Flaine, Skiing & Snowboar...

Flaine is the central hub within Le Grand Massif, reputed to be France’s fourth largest ski and snowboard area with over 265 kilometers of marked pistes. The riding is extensive both on and off-piste and there is terrain suited to skiers and snowboarders of all levels.

Flaine is a popular destination for families as kids can be booked into ski school from as young as three years old. The wide gentle nursery slopes are located beside the village which makes the journey to school in the morning relatively effortless. From many accommodations it is simply a case of clicking in and sliding to wherever you want to go.
