La Clusaz Ski Resort Guide
Snowboarding in La Clusaz
Snowboarding is popular in this area as both La Clusaz and Le Grande-Bornand have terrain parks. Beginners will enjoy learning on the nursery slopes which are served by chair lifts. There are a number of drag lifts but most can be avoided with planning.
Free Riders will prefer the runs around La Balme which offer a wonderful natural playground.
For experts it will be the off piste areas that will make your trip.
Après ski in La Clusaz
Once, La Clusaz was known as a sleepy French resort, but not any more! As the Brits moved in the resorts night life took on a new beat, particularly at weekends. We recommend the Caves du Paccally located in the centre offering live music nightly. The Pressoir is a sports bar showing sports videos. For dancing head to either the Ecluse Disco or Club 18 rocks which also has live music weekly.
Activities off the slopes in La Clusaz
La Clusaz has an excellent aqua centre with swimming pools indoor and out door, sauna and Jacuzzis. The village is easy to get around and there are some nice walks along the valley. It’s easy to meet up with more active friends in the mountain restaurants at lunch although some will require a pedestrian lift pass.
