Les Carroz is a fantastic skiing area, just one hour from the airport, so beat that. 250+ km of slopes that are well groomed. The village itself is charming and friendly with enough restaurants and small bars to keep you going. Despite the low snow levels this year the skiing is excellent with the pistes being kept superbly. Great snow making machines so invariably abundant snow throughout the Grand Massif. ...

Les Carroz is a large friendly village with mostly self-catering accommodation and some nice little shops. There are a range of restaurants but we had to book a couple of days ahead for a party of 5. No other nightlife in evidence so party animals may like to go elsewhere but there are some nice bars, like Marlows. There is a regular ski bus to the telecabin which is fast and there were no queues to speak of. As it was our first visit we just bought the Massif liftpass which includes just a part of Flaine. There was plenty of skiing on this pass and we especially liked the Samoens area. Although it was half term it wasn't too busy and few queues for lifts. Overall we loved the variety of the...

Every time I return to Les Carroz it continues to surprise me. The Grand Massif ski area is amazing - a real mix of tree-lined skiing at Les Carroz, open pistes at Flaine and untouched off-piste bowls above Morrillon, Samoens and Sixt. Les Carroz is a beautiful place to stay - a charming vilage compared to its ugly sister Flaine. It is also convenient, only six minutes into the heart of the ski area. Admittedely the bars are limited if you are looking for energetic aprés ski but they are certainly sufficient for most. We stayed at Chalet La Falaise (flameski) which is very comfortable with amazing views. I would certainly recommend it! ...

Stayed in the Grand Massif ski area at Les Carroz in half-term Feb 2007, just before the decent snow finally arrived. Options were limited by the snow cover, with the one open resort run crowded and heavy going - the lift down was a much better option. Conditions up at Flaine were better, but to ski over to there meant going through a couple of bottle necks where the lift queues could take at least 30 minutes. So most days we drove up to Flaine, where there were huge queues - everyone else was also heading there looking for snow. The whole area lift system is inadequate for the numbers, having many ancient and slow lifts that need upgrading, including some key ones - yet they still charge to...

Spent Feb half-term there with family and friends. Snow wasn't great but we managed. Main problem was getting down at end of the day. There are only 2 runs down to the village, one red and one blue. There is only snowmaking on the steep, very crowded (and mogully in the afternoon) red, and not on the blue, which I don't understand. They need to sort that out. Took the gondola down most days, much safer!! Gondola is at the top end of the village, so using ski buses is essential, no ski-in, ski-out here! Pleasant village centre but overrun in high season. Buses, restaurants (needed to book 2 nights in advance for a group of 10) and slopes very crowded, though even so only waited a max of 20 ...
