Les Carroz Ski Resort
Les Carroz set at 1150m is a brilliant gateway into the Grand Massif ski region with 265kms of slopes, ranging from breezy wide open ones to technical and challenging ones. The area is exhilarating with spectacular scenery over the Mont Blanc region.
The village has a good choice of shops and restaurants, a heated outdoor pool (new for 2012), an 18 hole golf course and slightly further afield the Giffre gorge and river host to white water rafting, canyoning, kayaking and rock climbing. Also on the doorstep for the warmer months, there is also hangliding, parapenting, mountain biking down mountain trails and if you’re looking for a little lower key, there is the nearby lake and pool for bathing and swimming.
Other highlights include the ever-changing waterfall of Rouget, the Botanical Gardens in Samoens and the stunning Sixt Fer a Cheval National Park. Les Carroz is on the rise with projects in the pipeline and won’t be too long before this Savoyarde village becomes an unguarded secret.
Le Grand Massif Ski Area
The Grand Massif ski region incorporates the ski resorts of Morillon, Samoeons, Flaine, Clusaz, Sixt and Les Carroz.
The Samoëns ski area offers a varied playground accessible to all. For expert skiers there are black and red pistes at the top of the resort and a vast off-piste area to indulge your enthusiasm. Beginners will improve on the lower, more gentle blue and green slopes which were entirely re-designed in 2003. Small children are welcomed at the children's ski area (jardin d´enfants) at the top of the Grand Massif Express cable car.
At 2 500 m, the summit of the Grandes Platières... A breathtakingly beautiful landscape. Mont Blanc seems to be just a couple of steps away, so impressive is its presence. The Désert de Platé, a vast snowy territory with a unique geological curiosity; a genuine stone glacier over 40 million years old!
Flaine offers wide open spaces with 140 km of pistes of all levels, marked and made safe. Just a few oases where you can eat and drink punctuate the landscape which is otherwise an untouched natural space.
Morillon is the perfect place to enjoy relaxed snowsports with the whole family, in welcoming and authentic natural surroundings. Among the 72 pistes of the Grand Massif, Marvel, the beautiful green run is a must for those who wish to combine the pleasure of skiing with the discovery of local fauna, as explained on the information boards along the edge of the piste. It even has a local hero… Did you know that Morillon is the home of Antoine Dénériaz, the 2006 Olympic downhill champion ?
