Introducing Le Grand Massif, the fourth largest ski area in France and within sight of majestic Mont Blanc. So what makes this area such a great ski destination? Perhaps it is the 255km of pistes across a range of levels, 40,000 ski hectares and five skiing stations. With the five resorts of Flaine, Les Carroz d'Araches, Samoens, Morillion and Sixt Fer-a-Cheval, are you up for the challenge?
As you would expect from such an extensive area, Le Grand Massif has slopes to suit all abilities. Flaine sits at the heart of the area and has a modern appearance with first-class functionality. Bauhaus designer Marcel Breuer was responsible for much of the architecture in the area and so it has a certain futuristic ap-peal. If you prefer your ski resorts with a little more traditional flair then the villages of Les Carroz d'Araches, Samoens and Morillion are full of wood panelled houses, ideal for that authentic mountain atmosphere.
