Visitors to the Grand Massif can expect to see major changes this coming winter. In a press release issued this morning, the Grand Massif is pleased to announce the following projects are currently underway
The Coulouvrier Bowl
Considerable expansion of the Grand Massif ski area with the development of the Coulouvrier Bowl between Samoens and Morillon:
- Creation of 4 new ski runs (2 blue runs followed by 2 red runs for the 2018/19 winter season), equating to the addition of 42 hectares of pistes to the ski area.
- New 6-seater, detachable Coulouvrier chairlift, departing from 1200m and arriving at 2120m. With a record length of 2850m, this will be the longest lift of its kind in Europe, transporting skiers in just 10 minutes at a rate of 3000 passengers per hour.
- Development of the snow-making network with the implantation of 70 new snow canons to cover the new ski area.
Pistes: Samoens & Morillon
Extensive landscaping of the Tête de Saix summit is being undertaken in order to improve the flow of this vital intersection zone. The goal is to improve safety for skiers traveling between Flaine, Les Carroz, Morillon and Samoens. The transformed landscape will offer fabulous 360 degree views over the surrounding alpine landscape.
The Grand Massif was awarded “Green Globe” certification in the Autumn of 2016 and is the first resort for the entirety of its services (ski lifts, pistes and associated services).
