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.

La Clusaz Radikal Mountain Junior
YOUNG OFF-PISTE SKIING LOVERS, NOTE DOWN THE DATE!

With a pressing demand from the younger generation, La Clusaz ski resort had to develop its annual freeride event “Radikal Mountain” in a new way, in order to welcome the young fledging riders. More and more, young gifted riders want to battle off-piste, like their elders on the Freeride World Tour. This freeride competition for skiers aged from 13 to 17yrs follows the same rules as the official competitions for older riders: judging, format, security... The only changes are difficulty and drop-off.

From Saturday 17 to Sunday 18 January 2015

The famous Full Moon Party is returning to La Clusaz again for the 12th year running! Various slopes are open for the occasion where you can enjoy an exceptional and festive skiing experience under the stars and party in the numerous mountain restaurants and bars of the resort as they come together to lay on a great night.

ski info

Genuine mountain village with more than 132km of pistes in the La Clusaz domain and a ski bus link to neighbouring Grand Bornand (Aravis ski area is both Grand Bornand and La Clusaz) provides further skiing opportunities. Suited to all levels of skiers from beginners to experts.

 

The La Clusaz domain has some of the best snow conditions in France, with the Aravis massif forming the first ‘natural barrier’ to the Alps and so capturing all the precipitation.

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.
