SKI HOLIDAYS IN LE GRAND MASSIF
The Grand Massif, is one of the huge interlinked ski areas in the Northern French Alps. Encompassing the resorts of Flaine, Les Carroz, Samoëns, Morillon and Sixt, the area resorts are diverse, from the purpose built resort of Flaine that excels for ski-in ski-out convenience, to the more traditional villages of Les Carroz, Samoëns, Morillon and Sixt that offer quick and efficient access to an immense ski area at a fraction of the cost of some of the more well-known resorts.
The scenery is simply stunning, with fabulous panoramas of Mont Blanc. The top of the ski area peaks at 2500 metres at the Tête des Lindarts and the natural bowl of Flaine means that the area enjoys exceptional snow cover however the area has invested heavily in snow cannons for when nature could do with a helping hand. When the weather is inclement, it is best to head through the trees to Morillon and Les Carroz.
The other benefit of the Grand Massif ski area is that it has some of the shortest transfer times from Geneva airport making it ideal for short break ski holidays, and it is also one of the best destinations for self-drive ski holidays in France.
