Ski holidays in La Clusaz

Picturesque village full of character and a beautiful ski area with views of Mont Blanc

The very attractive Savoyard village of La Clusaz enjoys a breathtaking setting amongst the Aravis mountain range. La Clusaz’s ski domain is made up of five interlinked mountains, with excellent green and blue runs making this an ideal resort for confidence building beginners and families. For intermediate and advanced skiers there are varied slopes and an abundance of off-piste terrain (we recommend hiring a guide) plus the option to ski Le Grand Bornand with the purchase of an Aravis lift pass. Enjoy the incredible views of Mont Blanc from the top of the Col de Balme, and ski down to explore the traditional and characterful village church and shops. We particularly enjoy the fact that ski joëring is available - a rare opportunity to be pulled along on your skis by a horse!
