I have booked to go to Flaine for a few days in December to celebrate the wife's birthday. It probably would have been a good idea to take her as well, but..........
Only joking, I value my bits too much to not have taken her on this one.
Anyway, we have not been to Flaine before, so any tips/info could well be useful.
As it's December I'm guessing that it is not worth buying a full area pass as I believe many of the areas are lower than Flaine, so snow may be a bit questionable, but any guidance would be gratefully received.
Not completely sure of the details but I seem to recall that one of the features of the area is that it littered with large boulders and so requires deep snow to give good cover. I don't think this is an issue for the piste but you might would probably need to be careful off-piste. As always a guide is highly recommended.
One negative from my last visit there - we stayed in the Totem in the main village. One day, we went back to the hotel for lunch and left our skis outside. Unfortunately, about 3 pairs were stolen that day . We were next to a road so it may have an opportunist in a van passing by but still - be careful when in the village!
