Espace Diamant Ski Area
This newly completed ski area is a hit. It brings together some of the prettiest ski resorts in the Alps, and when you’re floating around on the super light snow found in the area there is one word that sums up the experience of skiing this domain – scenery – it’s really pretty, it’s really stunning.
For much of the skiing you are under the watchful eye of Mont Blanc the highest peak in Western Europe, which provides a sensational backdrop to any activity. The snow record for this area is exemplary and opens from mid Dec to late April in spite of being a relatively low area; they call it the Mont Blanc effect. Snow seems to fall here when surrounding resorts are not being so lucky and many a time I’ve been over to find fresh thigh deep powder when all around are praying for snow.
It is made up of five resorts; Crest Voland Cohennoz, Flumet, Hautluce, Notre-dame de Bellecombe, Praz sur Arly and Les Saisies and most of these resorts have their own satellite villages and resorts such as Bisanne 1500 which, whilst it has its own lifts, is classified as part of Les Saisies.
The Espace Diamant has 185kms of marked piste; 31 green runs, 59 blues, 47 red and 11 black, so something for everyone and in addition 4 bordercross trails and 3 snowparks add to the ensemble. Because of the newness of the area the lift system is good and efficient.
This whole area is extremely good for families; it is not for the full on party animals but there is a pleasant vibe in these resorts. In the summer the place is absolutely stunning; incredible vistas and flower meadows take the breath away and it is a great place for all types of mountain adventures whether of the gourmet, relaxing kind or full on adrenalin kind!
