SamoŽns is a beautiful old town in the Giffre Valley. Once a thriving stone cutting centre, SamoŽns is the only resort in France to be listed as a historical monument.

Medieval fountains, rustic old buildings and an ancient church all help to sum up a charming resort. Despite recent growth, the bars and restaurants still give a feel of the real rural France.

260 km of pistes link the five resorts of the Grand Massif (Sixt-Fer-ŗ-Cheval, Flaine, Les Carroz d'Ar‚ches, Morillon and SamoŽns). There are 75 ski lifts, 3 different types of Jampark, descents of varying difficulty, entertainment on a regular basis, restaurants. From the village to The Grand Domaine: 8 minutes


With the new car parks sited around the departure zone on the banks of the Giffre (448 places in 2003 and 750 places in its final phase), from a starting altitude of 700 metres, skiers have rapid access to one of the biggest ski areas of the Haute Savoie, which also has one of the best snow records.
And so the harmony between the conservation village and the vast ski area becomes reality.

The Grand Massif Express is now operational.
