Overview of Samoens

Samoëns is one of France’s most family friendly ski resorts and has excellent access to the 256km of inter-connected slopes that form the Grand Massif ski area.

Samoëns is a picturesque old village that makes for a perfect base from which to explore the Grand Massif and the linked slopes with Les Carroz, Morillon and Flaine. The access gondola is slightly out of town, but it provides access to the heart of the slopes as well as the best beginner zone in the resort. The local slopes are mostly long and tree-lined, so are fantastic in bad weather conditions, but if the sun is shining, be sure to make the most of your Grand Massif pass and head to the high bowl above Flaine or the powder skiing in the Combe de Gers.
