Straight out of the Flaine gondola you’ll be greeted by a spectacular view of Mont Blanc. Go left towards Samoëns and stick to the right of the grassy peak in front of you. This is proper wilderness and the sort of place that would normally have taken many hours of pushing to access. The fun sheep tracks winding through the shale outcrops slowly turn into a main trail, which eventually brings you to the forest above Samoëns and a singletrack with switchbacks and natural wall rides all the way into the town.
