The Grand Massif region
Flaine lies in the northern part of the French Alps, in the Haute-Savoie region, between Geneva and Chamonix Mont Blanc. It is close to major airports (Geneva, Annecy, Lyon), train stations (Cluses, Annecy, Annemasse) and the A 40 motorway (Cluses).
Flaine is the highest resort in the Grand Massif ski area and designed around the bowl it sits in. This bowl allows for a huge amount of accessible off piste, some challenging runs, a range of intermediate runs and a lovely beginner area. It is surrounded to the North by Les Portes du Soleil, to the East by the Aravis, and to the south by the Mont Blanc region with all of these ski resorts an easy 1 hr day trip away.
The Grand Massif ski area includes Samoens, Les Carroz, Morillon and Sixt as well as Flaine and has over 265km of piste.
Flaine's proximity to Mont Blanc results in an excellent snow record, and it is one of the most snow sure resorts in Europe.. Flaine is particularly family friendly with excellent multi-lingual ski-schools, and safe skiing for young children. There are more challenging runs and plenty of accessible off piste for intermediate and advanced level skiers and snowboarders.
