I would only consider the cascades run if conditions are pretty good. It includes a long section which is basically a mountain road zig-zagging its way down the mountain and it can be a bit of a nightmare in icy conditions .Jimbobilini wrote:I've not stayed in Flaine so I can't give you any tips about the resort off the slopes but I would recommend La Pente a Jules towards the bottom of the Almandine run for a nice relaxing lunch. If it is open, do the cascades run down to Sixt. You have to catch a bus back but it is worth it.
Its a long time since I was there so don't remember the slopes terribly well. However, I do have fond memories of the place - I even liked the architecture which tends to divide people . The links over to Les Carroz can take a little while as there is a small valley in the middle. Not terribly long but I wouldn't be heading over after lunch for example.
We stayed in the Totem which is right on the piste in the village but had some skis stolen from outside the hotel one day at lunchtime so maybe be careful with equipment when down in the village area.
Snow was good on cascades today. It does get a bit icy towards the bottom on the corners but the views are worth it. I would recommend Marvel in Morillon as well, If Carlsberg did green runs.....(other lagers are available).
