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.
