Flaine Guide

Flaine is situated in the Haute-Savoie region of France, about 1.5 hours from Geneva airport. It sits in the heart of one of the largest French skiing territories “Le Grand Massif”, which covers a huge variety of terrain for all levels of skier and offers a massive 265km of piste area.

This compact purpose built ski resort is split into 3 levels known as Flaine Foret, Flaine Forum and Flaine Front de Neige – all of which are all linked together by lifts and are easily accessible on foot. The resort proves to be a popular choice with families due to the car free, “pedestrian only” streets of the main Flaine Forum and excellent entertainment facilities all around. In addition, most of the accommodation is conveniently located such that you can “ski in / ski out” from the resort, right from your apartment door. In most cases, ski lifts are never more than a couple of minutes away.

Skiing In Flaine

There are two main appealing factors for skiing in Flaine. Firstly, it has an excellent record for snowfall, which on average, amounts to a massive 6 metres a year. In addition, its position within the heart of Le Grand Massif means that you have instant access to this vast skiing territory, with its lift system sitting right on your doorstep. No matter if you are a learner, an intermediate, or a true professional, this varied skiing terrain caters for everyone.

Beginners

Flaine has a number of wide and gentle nursery slopes dotted around the resort centre – all of which are perfect for beginners to learn on. As confidence grows, novice skiers can progress higher up the mountain on some of the longer blue runs, which meander their way down back into the resort.

Intermediates

More advanced skiers will want to venture further afield and get the most of the Grand Massif skiing terrain. Here they will find everything from long tree-lined slopes to amble down, through to steep and testing mogul fields. In total, there are 75 easy runs to practice on in this area, with a further 47 classified at intermediate level.

Advanced

Expert skiers will also find a lot of ski entertainment on the Grand Massif domain, with a total of 15 black runs to choose from. For a more relaxed run, it is possible to ski from the top of Flaine at 2480m, right down to the neighbouring village of Sixt at 800m. This picturesque route is a grand 14 km long and is locally known as the Cascades piste. Whilst classified as a blue run, this piste runs high across the mountain, right down through the forests, with a stop off at the Cascade Waterfalls before finishing in Sixt. On a sunny day, this is a special day out with stunning scenery across the Ger Valley.

Snowboarders

Flaine is home to one of the biggest board parks in Europe, known as the Jam Park. Operated by specialist staff who prepare the area daily, it offers boarders of varying abilities the chance to test out their skills on tables, rails, quarters and much, much more. Boarders will find the Jampark on the Calc�doine run on the Aujon ski area of Flaine.

Nightlife In Flaine

With Flaine being a predominantly family focused resort, nightlife here is very relaxed. However, there are three main bars in the area – The Flying Dutchman and the Diamant Noir (both located in Flaine For�t) and le White Pub (in Flaine Forum). The Flying Dutchman has great music inside the bar with heaters outside for those who prefer to enjoy a quieter drink in the open air. Just up the road is the Diamant Noir, which often has live bands playing and has a real Irish feel to it – a real must for any Guinness fans. Le White Pub is another popular choice, which serves a great range of British beers.

Eating Out In Flaine

Flaine offers everyone a good choice of restaurants and bars – all of which serve reasonably priced food and regional cuisine. La Perdrix Noire in Flaine Foret, is a traditional alpine setting serving meats and fresh seafood from the rottisserie and grill, as well as a seasonal and a la carte menu. Chez Daniel is another popular choice which offers qood quality regional fondues, hot rocks and crepes.

Other Things To Try In The Area

There are plenty of opportunities to take a break from the skiing in Flaine with a cinema, indoor climbing wall, ice-skating rink and indoor swimming-pool & fitness centre all close by. Also available are fun filled dog sledding rides and snow shoeing. The more adventurous may want to try para-gliding, snow-kiting, a helicopter tour, or renting out a snowmobile – all of which can be arranged locally.
