"Les Carroz is a gem of a resort, which is becoming increasingly popular with British skiers. It's a small traditional French village with access to the world class Grand Massif ski area - what more could you want! After a day on the slopes, a vin chaud in Le Marlow is the perfect way to finish the day!"

Les Carroz Ski Holidays

Les Carroz is located within the Grand Massif ski area and is a traditional French village popular with families. Les Carroz is also one of the closest ski resorts to Geneva so offers a quick and easy transfer. 

The village nestles in a sunny position surrounded by tree lined slopes and offers a charming mix of chalet-style timber Savoyard buildings. The centre of Les Carroz offers a choice of bars, restaurants and shops and there's lots to do including ice skating and sledging. 

As part of the Grand Massif, Les Carroz's ski area is linked to several other resorts, including Flaine, allowing skiers to reach high altitude slopes with great snow records and runs for all abilities. 

Skiing in Les Carroz

Perched on a plateau at 1140m, Les Carroz is a traditional alpine village in the heart of the Grand Massif ski area which includes the neighbouring resorts of Flaine, Samoëns, Morillon and Sixt, giving access to approximately 265km of pistes.

With the whole of the Grand Massif - one of the five largest interconnected ski areas in the French Alps - accessible in just six minutes via the Kédeuze gondola, the resort is an excellent base for exploring the extensive terrain. 

For beginners, the village's nursery slopes are protected and quiet and there are lots of gentle blues nearby to progress onto. Intermediates will enjoy the whole Grand Massif area, particularly the runs down to Les Carroz itself.

Advanced skiers or boarders will find spectacular powder bowls if they head towards Flaine or Samoëns as well as challenging black pistes. Experts can also explore the crevasses of the Flaine bowl, the narrow moguls of the Diamant Noir, or the ominous Combe de Gers basin (with a guide).

There is plenty to keep boarders happy with a large terrain park in both Flaine and Samoëns. In Les Carroz itself there are two boardercross courses and the "Oasis Cool Zone" snowpark suitable for all levels with a variety of features such as jumps, rails and boxes. Both the boardercross and snowpark areas have a video zone to film your progress and even a WiFi hotspot to allow you to share on social media.

Après-Ski in Les Carroz

Les Carroz is not renowned for lively après ski but it does have some great ways to spend the evening off the slopes. La Vache Qui Ride is a unique organisation offering a guided evening snowshoe walk to a teepee up the mountain. Enjoy a traditional fondue at the top before a torchlit trek back down to Les Carroz.

In the village The Marlow on the main Place d‘Ambiance gets the latest sunshine and serves huge cocktails. The Carpe Diem Pub also offers cocktails and is usaully lively with frequent live music. Later in the evening, La Pointe Noire starts to get busy and you'll often find live bands here.

Dining in Les Carroz

In the village itself L'Agora is a very popular restaurant for both lunchtime snacks and evening meals in the town square. Aux Petits Oignons gets glowing reviews for its tasty homemade cuisine. La Spatule is popular and serves crepes and Savoyard specialities. Le Gron specialises in meat and fish cooked on an open fire. Les Servages is probably the most renowned restaurant in Les Carroz and is ideal for a special occasion or simply if you feel like spoiling yourself. 

Activities in Les Carroz

Non skiers have plenty of adrenaline-packed activities in Les Carroz such as paragliding and fat biking. Nocturnal 'snake' sledging (several sledges attached together in a line) is also available under the supervision of a guide from 6pm.

For something quieter why not try a snow shoe outing? The resort also has an outdoor ice rink and sledging area suitable for families. Les Carroz's Aquacime centre has a heated outdoor pool, a wellbeing centre with sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi and a fitness centre. Les Carroz also has a weekly market on Tuesday mornings.
