It seems a bit of bad weather quickly closes lifts and it's difficult to get back to Foret if you get stuck below and even the "yoghurt pots" that take you up to the next level are closed. The only option is the funicular or...More
We have visited Flaine for the last 7 years, we love the whole ski area.
This year we needed help on the slopes after one of our sons had an accident and can't believe how helpful the whole grand massif team are. They fetched him...More
Good mix of red and blue pistes. Can ski on wide pistes in Flaine or on forested areas in the adjacent small resorts. Good lifts with few queues. Varied selection of places to eat. Little might life. Lots of English families may put some off!

7 of us spent a week here. Snow was great. Lift system was superb. No queueing. You need the Gran Massif pass if you are here for a week, there is access to an incredible variety of runs. The restaurants all and without exception serve...More

Hi, you'd have to get a bus from Samoens to Flaine Forum to ride the DMC (cable car) to the top of the Grandes Platieres, as far as I know, this is the only way as a pedestrian, there is a restaurant at the top, which I've heard is very good. Hope this helps.
