Best recognised as being the centre for cross-country skiing since it hosted the Winter Olympics, Les Saisies also has extensive alpine skiing linked with its neighbours to form the 'Espace Diamant'.  It links six pretty alpine villages: Crest Voland Cohennoz, Flumet, Hauteluce, Notre Dame de Bellecombe, Praz sur Arly and Les Saisies.


Set among forests and alpine meadows, with stunning views of Mont Blanc, the Beaufortain and Aravis ranges, the ski area extends between the Beaufortain and Val d’Arly, offering a very varied terrain.


Additional ski facts info, main ski area listed in panel above

Local ski area Les Saisies





No. of slopes 54










71 snow cannons, 1 snowpark,

2 boarder cross and 2 slalom





Les Saisies benefits from above average snow conditions – the French weather centre confirms that since 1982 the average accumulated snowfall is superior to all surrounding mountain ranges.


If your kids are too small to take the chairlift this need stop them having a go at skiing. 3 ski ropes are available for kids. Les Trolles is located in the cross country ski park (also accessible to adults), Les Lutins is near the snow garden and Les Gobelins is at Bisanne 1500m. They are safe and easy to use and are FREE!


Within the Espace Diamant ski domain you have access to ski the other areas including Notre-Dame de Bellecombe which is fully lift linked to Les Saisies.


Les Saisies is the top Nordic ski resort in France. The Olympic area has 80km of marked pistes and extends over a large sunny plateau between 1570 and 1760 metres high, which guarantees a long season of snow cover.



Les Saisies is an ideal resort for beginners who will find plenty of gentle nursery slopes and long wide blues to progress on.



Intermediates will enjoy well-kept pistes on which to gain confidence, and easy links into Crest-Voland and the runs from the top of Mont-Lachet.



Advanced skiers will discover the black off the top of Légette with its narrow couloirs, and there are off-piste runs through the trees. Hauteluce’s ski area has many challenging runs and is a favourite among local freeriders.



There are multiple access points so the resort runs are of all levels from green-black.

Historical Snow


Les Saisies Snow Report – 2004-2014 (10 season average)


Les Saisies has always benefited from a superb snow record thanks to the microclimate resulting from the proximity of Mont Blanc. It is for this very reason that it was chosen to hold the Nordic ski 1992 Winter Olympics events (Cross-Country skiing is usually practised at bottom of the downhill ski areas). Here is the snow record data for Les Saisies. The first row shows the week for which the measurement applies eg. February 3 is the 3rd week in February. Top slopes shows the average snow cover in cm at the top of the ski area. Bottom Slopes shows the average snow cover in cm at the bottom of the ski area (this is generally where the nursery pistes are located). About 10 cm is generally enough to ski but it very much depends on what’s below ie. grass or more rocky surface.
