Flaine

A ski tour to France

Flaine is a fantastic resort set in the heart of the beautiful Grand Massif ski area and only 90km from Geneva. The skiing in Flaine offers a wide variety of grades with 140km of piste in the Flaine area alone and a total of 265km if you take the whole Grand Massif into account. Flaine has an excellent reputation for early snow cover with North West facing slopes largely above 2000m and an above average annual snowfall. The main bowl at Flaine is particularly good at retaining snow and often stays in good condition long after the last snowfall. There is a great selection of pistes including a dedicated beginner area and a huge number of blue and red runs for intermediates. 

RESORT-

For expert skiers the bowl off the back of the Tete Pelouse could easily keep you entertained for the whole week but there is so much more to explore. The main village of Flaine is split into three levels, each with their own cafes shops and bars. Flaine is a car free resort and getting around is easy with the in-town funiculars. 

The arrangements for the tour were tailored to our specific requirements without fuss and the customer service was, as always excellent

The centre was recently taken over from a large upmarket hotel chain and the building is modern and comfortable. UCPA Flaine is very well located in the heart of the town centre and a stones throw from the slopes. All the usual UCPA services are on offer including a restaurant, evening entertainment area, bar, ski room and sun terrace. The bar is particularly nice with a large central fireplace and seating all round. Ski in/out when good snow cover.
