An ideal location for your ski and snowboard holiday and spring, summer and autumn walking.

The chalet backdrop - breathtaking mountain surroundings for your ski and walking holiday

Sixt itself stands at about 750m (approx 3000 ft) and some of our chalets are situated just 50m from Beginner and Intermediate pistes, served by button and chair lifts.

The Caisse, where you can buy ski passes for the whole Grand Massif domaine, is the same distance. There are several ski bus stops throughout Sixt and the Ski Bus is a free service taking you to the Grand Massif Express lift of Samoens, which accesses the whole of the Grand Massif Ski and Snowboard Terrain(rising to 2561m).

A not to be missed experience - in good conditions - is the 14kms (9 mile) run "Les Cascades" back from Flaine.
