Located in Haute-Savoie region in France and only an hour drive away from Geneva airport is the very traditional resort of La Clusaz. The old village is full of character with some of its old buildings still dominating the very modest skyline of the village.

That being said, skiing is still very much part of the fabric in La Clusaz. Despite its size and modest reputation, La Clusaz has always been a well known skiing destination amongst locals and tourists alike. It receives high volumes of snowfall particularly on the upper half of its pistes, has great off-piste opportunities and is quite easy to get to from the UK. What is quite interesting about La Clusaz is its different ski areas and what they each have to offer; learn more about this and the ski passes below.
