About Les Carroz

Part of the Grand Massif ski fields, Les Carroz is a beautiful traditional alpine village, famous for its excellent family facilities and easy access. As well as skiing, Les Carroz is a great base to try other alpine sports, and it's less than an hour by car from Geneva. With a wide range of accommodation to choose from the best places to stay in Les Carroz vary from small apartments to luxury chalets and hotels.

There are around 265kms of piste in the Grand Massif region, most of it north facing, so the snow tends to last quite well. And there are a number of snow cannons to ensure there's snow to begin with. With that much ground, there's plenty of choice for skiers of all levels. And there's a shuttle bus stopping at a number of spots in Les Carroz which take you right to the chairlift which accesses the Grand Massif.

If you fancy a spot of scenic skiing there are some nice woodland runs right above the village. Or you could just relax in one of the little village cafes scattered around the main square, and watch everyone else hard at it. Non-skiers can also try ice skating, dog sledding, ice climbing, a night-time luge or maybe even a hot air balloon flight.

What not to miss

  • Go paragliding with Air Passion Parapente - a wonderful way to enjoy the area's natural beauty!
  • After a long day skiing go pamper yourself in the Aquacime spa.
  • If you fancy an evening tipple then the Carpediem bar is a top spot.

During the ski season the resort does tend to fill up fast so to ensure one of the best places to stay in Les Carroz we advise you book well in advance.
