The Grand Massif is France's sixth biggest ski area, containing the ski resorts of Flaine, Les Carroz, Morillon, Samoens and Sixt-Fer-a-Cheval.
It is located just under 1 hour's drive from Geneva Airport, making it one of France's most accessible ski areas. It's famous for its high snowfall levels and some charming villages. Due to some fortunate combination of geography and its location being very close to Mont Blanc, it regularly out-snows all the surrounding resorts.
Do note the "some" part of the charming villages, most of the lower villages are lovely original Savoyard villages that ooze character. The highest resort in the Grand Massif is Flaine, a purpose-built ski resort which, in keeping with most purpose-built French ski resorts, is wonderfully practical but not particularly pretty to the eye!
The Grand Massif area has not built itself such a famous name as some of the most popular French ski areas such as the Three Valleys, Espace Killey or Chamonix. For any enthusiastic skier though it should be put in the same exalted company as an area to go on everyone's to ski list.
Firstly don't be put off by the low altitude of some of the villages. Generally you will expect to take the lift up, do your skiing, then take a lift back down at the end of the day. There is plenty of skiing at the snow sure higher altitudes.
There are 3 options for lift passes.
There is a wonderful range of skiing within the Grand Massif area, there really is something for everyone. The area contains plenty of gentle exploring runs for beginners and low intermediates, you can tour village to village to explore different resorts, and is plenty of more challenging skiing including great off piste opportunities too.
Indeed the high snowfall levels combined with the good of offpiste to reign does attract hunters to this ski area.
The lift infrastructure is very good, as you would expect from anymodern main French resort. There's plenty of high-speed lifts, and the pistes interconnect well for a multi-resort area. The only bit that and on its own is Sixt, that has its own mini ski area that is not connected to the rest.
Here you can find the catered accommodation that best suits you in the Grand Massif.
