FLAINE - Information

Resort Information  FLAINE

The purpose built resort of Flaine is a great place for a holiday, either for a week or just a short break. If you like convenience and enjoy wide-open spaces with plenty of cruiser skiing and snowboarding then you will love Flaine. The resort’s original modern-style heart has been extended and of late a lot of chalet style properties have been built. Much of the resort is on one side of a valley end and offers views of the rest of this snowy bowl. With the resort having been built at the level of the skiing, it is possible to ski to and from much of the accommodation. As Flaine is one of the closest resorts to Geneva airport, it is easy to get to and this makes it an excellent choice for a weekend break.Much of Flaine’s skiing is set in the vast snowy bowl in which the resort lies. It is a great resort for beginners with some lovely nursery terrain. The nature of the resort’s lay makes it a good place for families too. There is an extensive lift system that along with the pistes is well laid out and makes for little queuing except on the busiest of days. The bowl offers plenty of scope for intermediates, with some entertaining blue and red trails leading back to the village. The Grand Massif domain extends way beyond the bowl and the area lift ticket also covers Morillon and Samoens, both of which have some excellent terrain. The Blue Cascade run is a great trial for testing those skiing legs, as it winds down into the valley for 14km. Advanced skiers will find some interesting skiing on piste, but the resort is also a great place to make your first turns off-piste – why not take out a guide and discover some untracked powder?
