The Grand Massif (as the name suggests) is a vast high-altitude ski area with amazing panoramic views of the Mont Blanc mountain range. Most people stay in the resorts of Samoëns, Morillon and Flaine.
However, just a bit further down the mountain is the underrated resort of Les Carroz. You get the traditional feel of a French alpine village with good shops and ace rustic food without the mega prices you get at higher altitudes.
Also, it’s less than an hour from Geneva so ideal for a long weekend break!
Flights: From £43 return to Geneva
Accommodation: Les Carroz Chalets offer £420 for 4 nights stay including whole chalet experience including hot tubs and food
6 day lift pass: £188 (€225)
