Flaine is famous for its excellent off piste terrain that suits skiers of all abilities. Spend a week with your off piste instructors who will show you the best that Flaine has to offer. The team have been skiing here off piste every day each winter for years and know exactly where to find the best snow at any time. This week is for Intermediate and Advanced off piste skiers so you will already know what you are doing and be ready to get some great turns in but there's always much to learn and your technique will be examined, tweaked and perfected. So for any questions you have about your stance, balance and general skill set the team are there to answer. This is a very rewarding and exciting trip that will see you shooting through tree runs, bowling through couloirs and flying down open powder fields.
At the heart of the Grand Massif, Flaine has fantastic, vast and varied terrain for skiers of all levels. As a resort built because of its majestic mountains and generous dumps of snow, Flaine benefits from one of the best snowfalls across the Alps, with an average of almost six metres a year. With its runs being predominantly north-facing, the resort is renowned for maintaining fantastic snow throughout the season.
The resort itself is functional rather than attractive but offers decent shops and services and a couple of bars. The chalets are based up in the colourful Scandinavian-style development, Les Chalets du Hameau, a few minutes drive from the main resort. In the Hameau itself there is a bar/restaurant L'Ancolie which also has a small shop with some local products. There is a free transport to and from the main resort until midnight and in good conditions you can also ski down to the meeting point in the mornings.
