The Grand Massif ski area is one of the largest, most developed ski areas in France and across Europe. Made up of the 5 resorts of Flaine, Les Carroz, Morillon, Samoëns and Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval, holders of the Grand Massif ski pass get up to 265 kilometres of snow pistes to explore across 148 slopes. It is also one of the best-interconnected ski areas in the French Alps, serviced by 70 modern ski lifts across the ski area. The slopes here peak at 2,500 metres altitude with the majority of the slopes above 1,500 metres. With fantastic skiing conditions and snow reliability, getting your Grand Massif ski pass truly provides you with several fantastic skiing experiences suitable for ski ability types. Perfect for families and large groups, most of the resorts in the Grand Massif ski area are purpose-built with a fantastic layout between accommodations, lifts and resort centre amenities. If you are visiting the Grand Massif region for at least 6 days, we would strongly recommend that you purchase a ski area lift pass rather than a local ski pass for your resort area.

Types of Grand Massif Ski Passes

In Grand Massif, you'll find the following ski pass types available:
Grand Massif Ski Pass
The Grand Massif ski pass grants access to all areas within the Grand Massif ski area. It is available for adults between 15 - 74 years old and children between 8 - 14 years old. Children under 8 and seniors over 75 ski for free (ID is required).
Additional discounts may be available for early-bird bookings, beginners, pedestrians, season ski passes and weekend-only passes ( Saturday Skiers).
Where Can I Buy A Grand Massif Lift Pass?
You can get your Grand Massif ski pass from any of the 5 resorts within the area. As is standard practice, ski passes can be purchased from the lift machines at the resorts or at the resort ticket offices.

However, if you are planning to visit the Grand Massif this season as part of our holiday offerings, we would recommend that you purchase your area ski pass directly from us online rather than wait until you get to the resort. Buying your passes online does not cost any more than it would at the lift machines however, it will save you a lot more time and effort as you can avoid the queues during peak times and simply head straight for the slopes whenever you feel like. Ordering your ski pass from us online is also the easiest way of obtaining it as the process is super simple and only includes a few clicks of the mouse.

Can I Pre-Book My Grand Massif Ski Pass?
Yes. You can pre-book your Grand Massif ski pass many days, weeks and months prior to your arrival at the resort. This is actually the best way to obtain and secure your Grand Massif ski area pass. Once ordered online, your ski pass is prepared and sent to you days in advance; even before your bags and ski’s have been packed.
Pre-booking your ski pass ( and all the other services available) as part of your customised, all-inclusive ski holiday package offers plenty of advantages as it takes care of the majority of your additional services, freeing up your in-resort to-do list and itinerary; allowing you a lot of time to yourself and family while at the resort.
How Ski Passes Work in Grand Massif?
Your Grand Massif ski pass works and functions almost like most other ski passes. When the payment is made, you will be presented with a plastic, smart card with a digital function that operates like most regular and standard cards do.

Access to the area is electronically credited onto the card which can then be used to gain access to the barriers and gates at the lifts via swipe or scan action. Please make sure that while on the slopes, you have your ski pass with you at all times as you will not be able to access any of the lifts without it. You can keep your ski pass in your front jacket pocket or on your jacket’s sleeve pockets for remote activation; as some of the scanners may be able to read the card without having to hold it to the scanner directly.

What About Pedestrian Ski Passes in Grand Massif?
Pedestrian tickets are available in the Grand Massif ski area. They are generally used by a wide range of holidaymakers including hikers and snowshoers. They can also be used by nature enthusiasts, wildlife and landscape photographers who wish to take a closer look at the stunning mountain range.
There are also non-skiers who may wish to access some of the restaurants and panoramic views high up on the slopes and would need to take the gondolas up there. Whatever your reason for using the pedestrian lift or gaining a pedestrian pass, you will have access to one or either at all the resorts within the Grand Massif ski area. In Flaine, use the DMC cable car for pedestrian access; La Kédeuze gondola grants pedestrian access Les Carroz; access the GME or Saix gondola in Samoëns for pedestrian access and the Morillon gondola for pedestrian access in Morillon. Please be advised these are the current access areas for pedestrians in the Grand Massif but may very well be subject to change at any point.
