Being a high altitude resort, and with much of the bowl facing north-west, the region has consistently good snow cover. Snow canons service many of the lower slopes to ensure quality skiing here too.

Beginners 

The wide, gentle blues of Serpentine, Cristal and Olivine are perfect runs for beginners to practice carving their turns. We recommend the Cascade run from Flaine to Sixt, reached via the Serpentine blue, which offers 14km of continuous skiing. More challenging blue runs include Tourmaline and Mephisto. A point to note: piste classification is generally accurate, but the Tourmaline run back to Flaine under the Grands Vans chair is a challenge!

A bonus for beginners is the location of the easy runs. The green run located at Flaine’s top station enables beginners to learn while surrounded by views of the bowl and Mont Blanc and not just at the base. Nursery slopes are located next to the village.

Intermediates

Intermediate skiers should make for the Grand Massif area to seek out some nice blue and red – the terrain here is perfect for intermediates. Skiers who are keen to progress should head to a hairy red run called Faust which offers a decent amount of vertical. It’s opposite the Serpentine and runs all the way down from the top station to the resort. There are some steep but manageable sections.

Shy intermediates should be able to handle the Serpentine piste while more confident intermediates should take on Mephisto.A popular run is the 14km-long, lift-free Cascades piste.

Experts

Most of the expert terrain is found off-piste and it’s takes a high degree of skill to tackle it – the backcountry here is among the best in Europe so head out with a local guide to find the best powder safely. Skilled skiers will love the side-country as well as the moguls of Gers but a word of warning - the Gers draglift a challenge in itself. Expect unexpected jolts.

Other challenges for advanced skiers and snowboarders include Styx and Le Diamant Noir

Freestylers will find some great natural hits and manmade obstacles to conquer. One of the top snow parks around, the HO5 Jampark can be found on the Calcédoine run over in the Aujon area.
