Winter in Samoens

When summer 2016 draws to a close, the winter season's snow will, as always, reign over Samoëns - one of the 5 proud resorts of the Grand Massif.

The Grand Massif is the 4th largest ski-linked area in France with 265km of pistes upto an altitude of 2500m. Flaine, Les Carroz, Morillon, Samoëns and Sixt together offer access to 144 pistes…if you’re one of those people that are overwhelmed by choice…you’re in trouble! Be prepared for lots of powder days at the summit, the Grand Massif runs, clear blue skies with sun reflecting off the snow and breath taking panoramic views that no winter wonderland postcard could ever emulate.

The Grand Massif ski domain will be open from Saturday 17th December 2016 to 17th April 2017.

A few years ago, we saw the opening of the Chariande Express Chairlift which is the Ferrari of all chair lifts: from 1600 to 2120ft in 9 minutes, leaving plenty of time for you to try out the others! Winter 2016/17 brought with it a new red piste in Samoëns that promises an "awe-inspiring panorama". There are also 3 new pistes in Flaine, adding to the reputation of The Grand Massif as “one of the world’s biggest ski areas”.

Enjoy some leisurely skiing/snow-boarding, show off your speed riding talent, take in the stunning views of the Mt Blanc mountain range from Les Grandes Platieres, spend time with the children on the nursery runs at 1600 or simply be! Skidooing, tobogganing, ski-trekking and ice-climbing are all on offer too...Samoëns has it all for the whole family.

All made complete by the vibe in the rustic village; the hustle and bustle of locals and holidaymakers strolling around the village square, gathered around a 'vin chaud maison' cart catching up with the day's events or skating in Le Patinoire till dusk; the bars, restaurants, patisseries and pizzerias lit up and in full flow, and the little trinkets, crafts and clothes shops which are like festive grottos inviting all to peruse them.

Spend adrenalin-filled days out, relax amongst the amazing scenery, spend time in the village or simply relax indoors, indulge in the Jacuzzi bath, play games on the Wii console, and just enjoy the breath taking scenery of the alpine plains from the balcony of Apartment Buqa.
