Ski 20 - 16/02/2020
Overall

First stay in Flaine. Great skiing over long pistes. Busier than expected for early February and food pricey. Accommodation was comfortable but our twin room was too small.

Flaine Feb 2020 - 12/02/2020
Overall

We stayed at residences d'eos self catering in flaine which was fantastic. Appartment was clean, fully equipped kitchen, outdoor pool with superb views of the mountains. Free buses to the centre but could walk easily in ten minutes. Ski in/out as long as you can ski blue runs. Covered most of the runs in flaine in first two days, but if you get a grand massif lift pass you can travel further. Night life limited but good selection of restaurants and of course the white pub! La pente a Jules provided good value for money at lunchtime. We were lucky to have a big snowfall before we arrived and three days of sun. Igloo ski provided an excellent service.

Annoying shortcomings - 08/01/2012
Overall

This resort should be excellent, with a good snow record, lots of runs with many through the trees and great convenience with most accommodation virtually on the piste. However, too many of the easier blue runs, and some greens, are served by old, fierce button pulls not suitable for beginners or those lacking confidence. To exacerbate this, the Aup de Veran gondola has been withdrawn, despite still being shown on piste maps, meaning that a good amount of blue runs through woods are only accessible by button pulls marked difficult and for expert skiers only. The DMC gondola to the top seems very susceptible to strong winds and when we were there there were some days when the only way up the mountain was via the Tetes des Verdes charilift, resulting in long queues. The links with Samoens and Les Carroz add an extra dimension but are often very busy and close quickly in bad weather. Overall, an excellent ski area but frustrating to try to make the most of. IMHO, the lift system has not seen sufficient investment and is now slightly worse than when I first visited 20 years ago.

Have skied here a number of times with friends (blacks/off piste) and family (reds/blues). Top variety of skiing for everyone. Village is great with a massive range of pubs and restaurants which are good value and don't dent the credit card. I can’t wait to get back. Everyone is so friendly.

Great for families - 15/12/2006
Overall

Flaine is one of the very best resorts for children & families. The uplift direct by telepherique; no walking; children's and beginners area in the sun. No dangerous long paths. Easy to meet up & return to hotel at lunchtime. It should be rated as ***** for beginners. The area Gers is one of the very best areas for powder. Flaine, lying as it does in a bowl is relatively sheltered from the wind. The superb design of the runs laid out by world champion racer Emile Allais take in to account runs for beginners in the sun; an icy cold area for slalomn racers only, an area for GS slalomn; different runs into the village centre so that beginners are not forced to share these runs with racing youngsters.
