Skiing

The Grand Massif is one of the largest and most easily accessible ski areas in the French Alps, perfect for an invigorating, energising break. Comprised of five interlinked resorts – Samoëns, Morillon, Les Carroz, Sixt and Flaine – it boasts more than 265km of wide, groomed pistes, and an unlimited supply of pure, clean air!

Close to Mont Blanc, the area is renowned for its reliable snow record, and has terrain for beginners to advanced, making it ideal for family holidays. Skiing is on open, or tree-lined pistes with gorgeous scenery and milder temperatures – enjoyable even in whiteout conditions. And there are numerous bars and restaurants on the mountain for regular pit stops – we’ll be happy to recommend our favourites.
