Flaine Ski Resort
Flaine is a firm Ski Club favourite and there’s plenty of reasons why. The snow quality is consistently excellent, the ski-in-ski-out resort is as convenient as it gets and then there’s the 265km of varied slopes in the Grand Massif ski area.
The north-facing bowl above Flaine has a reputation for maintaining great snow conditions, whether this is on the gentle blues above the resort or on the plentiful off piste that gives this resort so much variety. Add in the network of mostly tree-lined slopes dropping down towards Samoëns, Les Carroz and Morillon and the 265km of linked pistes will keep all but the most expert of skiers happy.
The purpose-built resort was designed with a striking Bauhaus style in mind and although it may appear quite stark, it is incredibly convenient and most of the accommodation is ski-in-ski-out. The car free streets are very family-friendly and when you add in a quick, hour-long transfer from Geneva, this is one of the most accessible resorts in France.
It is therefore no surprise that Flaine has long been a key part of Ski Club Freshtracks and once again this winter we’re offering 17 weeks of holidays at the two Chalet Freshtracks – ranging from Advanced Powder Skills holidays to Learn to Ski Powder trips.
In addition, our popular Instructor-led Guiding Service, led by the fantastic Phillipe Clerc returns to the resort again this season – sessions can be booked between 22nd December and 13th April this season.

What's New for 2019/20?
Flaine is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019/20. Over the past 50 years Flaine has built an excellent lift system and it is therefore of little surprise that there are no significant lift upgrades for this winter.
Despite already having a reputation for maintaining excellent snow conditions throughout the season, electrical work has been carried out to facilitate the expansion of snow making facilities on the Tourmaline piste. This includes the installation of new snow cannons, with a new water pump and air compressor to serve them.
