The winter sports village of Flaine is situated just 30 kilometres from the well-known Mont Blanc in France. Flaine is the perfect location for an active ski holiday. Are you an advanced winter sports enthusiast? If so, this challenging ski area is the perfect place for you! Because of the geographical situation in the Prealps, with Mont Blanc as a buffer, you can be sure there will be enough snow. From Dormio Resort Les Portes Du Grand Massif you can take the free ski bus, which stops right beside the resort. It will take you to the ski lift quickly for an active day among snow-covered mountain walls and pine forests. To get back to the resort, you can get onto the ski bus again in the centre of Flaine for a comfortable return journey. The bus will drop you off at your doorstep.
With 265 kilometres of pistes, Le Grand Massif is the fourth largest contiguous ski area in France. The area has an altitude from 900 to as much as 2500 metres and has magnificent panoramic views of the French side of the famous Mont Blanc. The pistes are surrounded by beautiful landscapes and pine forests and offer a wonderful view of Mont Blanc. The best-known ski village in Le Gran Massif is Flaine, but the ski village comprises four other authentic, smaller villages: Les Carroz, Morillon, Samoëns and Sixt. The many ski pistes are well connected and provide a great day out in the snow.
The ski area Le Grand Massif is suitable for families with children, young people and anyone who likes winter sports. Beginning skiers can take skiing lessons and advanced winter sports enthusiasts can make long ski trips along the different villages. Along the way, you can enjoy breathtaking views and charming villages. This is also the perfect place for freestylers: the three largest snow parks in Europe are situated in this ski area! In Flaine you will find the so-called Jampark, Samoëns has the tricks paradise Jampark Cool and Morillon is home to Jampark Kids, which is especially geared up for children. In all parks you will find spectacular jump modules and a boarder cross. Would you like to make a long ski journey? In that case, we would recommend the Cascades run! This ski run is 14 kilometres long, and you won’t see any ski lifts along the way.
There are many things you can do in Flaine other than skiing! For example, you can make a trip on a snow scooter or you can go to an indoor climbing wall. Have you ever gone sledding or would you like to do a walk on Bigfoots? These are also things you can do in Flaine!
