Samoens ski resort is located approximately one hour from Geneva in the Grand-Massif ski network. The Grand Masif network is split into two broad areas, Villages and Flaine and you can purchase a lift pass for these areas separately or the whole region. The village of Samoens is in the valley at 800m and skiing back to the villages is often possible throughout the season but can be a bit slushy with the assistance of some artificial snow. The ski network is well managed and has abroad range of slopes and off-piste ski areas to challenge skiers of all abilities. Samoens is a lovely ancient market town offering a traditional village feel and is a great choice for those looking to ski with children. The village centre is an old Lime tree dating back to 1438. It is traditionally a stone masons village and this can be seen throughout the village in its architecture such as the 16th Century church. The centre has some lovely shops and also has a local produce farm market held weekly.

The ski area is perfect for beginners with gentle slopes and a long 14km blue ‘Cascades’ run through the trees. There are plenty of runs for the intermediates too, particularly from the Grand Massif Express. From here there are plenty of runs with extensive views. Heading higher takes you to the expert area with numerous black runs to choose from. ‘Gers’ provides plenty of opportunity to ski, often untouched snow and the ‘Diamont Noir’ is a difficult black offering a challenge to thrill seekers. Snowboarders are also well catered for with Morillon park especially for children.

The resort is particularly good for children as the transfer time from Geneva is less than an hour. It has been awarded the French ‘Familie Plus Montagne’ label for its suitability for children and youngsters. The village is also partly pedestrianised to offer more safety. There are also lots of child friendly activities such as tobogganing, skating and dog sledging available to try.

Samoens has plenty of places to eat out and lots of friendly and relaxed bars for some apres ski drinks. The restaurants are generally more casual and all cater well for children.
