Flaine Ski Holidays - Excellent Snow Record
The cheap ski holiday resort of Flaine is located in the Grand Masif ski area. There are 265 km of piste linking the resorts of Flaine itself with lesCarroz and Morillon. Samoens also links but the lift base is a few miles from the village. Although in Flaine, ski lifts do not go as high as some other ski areas, the snow record in this area is helped greatly by the north facing slopes and the resorts close proximity to Mont Blanc. A large part of the skiing is therefore below the tree line on exciting routes through the trees and giving great opportunities for some great off-piste tree skiing on your last minute ski holiday in France.
