The snow in Flaine stays on the ground for longer, and remains in good condition thanks to its ideal orientation and location in a wide snow-bowl. The unrivalled, panoramic views from the highest point in resort provide spectacular views of the mighty Mont Blanc. The innovative architecture of Flaine was designed to blend in with nature and created with skiers in mind. The traffic free centre is easy to navigate in your ski boots, and much of the accommodation is ski-in/ski-out.
Skiing in Flaine
Beginners skiing and snowboarding
Flaine’s reassuring location in a snow-bowl and excellent snow record means beginner skiers and boarders needn’t be concerned about icy conditions underfoot. The ski school in Flaine has an excellent reputation for both adult and child tuition making it ideal for families. And there are several wide, easy runs and nursery slopes located around the Flaine Foret area, ideal for finding your ski legs.
Intermediates skiing and snowboarding
The Flaine snow-bowl has an incredible network of red runs, ideal for intermediate skiers and the extensive groomed runs and lift system of the Grand Massif are perfect for spending a day touring the mountainside. An excellent start to the week is surely taking the Serpentine all the way from the top of Les Grandes Palatieres, at 2480m high, all the way back to Flaine village. This enjoyable, long blue run affords stunning views of the Grand Massif as you skirt around the edge of the bowl. For a more challenging alternative tackle the red Mephisto run, which heads the opposite way around the bowl.
Also offering up spectacular views is the famous Piste des Cascades, which at 14km long, is sure to test your stamina. This challenging run also starts at the top of Les Grandes Palatieres and it ends in the delightful village of Sixt. From here you will have to take a shuttle bus to get back to the main ski area, but it is certainly worth taking a day of your ski holiday to visit.
Advanced skiing and snowboarding
The steep Diamond Noir plunges you off the top of Les Grandes Palatieres and down one of the most challenging runs in the resort. The Agate is another fun black which can be pretty steep in parts and accessed from the same part of the mountain.
The Styx, located in the Gers snow-bowl, is one of our favourite black runs in resort and a consistent challenge to even expert skiers and boarders. Perhaps even more of a challenge is the long, steep drag-lift (snowboarders beware!), which more than makes up for the relative absence of drag lifts across the rest of resort. Powder lovers head to the Gers bowl for the best off-piste skiing on the mountain. A local guide will help you to find the freshest powder and safest places to ski and board.
Freestyle and terrain parks
There’s no snow park in the Grand Massif but freestyle skiers and boarders are still catered for with a series of ‘Fun Zones’ dotted around the mountain.
