Les Carroz Ski Resort Guide
Skiing in Les Carroz
The resort is linked to the huge Grand Massif (Samoëns, Morillon, Sixt and Flaine) and provides extensive skiing for all levels and no queues. The gondola and chair lift go straight up to the Grand Massif area, but there is a steep 300m walk up from the centre (the nursery drag is a help).
Back from Flaine, the runs to Les Carroz are short but offer a wide variety of trails, including more difficult sections at the top of the red runs and some good off-piste. There is ample parking by the gondola departure. The ski school’s torch-lit descent is not to be missed – it starts off with fireworks and ends with vin chaud and live jazz in the square
Snowboarding in Les Carroz
Flaine suits boarders quite well offering varies terrain and off-piste opportunities. The main lifts are now chairs are gondolas although a drag exists by the terrain park. For freeriders there is the area above the Samoens lift to exploit and trees are abundant in Les Carroz. For those more concerned with jumping and spinning the snowboard park should satisfy your needs. For the budding nipper there is a kids half-pipe called Fantasurf.
