Samoëns

Like many French ski villages, Samoëns consists of two areas. The first is the authentic, traditional village that has many old buildings and chalets. The second is Samoëns 1600, which is located at a higher altitude and has more modern hotels and apartments. Samoëns 1600 also has better access to the ski lifts. The authentic village is the only ski holiday destination that has the official status of "Monument Historique".

Skiing in Samoëns

Samoëns 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 Flaine, 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

Samoëns has a fantastic assortment of bars and restaurant. For cross country skiers there is approximately 50km of different tracks available. For non skiers there are plenty of different activities available. This includes a weekly market, dog sledding, snow shoe walks, ice skating, a public spa area and a cinema.

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

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”.

Le Grand Massif

  • One of the larger ski areas in Europe
  • Snow guarantee in the French Alps
  • Almost all villages are connected by lift
