I have skiied in Flaine now for the past 5 seasons. Once you get over the first impressions of the " unique" and apparently highly prized architectural style, this resort has much to commend it to skiers of all standards. If the building style does offend, youcan always stay in the new Scandinavian style chalets above Foret. The two main accomodation and shopping/ nightlife areas - Forum and Foret, are compact, traffic free and well linked by walkways and free funicular style elevators. The resort may not suit the most avid party animals but that does mean it will suit every one else. There are some good bars and a few good restaurants in both foret and Forum. Shopping consists of good ski shops , decent small supermarkets and a few excellent specialist deli type food stores. Skiers are well catered for on the hill with plenty of restaurants/ snack/ bars dotted throughout the extensive ski area. Links within and across the Grand Massif areas are very good and queueing rarely, if ever, a problem. Lift passes seem to me to be good value. Watch out for special offers on these and on accomodation booked directly with the resort.The runs themeselves are varied and interesting, from steep and bumpy to pistes on which even the wobbliest of beginners will be able to build confidence. The two main ski schools, ESF and Ski Ecole internationale are well established and efficiently run. Both have good child care/ beginner classes. My own children certainly benefited fron their time in the SEI's " Green Mouse Club" I have skied in many French resorts. There are certainly more picturesque Alpine villages but the views from the accomodation are stunning whilst the vista from the top terminal of the telecabine over to Mont Blanc is fabulous. Uplift is fast and modern with runs that will flatter and challenge. In the 5 years I've been there, snow and sunshine have been plentiful The resort itself is an easy drive from Uk or from Geneva airport, being autoroute for all but the final 1.5 hours. Go, I doubt you'll be disappointed and at least you can make up your own mind about that architecture
