Sunshine and Empty Pistes – Skiing in the Grand Massif

Quiet Pistes and Sunshine in the Grand Massif

It’s been another fabulous day in Samoëns and the Grand Massif with clear blue skies and fantastic snow conditions. The pistes were incredibly empty and the snow consistent and responsive throughout. I spent most of the day enjoying Flaine with friends.

Tourmaline (the main route into Flaine from Samoëns) was in fantastic condition for its entire length and the various sweeping reds and blues that we played on in the Flaine bowl were incredible (Mephisto and Lapiaz two particular favourites).

Empty pistes and sunshine - what a treat

Mont Blanc was also looking pretty incredible with clear views from the top of Flaine. Smiles were the order of the day!

Sunshine + Snow + Views = Smiles

It Wasn’t All About the Pistes…

Despite there being plenty of lovely white stuff on the pistes (315cm reported at the top) there were still a few possibilities for some fresh snow. Yes, a lot of the off-piste has already been enjoyed by others, but there’s always a couple of spots offering fresh tracks to those willing to seek it. Today, the Gers Bowl provided us with a few new lines.

Looking over El’s shoulder in the pic below, you’ll see Steve about to drop in with style!

Is Steve really going to drop in there?
