- Cross-country skiing
During the winter season (December to April) you can combine your French lessons with skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing and even fat-biking! Samoëns is part of the Grand Massif ski area with 139 pistes and endless off-piste possibilities. Thanks to its exceptional geographic position and its high altitude, the skiing area has excellent snow conditions throughout the winter season. You’ll also find a large range of cross-country ski trails amongst beautiful Alpine lakes and forests as well as beautiful unspoiled areas for snow-shoeing and on foot exploring.
