Ski Lifts in Samoens

The elegant, efficient, and scenically beautiful Grand Massif Express operates every day, longer as the light improves. There is a large free car park at the bottom, bus stops and clean toilets. Queues are rare, although you might have a short wait on a French holiday weekend morning.

Samoens Ski Lifts & Lift Passes 

The view of the village and mountains from the large comfortable 8-seater cabins is spectacular. You can choose to drive, take a ski bus or just walk to and from the lift from the village of Samoens, either along the road or by following the trail by the side of the spectacular, fast-flowing Giffre river which is a mecca for water rafters in summer. 

The pass prices are well-structured, with access to runs according to your standard, and inclination. You may wish to stay in the main area (Massif) for a few days, then go further afield (Grand Massif) later on. “Seniors”, can enjoy a couple of days’ ski-ing, then try some snow-shoeing or just watch the action. Passes are free for under 5s and the over 75s!

Your Massif or Grand Massif pass gives you access to all 80 lifts, including the new 6-seater high-speed Chariande Express lift which will take you up to the Tete des Saix(2120m) in just 9 minutes, and open up the whole ski area for you. With over 265k of piste (140 individual pistes) in Samoens alone, that is a lot of skiing.
