Tasteful chalets and congenial hotels rub shoulders with laid-back bars, buzzing après-ski venues and enticing restaurants in the pretty village of La Clusaz. On the north west flank of the Aravis massif, the resort has a good snowfall record and is host to a qualification round in the Freeride World Tour. Show off your moves on the 1000m2 covered ice rink or try your hand at snow scooting and ice driving. Children have their own tobogganing areas. From the village, the Beauregard gondola ascends to the delightful nursery slopes, while more accomplished skiers can tackle blues and reds amidst the wooded slopes at Manigod and L’Etale. Across the valley there are some steeper runs – the gullies and bowls of Balme being ideal for off-pisting with a guide. From the Beauregard area good intermediate skiers and above can enjoy an energetic anti-clockwise ski circuit of the whole ski area in one day. Buses also link to Le Grand Bornand for a further 83 kilometres of ski challenges included on the Massif des Aravis lift pass.
