Samoens is a traditional, authentic village set in a pretty valley and is part of the Grand Massif ski area. The Grand Massif ski area is made up of 5 interlinked resorts and has a total of 265km of pistes, the majority of which are north facing which leads to great snow conditions. There are 3 snow parks in Grand Massif, with one of them being in Samoens itself, with 50% snow making coverage. Ski access from Samoens is a short bus ride from the centre of the resort and at the end of the day all skiers and snowboarders must take the gondola back down to the resort.
