The village is situated between the forests on the hillside of a natural snow valley. The slopes and the environment are amazingly beautiful. You are able to enjoy rougher rocks, alternated with more green than in, for example, Les Trois Vallées. Flaine is part of Le Grand Massif and the location in the bowl behind the gigantic Mont Blanc Massif means guaranteed snow. The northern hillsides are so ideal; it was almost MANDATORY to establish a ski resort here. Flaine is part of Le Grand Massif, the 4th interconnected ski area in France with 265 km of ski slopes. The possibilities are nearly endless and the places Samoëns, Les Carroz, Morillon and Six Fer a Cheval are more than worth a tour by ski. The slopes are diversified and the view of the Mont Blanc is impressive. Worth mentioning is the Cascade-slope with a length of 14k m which starts at the top of the Grandes Platières (2,500 m). From there, it gradually goes down to 1,700 m. The longest blue slope in Europe!
The ‘télécabine de Vallorcine’ literally departures from the doorstep of the resort and provides direct access to Domaine de Balme, part of the ‘domaine skiable de la vallée de Chamonix’. A non-stop descent of many kilometres connects the ‘Tête de Balme’ with the village Vallorcine along beautiful rough slopes through forests, natural meadows and exciting paths. Discover the exceptional panoramic views of the Mont Blanc Massif, the Swiss Alps and the spectacular Emosson-dam.
Ski domain Chamonix-Mont Blanc is divided in 3 areas: Les Grands Montets (Argentière), Brévent/Flégère (Chamonix/Les Praz) and Domaine de Balme (Vallorcine). With a total of 115 kilometres of slopes, an extremely varied offer is provided, for the earliest beginner to the absolute ‘dare-devil’.
Guests of our resort enjoy the free use of the train. Ideal to discover one of the other areas during a morning, afternoon or day using the same ski pass. But also for hikers, cross-country skiers or shoppers this is a great solution: in no more than half an hour you can reach the beautiful natural reserves or the centre of the very sophisticated town of Chamonix!
