At Flaine the skiing is good and the lift system is well laid out and modern. The snow record is also good and there should be something for every level of skier. However, it is the intermediates that are best catered for at Flaine. There is also some good off-piste riding to be had but local knowledge is essential to avoid a number of hidden dangers. Local guides at Flaine offer good value trips. Off the slopes; well you are in a concrete jungle. Local services in the car free town are basic and eating out options are limited. The night life is aimed at hardcore boozing in loud tacky pubs. 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. Flaine itself has 140kms of terrain including 29 lifts and 60 groomed trails.

Resorts close to Flaine include: Les Carroz (5 km), Morillon (9 km), Samoens (9 km), Sixt (9 km), Combloux (12 km),

Visitor Reviews of Flaine


Jason from United Kingdom writes:

Skied a 4 day break in Flaine/G Massif in 08. The architecture is really quite engaging, not ugly. It's made for looking out of, rather then looking at. Different, perhaps, but sharp and rather cool. Link (singular and, crucially, weather permitting) to the rest of the ski area provides softer and easier (early intermediate) skiing down to Samoens, Les Carroz and Morillon. Prices, at the time, were rather stiff for beers, food etc. considering that this is, primarily, a self catering resort. I recall a pint costing 7 Euros par at the time and a meal on the hill around 12. Apres was fairly quiet. The Flying Dutchman, esp on bbq night, and the Perdrix being the pick.
I intend to revisit the Grand Massif in March 2015. I like the size of the area, short transfer, variety of the ski villages, affordability of accommodation and lack of pretension that comes with this proper resort. I just hope the beer prices have not gone up!
