Le Grand Massif
About Le Grand Massif
The Grand Massif is a great favourite with British skiers and gives the opportunity to try the more traditional resorts of Samoens, Sixt, Morillon and Les Carroz. For a supplement groups can add an extension to the purpose-built area of Flaine.
Its proximity to Mont Blanc ensures an excellent micro climate and snow record across its 265kms of prepared pistes.
There is a range of skiing in the Flaine bowl itself, but the key to its popularity is the link with the rest of the Grand Massif area.
