resort info

Lake Annecy Ski Resorts represents and brings together the 4 resorts of the Massif des Aravis: La Clusaz, Le Grand-Bornand, Manigod and Saint Jean de Sixt.
Located at the crossroads of Europe, La Clusaz is a charming village with traditional architecture. It is a friendly mountain village that has retained its charm and is one of the most accessible resorts from Geneva (1 hour away) and one of the closest to Calais.


Being a dynamic international resort, La Clusaz boasts an exceptional ski area and offers a unique journey in an unspoilt setting. From the most serious skiers and boarders to apres ski enthusiasts, everyone will be happy with their choice of La Clusaz.

 

The centre of the village is having a facelift in order to improve pedestrian access. There will be 2 paved areas in front of the church and town hall, with large terraces in front of the arched arcades and shops. Small trees, sourced from local area, will be added to the area which will be gently lit in the evenings. Work is scheduled to finish for Autumn 2014.

 Other

In 2012, the company that manages the ski domain invested hugely in a big renovation project - the biggest seen in the history of La Clusaz. The first phrase was started with the Cret du Loup sector and revealed a brand new 6 seater chairlift in 2012 and will continue with the renovation of the Bossonnet in December 2014. The budget was 20m over 3 years. The phase in 2014 will consist of a 6 seater combined chairlift, cable car and a childs ski tow in the Bossonnet sector with a pass office and 85 car underground parking.

 

The centre of the village is having a facelift in order to improve pedestrian access. There will be 2 paved areas in front of the church and town hall, with large terraces in front of the arched arcades and shops. Small trees, sourced from local area, will be added to the area which will be gently lit in the evenings. Work is scheduled to finish for Autumn 2014.

ski info

LA CLUSAZ SKI AREA (in Aravis-Lake Annecy Ski Resorts)

The skiing is divided into 5 sections – Beauregard, l’Aiguille. Balme, l’Etale and Crioux-Fry/Merdassier.

 

Most of the runs are west or north west facing so due to this the snow is generally relatively good. The best snow perhaps can be found on the west facing slopes in La Balme.

 

LA CLUSAZ BEGINNERS

Nursery slopes can be found at village level, Beauregard and Cret du Merle. For gentle blues try Beauregard (there is a long blue run at 1650m down to the village called Guy Perillat) then move onto the Cret du Merle for a few more challenges. There is also a green slope there. There are long green runs at Bois de la Motte too. Beginners are well catered for in La Clusaz.

 

LA CLUSAZ INTERMEDIATES

Again try Beauregard for some great blue runs. For more challenging and wider blue runs then head for L’Etale and L’Aiguille. Finally for the more advanced head for La Balme. La Clusaz has some ideal terrain for intermediates and there is plenty of runs to choose from. The majority of red runs are above 1650m.

 

LA CLUSAZ EXPERTS

Some good expert runs can be found at La Balme – particularly the black Vraille run which is very steep. There is also an off-piste sector called Combe de Bellachat on the opposite side of the sector. There is a long black run, La Noire, that runs from Beauregard to the village. La Clusaz is well-known for its spectacular off-piste
skiing and its fantastic gullies and bowls. Over the years, it has become a mecca for off-piste skiing/freeriding with its untamed and extraordinary mountains. Not surprising then that it is the hotbed for Freeriding champions of all ages.

 

LA CLUSAZ SNOWBOARDING

Fortunately most of the drag lifts can be avoided. For beginners there are some good nursery slopes with chairlift links and La Balme is good for free-riders.

 

LA CLUSAZ RESORT RUNS

Depending on which area of La Clusaz ski domain you come from there are resort runs of all levels from green-black.

 

LA CLUSAZ NIGHTSKIING

La Clusaz organises "Full Moon" evenings once a year, where you can ski by moonlight on the Cret du Loup & Cret du Merle areas. Normally this runs from 9pm to 1am.

 

Floodlit skiing also every week from 8.30pm to 10.30pm as well on the piste by telecabine de la Patinoire. Free.

THE NORDIC SKI PARK IN LA CLUSAZ: PARADISE FOR YOUNG CROSS COUNTRY SKIERS!
This children’s fun park, set up last winter, has been a great success and will be restructured for this winter 2013/2014. Having developed the Nordic Cross and the “Piou-Piou” area (for tinies), La Clusaz decided to create an intermediary area for children to discover cross country skiing in a fun way. And it works! Children are free to try out the jumps, long slopes, fun slaloms, tunnels, bumps, raised turns, ski balls and ski hockey to their heart’s content. The park is open all season and is free for the under 6s and included in the ski pass for older children.
