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


Tom B-C from United Kingdom writes:

Went to Flaine in February half-term 2013.

Drove down from the Eurotunnel on the Friday, with absolutely no problems (however, I did hear the Saturday was a disaster). Accessability, for me anyway, is good. Snow chains were required for the last 2km - although the locals drive very quickly and don't seem to need them!.

The snow was absolutely epic: 4 metres at the top and 2.5 meters at the bottom.

Yes, Flaine is ugly and now looking tired, however, who looks at the buildings when you are coming down the pistes?

The only gripe I have is that the food and drink prices are horrendous, 8 euro a pint, a portion of chips and a can of coke 10 Euros. Main meals start at 10 Euros. Follow the example set on other reviews; buy food and drink at the bottom of the mountain and stay in your appartment for meals.

However, the skiing was the best I have ever had which made up for the expensive prices.
