Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Picnic Rooms Grand Massif

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
We are frequent visitors to Grand Massif, based around Les Carroz and if we do not use the picnic room at the top of the Telecabine for lunch we'll just plonk oursleves down piste-side, Les Grandes Platieres, looking at Mont Blanc is fabulous. I have noticed on the piste map that Flaine, Vernant and Samoens all indicate picnic rooms but we have not been successful in finding out exactly where they are, not that we have tried too hard. Can anybody please tell me where these and any other picnic rooms in the GM are located?.

Ta!

When I was there a few years ago, I stumbled into one in Morillion 1100. It is attached to one of the restaurants, and I do not think it was well marked. I cannot recall the name of the restaurant, but it is on your right if you are coming down blue piste Sairon, just before the start of the Sairon chirlift. The picnic room is accessed by walking through the restaurant and down some stairs (towards the toilets), although I guess there might be another entrance direct from the piste?

I only saw that one and the one at Les CArroz telecabine, so I can't really be of any more help.

There was a general discussion about picnic huts or "Salle Hors Sac" http://snowheads.com/ski-forum/viewtopic.php?t=71938
I can't remember if any got mentioned in the GM.
It does seem like they are not heavily signposted or advertised. Which I guess is understandable. Keep the riff raff out and all that.

The Samoens one is just before you get to Samoens 1600 there is a restaurant on the LHS and it's the outside of there.

There's the one at Carroz top telecabine.

I think the Flaine on is down the serpentine on the RHS.

I can't think where the Morillon one is.

marcellus,

A couple of weeks ago I think you mentioned a great cheap cafe on Sairon in Morillon.

What is it's name again and where is it?

I've got 3 days there this weekend.

Cheers,

Phil

OK I'll try and describe it for you;
> COme down the Arete from the top of the Molliet chair.
> Go past the top of the lifts from Samoens (RHS)
> Go past the return to Les Carroz (LHS)
> past the helicopter landing area (RHS)
> Head for the Marvel (effectively straight on)
> just where the last blue turns off to the right to go back to Samoens look left and you will probably see some tracks heading for the trees.
> Follow the tracks for about 300m and there's an old looking farm/chalet there on the rhs.

the one in Flaine is downstairs at the top of the cable car - head for the toilets and it is down there round the corner. no view but a useful place to eat when it is cold.
There is also one at the bottom of green piste behind the ticket office (follow the green piste instead of getting ported, then get the chair back up to Lac de Vernant

Useful information, @maggieleonard, but I expect they've finished their picnics now.
