Serpentine blue slope, Flaine The ski resort of Flaine is situated in the Haute-Savoie region of the French Alps between Geneva and Chamonix. It is part of the Grand Massif ski area, which also includes the resorts of Samoëns, Les Carroz, Morillon and Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval.

Flaine is an integrated pedestrianised resort offering "doorstep skiing". It was designed and built by the architect Marcel Breuer. The functional architecture is simple but visionary.

Flaine is also an open air museum where you can find works by Picasso, Vasarely and Dubuffet.

Flaine's ski area is suitable for skiers of all levels, from beginners to advanced level. From the top of the Grandes Platières, at 2500 metres, an exceptional panorama awaits you with stunning views of the Mont-Blanc, Aravis and Jura mountain ranges.
