Overview of Les Carroz

Les Carroz enjoys a serene location in the Grand Massif ski area and is a popular resort with French families (meaning it’s good!), and is a real up and coming resort for British skiers looking for a fun, friendly, family resort with lots of variety. Skiing in the Grand Massif includes not only Les Carroz itself, but also the neighbouring resorts of Flaine, Samoens, Morillon and Sixt, giving access to 265 km of pistes.

The village of Les Carroz sits at 1200m and features traditional Savoie style timber buildings surrounded by glorious mountainscapes and pine-tree-lined ski slopes. Its one of the closer ski resorts to Geneva airport so the transfers are swift - around an hour and a half door-to-door.

Skiing and Snowboarding in Les Carroz

Les Carroz is great for beginners, with the nursery slopes being secluded and quiet. There are also plenty of gentle blue runs close to resort base area, allowing for progress at a comfortable rate and easy access to ski lifts. Intermediate level skiers can enjoy superb access to the whole of the Grand Massif, and will particularly enjoy the runs back down into Les Carroz itself.

The advanced skiing around Flaine and Samoens is well-renowned as world-class. There are a good number of challenging black runs, and Flaine – famous for its powder bowls - has often relatively quiet top-quality off-piste, compared to other well-known ski areas.

Snowboarders can make use of the two boardercross courses and Oasis Cool Zone snowpark in Les Carroz, which is suitable for a variety of ability levels, and an additional 2 snowparks further afield in the Grand Massif.

Lift Passes in Les Carroz

Les Carroz-only lift passes are only available on a day-rate and even the most novice skier will want to explore beyond the village’s own slopes. The next option is a “4 Villages” pass which includes access to Samoens, Sixt and Morillon as well as Les Carroz.

For anyone intermediate or above, it’s well worth stepping up to the Full Area, Grad Massif lift pass, giving you access to Flaine as well as the other 4 villages. The other great advantage of the full area pass is that you can buy a family pass for 2 adults and 2 children or 3 adults and 1 child, which will help you make a saving.

Après Ski in Les Carroz

Les Carroz is a much better fit for families than for those looking for serious après-ski, however, there are bars to choose from for an afternoon drink.

  • Le Marlow- Gets the sun on the terrace all afternoon and features a good choice of cocktails and a variety of draught and bottled continental beers.
  • Carpe Diem Pub – A convivial atmosphere with regular live music and all the mainstream sport on TV.

Places to Eat in Les Carroz

  • Les Servages - The most renowned fine dining option in Les Carroz, located at the base of the piste back into the village. Choose from a la carte or try the Chef’s taster menu for a traditional dining experience.
  • Le Marlow – A pub-style menu with lots of choices to suit a whole variety of tastes. Advisable to book in the evening, but also a good option for an early supper straight off the slopes.
  • The Bistrot Grill du Gron – If you’re in need of a big feast, this is the place to head to. BBQ style ribs and grilled meats of all kinds to more than satisfy an appetite!

As well as the fun non-skiing options in the Activities tab, Les Carroz also offers nursery facilities for children from 3 months to 3 years, and then the resort’s own ski ‘kindergarten’ kid’s club for children aged 3 to 5. Kid’s ski school is available for children aged 5 to 12.
