La Clusaz is a very spread resort. It is famous for its authentic, posh and preserved aspect.
The heart of the village, with its church and place around which are shops and activities, is very nice to stroll and enjoy the atmosphere.
The resort then goes in two directions: the confins and Aravis pass. Along by these roads, there are many chalets, residences and small hamlets.
There are few accomodations that are right next to the slopes. Free shuttles offered by the resort, will allow you to go to the slopes departure but also to the village center where all the night activity is.
La Clusaz, which reputation is firmly established, is welknown for the freeriders and the freestylers all around the world. It offers many slopes oná5 various and complementary sides.
From Beauregard beginners area to Balme massif, every kind of skier will find what he is looking for! Despite an average high quite low, la Clusaz has a very good snow cover thanks to its excellent location.
The only frawbacks we can find are massif links which are not efficient and ski lifts equipments which are not very young. They will leave you time to look at Aravis amazing landscapes!
Notice that Clusaz / Manigod has the largest Haute Savoie cross county skiing area.
