What can be said about the Grand Massif Domain besides “ski heaven!”? Halfway between Chamonix and Geneva, that Grand Massif welcomes winter sports enthusiasts to a ski area of character and contrasts. Grand Massif fulfils snow fans of all levels with its 139 slopes (25 green slopes; 59 blue slopes; 44 red slopes; 11 black slopes) and gives access to large areas with its 62 ski lifts. Located in the Haute-Savoie and facing Mont Blanc, the area offers a preserved environment and a breathtaking panorama.

Extension Trip

Athens, Greece – After a fun-filled week in Grand Massif for those that choose the extension, we will fly to Athens, Greece. From there, the group will stay 3 nights at the Electra Palace Hotel in Athens.  Athens is the capital and largest city of Greece. Athens is one of the world’s oldest cities, with its recorded history spanning over 3,400 years, and its earliest human presence beginning somewhere between the 11th and 7th millennia BC.  The city is still dominated by 5th-century BC landmarks, including the Acropolis, a hilltop citadel topped with ancient buildings like the colonnaded Parthenon temple.
