Ski holidays to Flaine unlock the Grand Massif ski area, one of France’s largest. Here you can enjoy up to 265km of varied terrain perfect for families, beginners and even intermediates. So when you imagine a Flaine ski holiday, think diving down wide-open bowls or gliding along tree-lined runs with the little ones in tow.
Fans of Flaine’s ski resort love the fact you can virtually fall out of bed and be on the slopes – most accommodation is within walking distance or a short bus ride to the lifts. The north-facing bowl above the town also has a reputation for maintaining its snow cover – and the chance to drop in between the pistes.
