Tips from Taylor on Flaine

What a great time we had in Flaine! Tons of snow, fantastic live music at night, practical resort (supermarket, shops, restaurants, bars, hotels, appartements, and so on..) all at walking distance. The architecture is not what you would expect from cozy and traditional ski resort. The buildings are from the Bauhaus period, so big blocks of concrete are what you'll see. However, the practicality of the resort combined with the amazing skiing opportunities and après ski activities are worth your visit at Flaine for your next ski holidays!

Not the most charming ski resort - but great skiing!

I was reluctant to spend a week in Flaine because of the architecture of the resort, as I personally prefer charming ski resorts with tons of pretty ski chalets. But my husband convinced me and I do not regret being convinced: the skiing is simply wo...

Huge ski area with speedy lifts

Stayed in Flaine Forum and happy we did as this where the evening activity happens. There are some pretty ugly buildings here but the centre is at least pedestrianised so it's nice and quiet.

Good for powder skiing but not an attractive resort and expensive

Unattractive village. All pistes arrive back in the resort through the beginners slopes which can be dangerous as skiers are going full tilt to keep their speed up so they don't have to walk up into the village.
