The Giffre Valley and immediate surroundings have a wide range of pistes available. These pistes have something to challenge all ability ranges, from beginner to expert. They are at a range of altitudes, from 660m to 1840m above sea level, so there is always something available even in times of poor snow cover.
The road to the Col de Joux Plane is shown as closed on road signs and satnav systems. The closure is normal in winter and the road is blocked immediately after the parking for the Col, 100m before the Foyer. It is not possible to continue on the road and descend towards Morzine as the road is now used by ski pistes. So don't worry you can access the ski area by car.
Unfortunately, there will be a surcharge of 10 euros per session for instruction given in the northern sector, due to the additional access costs of the ski lifts.
The Giffre Valley is located to the east of Geneva. One hour by road from Geneva Airport. During the winter months the area is well served by many airport transfer services.
