Morillon is part of the Grand Massif (includes Flaine, Morillon, Les Carroz, Samoens, Sixt) ski area which offers a great varied terrain of skiing and snowboarding throughout the winter season (mid December to the end of April). The Grand Massif is known for its consistently good snow record. The slopes range in difficulty from fairly flat and wide beginners slopes, to narrow and steep slopes for advanced skiers and boarders. The Grand Massif has 265 km of pistes served by 75 ski-lifts and is one of the largest ski areas in Europe.
Morillon and Les Carroz have beautiful tree lined pistes. As you ski over to Samoens and then on to Flaine the scenery changes to wide open pistes and stunning vistas of the mountains. There are several peaks on the way to Flaine which culminate at nearly 2600m. From the peaks Mont Blanc can clearly be seen, making a great backdrop for holiday photos!
It takes about 1-2 hours to ski from Morillon to Flaine and makes a great day trip on skis or board, with lunch at a mountainside restaurant at Flaine. Skiing/snowboarding off piste is exciting with huge areas of of open powdery snow and tree lined slopes. There are also several snow parks to practice your tricks.
The Grand Massif has stunning 360° views from the peaks and with somewhere different to go every day on the 265 km of piste you will not regret skiing the Grand Massif. To see a promotional video of Grand Massif ski area click here.
