Chalet Milou stands in an ideal location: in a quiet wooded spot 50 metres from the Ski Bus stop, and just 400 metres walk from the Morillon cable car, which connects directly into the Grand Massif ski area with 265km of slopes available for all types of skiers and snowboarders from beginners to advanced level.
There are 3 ski lifts within 1 km of the front door, which are as follows:
The Morillon Village gondola station is either a 400m walk, or you can use the free ski bus, which takes 2 minutes, or you can drive in 2 minutes to the huge free car park just opposite the gondola station. The gondola takes you direct to Morillon 1100, and then on via the chairlift to Tete de Saix at 2120m and from there you can access all ski areas of the Grand Massif.
You could alternatively use the Vercland cable car – 700 metres by car (free parking next to the lift) or a 4 minute free ski bus ride – cable car taking you to Samoëns 1600 and then with the high speed chairlift to the Tete de Saix at 2120m and into the Grand Massif ski area.
Samoëns Grand Massif Express – a new super fast gondola. 1 km by car or 6 minutes by free ski bus, taking you to Samoëns 1600 and then with the high speed chairlift to the Tete de Saix at 2120m and into the Grand Massif ski area.
With over 265 km of pistes, 148 slopes and more than 70 lifts, the Grand Massif is one of the best ski areas in Europe. The 1100 snow machines ensure that over 50% of the slopes can be covered by artificial snow, if the need arises.
