What a start to the season for the Grand Massif, 4th largest ski area in France! Although Morillon & Sixt open their slopes on the 22nd December, it is already time for those firt descents in Les Carroz, Samoens and Flaine. It is in effect from this Saturday 15th December that these 3 resorts of the Northern Alps are ready for the first skiers of the 2018-2019 season.

An exceptional year for Flaine, celebrating its 50th birthday. This architectural nugget is as youthful as ever ! Its accessibility, its concept ski to the door, its car free centre are all aspects that still attract today. These past years has had a rebirth reaffirming its reputation as a quirky urban alternative resort.

To mark the occasion, The tourist office is proposing an exhibition showcasing this pioneering resort. The occassion to dive into Flaine’s history since its creation, via photos, press articles, post cards….A celebration which also is shown on the ski slopes with a torchlit descent from the ESF ski school « Special 50th Birthday ». Sure to amaze!
