Downhill skiing Le Grand Massif Samoëns

About

Samoëns (74340)
Animals not allowed
139 ski slope(s)

Thanks to its geographical location, the Grand Massif enjoys abundant, regular snowfalls throughout the season, and the area is well known for the quality of the snow in spring. 80% of the slopes are north-facing, allowing the snow to lie for longer and remain in good condition.

The Grand Massif features some exceptional spots:
- The Combe de Gers with its dizzying 800 m drop and untouched snow!
- The blue Cascades piste running for 14 km from the summit at Flaine to Sixt Fer à Cheval
- The Marvel piste that provides beginners with a 5 km run through the heart of a forest over a century old

The Grand Massif, freestyle version
There are three jamparks for the greater joy of beginners or experienced freestylers alike.
