a little further afield, climb up out of the bowl and check out nearby Samoëns or expand your skiing horizons across the wider Grand Massif area.

About Flaine

Flaine is a perfect destination for families, with almost all the local runs depositing people back to the same location, while the easy to navigate bowl with a varied pistes work perfectly for mixed ability groups. Set within a snowy bowl, the resort boasts one of the best snow records in France, totaling an average of almost six metres a year.

With its runs being predominantly north-facing, the resort is renowned for maintaining fantastic snow throughout the season.and taken together with Samoëns, Sixt, Les Carroz and Morillion, these five resorts comprise the Grand Massif ski area, offering a total of 265kms, 73 lifts and 144 trails.

In addition to its suitability for families, there’s a wealth of off-piste terrain to ski both within the bowl and also over the top of the mountain ridges; ranging from tight tree lined runs to wide powder fields and backcountry dropping from 2500m down to 700m.
