This page will tell you all you need to know about airport transfers to Grand Massif, a ski resort located in Haute-Savoie department, France, which comes with 265km of Piste, at altitudes ranging from 700m to 2500m. The Ski area includes 5 French Ski Resorts with a combined total of 265km of downhill skiing, with 351 individual pistes, served by 78 ski lifts. The appropriate Lift Pass allows you to ski or snowboard in any of the ski areas of Flaine, Les Carroz, Morillon, Samoëns and Sixt Fer à Cheval. With skiing above 2000 metres, snow cover is generally reliable. We have listed the airports in order of distance from the resort, with the nearest at the top. This should give you the best idea of the airport transfer you need. We have also taken a look at alternative transport methods to and from the resort. Public transport options, if available, are given towards the end of the page.
The Grand Massif area was born in 1980 by the combination of the Massif (Les Carroz, Morillon, Samoëns, Vernant and Sixt Fer à Cheval) and the Flaine bowl resort; the first combined ski passes were sold for the 1981 season. The area provides a tremendous variety of on piste runs, off piste and between piste skiing, scenery and height, providing good skiing in all types of weather and conditions.
The area consists of a ridgeline running between the valleys of the River Arve (coming down from Chamonix), and the River Giffre (sourced in the National Park area above Sixt), with spurs running off the ridgeline to form the Flaine bowl and the high valleys and ridges of the Massif. In the best snow conditions it is possible to ski from the Tete des Saix (2120m) down to Morillon village at 700m on a choice of runs, and from the top of Flaine (2480m) down to Sixt at 800m on the classic picturesque 14 km Cascades run.
