Flaine, France

Flaine is one of the most popular ski areas in the Alps and it’s easy to see why. It’s one of the closest resorts to Geneva airport with a 1hr 20min transfer. Particularly popular with families, Flaine has a safe, relaxed feel to its predominantly traffic-free streets and the majority of accommodation here is ski-in/ski-out.

The Flaine Bowl has dozens of long, cruising easy and intermediate runs. There are also good nursery slopes by the resort. Not forgetting a selection of more challenging stuff, Flaine is suitable for skiers of all levels.

We recommend staying at Hotel Totem for a short break in Flaine. Ideally located in a ski-in/ski-out location in Flaine Forum, this modern hotel incorporates the resort’s quirky, urban style into its décor.
