As an authentic and charming town, La Clusaz is a becoming more and more popular with foreign visitors each year. The serenity of the town and its blissful mountains are great combination mixed with the ski area which has a bit of everything for everyone. The traditional, old town is very easy to get to, only a few kilometres away from Annecy. La Clusaz ranks amongst the very select "Top of the French alps” which guarantees high quality services to the most demanding of international clientele. The warm Savoyard welcome is given by the professional locals, proud of their local region and highly attentive of their guests. The three major lakes surrounding the Aravis range and its geographical positioning lend themselves to a high annual snowfall that covers La Clusaz from December to late April. The four resorts that make up the massive Aravis ski area guarantee quality skiing in one of Frances most natural ski areas. With an annual average snowfall of more than six metres, La Clusaz is one Frances snowiest resorts. In La Clusaz there is no need to climb to 3000 metres to enjoy the pleasures of the powder skiing, which lasts until spring! With the operation "Première Trace" (Fresh Tracks) in the legendary ski area of La Balme from the first snowfall, you are able to enjoy the absolutely virgin slopes which descend freely over 1500 metres of vertical elevation! La Clusaz is internationally renowned for its collection of professional freeskiers and freestylers. La Clusaz has for a long time been established as the one of the flagship freestyle resorts. You too can find your style with their special snowpark pass. La Clusaz is also home to the largest Nordic ski area in the Haute-Savoie, with over 80 km of cross country ski tracks spread over two exceptional sites: le Plateau des Confins, the official World Cup Nordic skiing venue, and the Plateau de Beauregard, a cross country circuit which is nestled in a simply enchanting natural environment. Head in the sun, the body submerged in 29 °c water looking over the ski slopes: what good that great big Jacuzzi does after a day on the slopes! And tomorrow, why not enjoy the mountain air whilst speeding along on a dog sled ride or exploring on snowshoes? How about being pampered with a hot stone massage after losing your paragliding virginity? All and more can be accomplished in La Clusaz! In La Clusaz, life does not end when the chairlifts stop, in fact quite the contrary! Don't be surprised by the intensity of the La Clusaz nightlife: the bars and cosy lounges along with DJs playing in the evenings on the terraces of mountain restaurants and afterwards there is a great array of after hour's nightclubs! For decades now La Clusaz has been famous for organising some of the weirdest and most imaginative events out there, so, why stop now? The ski resort doesn't want its reputation to get away from itself; a couple of events last year included a Full moon party on skis and a waterslide competition where guys on rubber rings flung themselves across a glacial lake. The new La Clusaz idea is to combine their imaginative events with freestyle snowboarding and freeskiing. The annual event, the Free Sessions is already starting to make a name for itself! Have a look! If you have children, child care in La Clusaz is covered: the day-care / nursery with the "Club Mouflets" and the "Club of Champions” and in the snow gardens the "Piou-Pious" and the "Club Marmottons" ...
