Skiing in Flaine

Practical ski-in/ski-out resort

Situated at the foot of one of the largest linked ski areas in France, the Grand Massif, Flaine is a purpose built resort ideal for designed for convenience and a great choice for a short ski break.  

Big Snowy Bowl

Built at the foot of a big alpine bowl Flaine offers arguably the best skiing the Grand Massif has to offer. The ski area offers a great range of terrain for all standards including a popular terrain park. Flaine also offers good off piste. 

Sensational Views

Reach the lip of Flaine’s bowl at Les Grandes Platières for a spectacular photo op of the various peaks including Aiguille de Midi and Mont Blanc. From here, venture out and ski the rest of the Grand Massif area which overs some wonderful long runs, up to 14km long. 

Good for Beginners

Flaine offers good nursey slopes by the resort and an additional bonus for any beginner is that the green piste is located at the domain top station, meaning beginners can learn to ski surrounded by the inspiring views of both the bowl and Mont Blanc. 

Where to Après Ski

We wouldn’t recommend Flaine for its après scene but a couple of bars do stand out for atmosphere; the flying Dutchman in Forêt is a lively bar with dutch music and good value while the White Pub has a happy hour and live music. 

Where to Eat

There is a slightly limited choice when it comes to eating out in Flaine but the Brasserie Les Cimes in forum is always a good option. It’s a family run restaurant with a good atmosphere and good food. 
The is also the Grain de Sel which offers great value for money, Michet which is across the piste from the main gondola station with a huge fire and a gourmet style menu and lastly cascade which is something different, especially when they pick you up on a snowmobile to take you to the restaurant on the mountain.
