Winter is coming


Although the weather is absolutely breathtaking in Autumn here, there is now a chill in the evenings and temperatures can change day to day.

The first snow fell on the top of Le Buet last week and kids are back to school. So Winters’ on it’s way !

We have exciting news for the ski area this season, last years opening up of the valley between Samoens and Morillon was a great success and this season they are adding to the super fast Coulouvier chairlift with it’s excellent 2 new blue runs. They are adding 2 more new reds, they have nearly finished the red run from the Samoens side and a Morillon red is planned to also be ready for this season.

Another exciting project is now also on the way, the proposed Sixt-Flaine link. Connecting the resorts of Sixt and Flaine via a lift system has been in discussion for years, and we are excited that this project is now officially underway.

The plan is for two new lifts that will link Sixt and Flaine using our favourite off piste bowl the Combe de Gers. There would be an arrival and departure station from Lac du Gers and the painful long Gers draglift will also be replaced by a fixed chairlift yay ! Therefore avoiding the feeling that your hip may dislocated at any moment will be amazing. The improvements will also include kilometres of new pistes and three new runs to access the new chairlifts.

 A Grand plan, for the Grand Massif on an epic scale opening the already epic Gers !!

Samoens, Flaine and Les Carroz are also planning to open a week earlier on the 15 th Dec which is all Great news !! The lift company are hoping for another bumper snowy season like the marvellous 2017 /2018 season. Grand Massif is just getting better by the year – can’t wait to ski and make some fresh tracks !!
