The new roof on our Apartment is complete and last weekend was snow covered. Snow fell in some French Alp resorts giving a good covering. Samoens and other resorts in France are getting reading for the upcoming ski season.
Both Apartment Blocks had major roof refurbishment work undertaken over the summer. The view from the apartment has uninterrupted views to the Grand Massif Ski Lift.
The Grand Massif is a super ski area with 142 slopes and 67 ski lifts. On Piste skiing is suitable for beginners and experts, old and young, with 23 green slopes, 60 blue slopes, 47 red slopes and 12 black slopes. In addition there is an abundance of off piste skiing and as 80% of the slopes are north facing, they are snow sure throughout the season. Located in the Haute Savoie region and with views of Mont Blanc this area includes 5 resorts with superb links.
Samoens has a fantastic beginners area located at 1600m altitude and accessed from the village by the Grand Massif Express. This area was remodelled last season with the addition of new slopes and facilities, and replacement of the old small chair lifts with comfortable and fast new ones.
The Grand Massif will open on 22nd December, with the pre-opening of Flaine, Samoens & Les Carroz on 15th December.
