About La Clusaz

La Clusaz, is a picturesque alpine village, and with its neighbour, Grand Bornand, is the centre of the Aravis ski area, so it’s surrounded by around 120kms worth of downhill ski slopes. Many of the best places to stay in La Clusaz can be found just above town, which is where you’ll also find some of the area’s best views. But you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to views here, one of our Guru’s recommendations for the best places to stay in La Clusaz also has views of Mont Blanc, just ‘up the road’.

La Clusaz is a great spot for intermediate skiers, with plenty of choice when it comes to blue and red runs, while more advanced skiers might need to head off piste on the north facing slopes. La Clusaz is also a good choice for a spot of cross country skiing. And the mountains here have some of the most interesting rock formations in the French Alps, so there’s plenty of variety when it comes to terrain.

The main concern is snow coverage, because this is quite a low resort, but it’s certainly very charming, with an unspoiled, and very French atmosphere. La Clusaz is also a great choice for a quick weekend getaway - it's only an hour from Geneva Airport.

But don't forget that during the peak months it gets very busy. So if you want to guarantee a room in one of the best places to stay in La Clusaz over the New Year or February Half Term, get organised and book well ahead.
