Flaine

In the heart of the ski area Le Grand Massif is the resort Flaine. It is situated at an altitude of 1600m, and is designed by the famous urban architect Breuer. The resort consists of mainly white buildings in order for them to blend into the naturally white surroundings.

Skiing in Flaine

Flaine is part of the extensive Les Grand Massif ski area. Overall this area has over 265km of ski slopes. It also includes the famous French resorts of Samoëns, Morillon and Les Carroz d’Araches. It is a perfect area for beginner to intermediate skiers/snowboarders. The highest point of Les Grand Massif is approximately 2500m, making it a fairly snow sure destination through the whole of the winter season.

The Resort

Flaine is an entirely car free village consisting of three different neighbourhoods: Flaine Forêt, Flaine Forum and Flaine Front de Neige. These neighbourhoods are connected to each other by public lifts. Besides skiing there are many other great activities in Flaine. Enjoy a drink at one of the lively après-ski bars including The White Pub, L’Eloge and the West Mountain. For non skiers there are also plenty of options such as snow showing, ice skating, snowmobiling, paragliding, dog sledding, rock climbing and bowling.

Sunweb has a great range of different ski packages available in Flaine. From all inclusive luxurious hotels to simple cheap apartments. There are packages to suit all groups.

Map

Le Grand Massif

The ski area of Le Grand Massif, with approximately 265km of pistes, is regarded as one of the best ski resorts in France. The area has an altitude of 900m to 2500m. The ski area Le Grand Massif is known as a snow-sure resort. If there is snow falling in the French Alpes, it likely to be snowing in Flaine! Every year we get many messages from guests who have chosen to return to Le Grand Massif, a strong sign that once visited you will want to keep going back!

 

The pistes of Grand Massif are well-connected, consisting of Flaine, Samoens, Morillon and Les Carroz. The combination of these areas, make it the fourth biggest ski area in France. This fantastic area offers plenty of options for skiers and snowboarders of every level. Novices and intermediate skiers can head to one of the many wide pistes that are also ideal for snowboarders.

 

Snowboarders in Le Grand Massif can also test their skills in one of Europe’s biggest snow parks that include a half pipe, boarder cross and various jumps. Highly experienced will be happy to know that there is a challenge in Grand Massif: Gers descent!

There are also plenty of off-piste route or you can head off on one of the longer ski trails. We recommend the Cascade, a fantastic descent lasting 14 km.

 

There are rarely waiting times or queues in Flaine but you can expect the resort to be relatively full during French school holidays. On location you can opt for a hands free lift pass. This lift pass costs approximately € 3,- extra. All Sunweb packages include a lift pass for the full ski area (Grand Massif).

 

In the villages of Les Carroz and Samoëns you will find an extensive cross country skiing area. There is a total of 47 km of cross country tracks in the area. Samoëns is also the only ski resort with the official title of "Monument Historique”.

Lift pass, lessons and ski/board hire

A Le Grand Massif ski pass is included in the holiday price.

You can see the surcharges and discounts for extending your ski pass or no ski pass in step 1 (preferences) of the booking process. If a child or senior discount applies, this will be shown in step 2 (price overview). Would you like to know which ski pass is included in your travel time? View our FAQ here .

Please note:
 from the 10 - 16 December, only the Flaine ski area is open, not the entire Le Grand Massif area.

Ski passes for children up to 7 years old are free. These discounts can be found in the calculation of your travel sum. Identification is required when collecting the ski pass.

Any surcharges and discounts are only valid upon booking. Other rates are applied locally. It is not possible to redeem the ski pass on another day onsite. An extension of the ski pass can often be booked as an extra; you will find the price for this further into the booking steps. The discount for “no ski pass” can also be found in the booking process.

You can specify ski and snowboard rental directly when booking. Check out our FAQ  for more information about equipment rental.
