Samoens is a ski resort situated in a traditional Savoyard village in the French Alps. It is linked to the resorts of Flaine, Morillon and Les Carroz and together they form the Grand Massif which offers over two hundred and sixty kilometres of piste. The village lies at an altitude of sixteen hundred metres with the highest lifts reaching two thousand five hundred metres. It has an excellent snow record throughout the season. Low cost Samoens ski holidays are widely popular as there are pistes for all levels of ability. Families are very welcome here and there are good childcare facilities from the age of twelve months. There is ski tuition from the age of six and board tuition from the age of eight. Samoens is as relaxed and peaceful by night as it is by day.
Samoens has a designated children's snow park as well as an area for adults who are new to the sport. The reputation of the ski schools is very good so novices will soon move on to the easy runs above the village. Intermediates have the widest choice with many demanding blues and reds. The Flaine snow bowl is a great place to hone your skills and the tree-lined trails to neighbouring resorts have their own challenges. The lift system is extensive and there is little queueing. Samoens is not the greatest place for advanced skiers or boarders but there are twenty five kilometres of challenging runs as well as opportunities for off-piste skiing & boarding. If you choose this option, remember to take a mountain guide. The resort also has seventy kilometres of cross country trails.
The Samoens ski season begins in the third week of December and ends in the first week of April. Summer sees an influx of climbers, hill walkers and mountain bikers as well as those who want to relax amid splendid scenery. Many regional airports have direct flights to Geneva and Lyon.
