Ski Holidays in Flaine, France

Flaine is an excellent ski holiday destination boosting a remarkable snow record. Located just 1 hour 15 minutes from Geneva, making it a great option for a long weekend, whilst the car-free streets will appeal to families. The reliable snowfall (averages of 6m per year) and 265km of pistes more than make up for the 1960s architecture. The resort itself is split into two different levels, Flaine Forum is the lower level and Flaine Foret the upper, with two lifts linking the levels.

The ski area has lovely views, taking in the Mont Blanc massif at the higher points. Beginners will find the nursery slopes at the foot of the Flaine Foret area as well as a small selection of green runs. Intermediates are well catered for as the majority of the runs in the local area, as well as the wider full area, are blues and reds.
