What we love about the Grand Massif

Located between Chamonix and Geneva, the Grand Massif ski resort offers 139 pistes for all levels of ability, all of which benefit from an abundance of snow.

Every year, the resort attracts thousands of visitors, from ski enthusiasts who come to enjoy the 40,000 hectares of playground, to mountain lovers who venture out in search of the best views of Mont Blanc.

The Grand Massif ski area is made up of 5 resorts that allow you to immerse yourself in an incredible world in the heart of the French Alps and Haute-Savoie. Each of these resorts has its own identity and invites you to discover the Grand Massif from different angles. Here are just a few of the destinations where you can stay in this resort:

  • Flaine is the resort that offers you a natural, typically Savoyard charm for a unique and complete change of scenery.

  • Les Carroz d'Araches is the most accessible resort. Situated at an altitude of 1,200 metres, it offers a wide range of activities both in summer and winter.

  • Samoëns attracts tourists mainly because of its rich historical heritage. You can also discover an unspoilt natural environment that invites you to relax while you enjoy the various slopes.

A Green Globe certified resort

Le Grand Massif is the first resort in the world to be awarded Green Globe certification for its slopes, lifts and ancillary services.

This certification is awarded when the resort complies with certain principles approved by around a hundred governments, as part of a programme covering 40 themes. The emphasis is on supporting the local economy and protecting the environment through sustainable development. A follow-up audit is carried out every two years to reassess the resort's commitments.

The Domaine du Grand Massif is involved in a number of initiatives, such as the monitoring of biodiversity over an area of 1,400 hectares and the promotion of the local economy with the creation of the "Origine Grand Massif" label in 2014. A series of measures have also been taken to reduce the impact on the environment, including the removal of old infrastructure, the distribution of pocket ashtrays to all holidaymakers, the installation of waste bins at ski lifts, the introduction of selective sorting on the slopes, the use of organic oils for snow groomers, etc.

Educational activities are also carried out to raise awareness of the local fauna. These actions contribute to the preservation of the environment and benefit everyone, residents and tourists alike.
