  • Easy to reach ski resort
  • Pedestrian zone in resort center
  • Ski in ski out options

The ski resort of Flaine was designed by Bauhaus architect Marcel Breuer in the sixties and is the only modern ski resort to be recognised as an architectural treasure. Some of its concrete-block architecture actually includes listed buildings. Flaine is an authentic ski resort with much to offer families and those looking for great skiing conditions.

Despite its rather unwelcoming architecture, the ski resort of Flaine has many advantages: it is surrounded by the 260 km of ski slopes which make up the wonderful Le Grand Massif ski area linking the ski resorts of Morillon, Les Carroz, Samoëns and Sixt Fer à Cheval. Flaine is conveniently located between the Mont Blanc and Lake Geneva and is particularly easy to access. Set in an idylic spot within the Le Grand Massif ski area, you will find one of the largest snowparks in the world! Great opportunities are also on offer for cross-country skiers with a number of trails in the surrounding area. There are five airports within two hours, so ski weekends and short ski holidays in Flaine are perfectly feasible. Geneva Airport is just a one-hour drive away. The resort is traffic free and divided into 3 levels, Flaine Forum, Flaine Foret and Flaine Front de Neige, which are all linked by lifts and accessible on foot. Flaine Forum is the heart of the resort and is where you will find most of the apres-ski with a few bars offering live music and restaurants where you can enjoy traditional fondues and special raclette evenings. Not to be missed on your ski holidays in France.
