Grand Massif ski area
265 km of skiing and 5 linked stations (Flaine, Les Carroz, Morillon, Samoëns, Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval). It has long been the training ground for Antoine Dénériaz, Olympic downhill ski champion at the 2006 Olympics.
The Grand Massif benefits from its geographical location, abundant and regular snow cover throughout the season, and the area is renowned for the quality of its spring snow. It must be said that 80% of the slopes are exposed to the north which allows better conservation of the snow.
The Grand Massif has exceptional places:
- The Combe de Gers with its 800 m drop in virgin snow. The slope is dizzying!
- The waterfall trail which deploys a 14 km blue carpet from the summit of Flaine to Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval)
- The Marvel trail which offers beginners a route through a 5 km old forest
