2014/15 New year skiing in the Alps
The pretty village of Samoens located in the heart of the Haute Savoie region provides a fantastic ski holiday destination. Being linked to the famous Grand Massif ski region, Sameons provides visitors with easy access to 265km of pistes across the 5 interlinked resorts of Flaine, Samoens, Les Carroz, Morillon, Samoens and Sixt Fer a Cheval.
Thanks to its variety of runs and off piste areas, Samoens attracts all levels of ski and snowboarders as there is something for all abilities. Whether it be checking out one of the 53 blue runs, 51 red runs or tackling one of the14 black runs, heading out into the off piste terrain or testing out your skills in one of the snowboard parks, you most certainly will not run out of options!
Alongside the fantastic variety of terrain, the record snow levels are another key element seeing visitors return year on year. Throughout the season the Grand Massif region has regular snow and with 80% of the pistes being north facing, visitors get to take advantage and enjoy good snow conditions through to spring.
The variety does not end on the pistes, as the town also offers a great choice of restaurants and bars to enjoy après beers and good quality food after a long and fulfilling day up the hill. Samoens has also been awarded with the Famile Plus quality label and is therefore an ideal destination for families and friends alike.
