La Clusaz is one of the Haute Savoie’s best kept secrets for anyone who wants to be far from the madding crowd. Popular with the French and Swiss but generally overlooked by British skiers, The pretty village of La Clusaz retains its traditional character with its streets of wooden chalets, centred around the main square with a 200-year old church and weekly outdoor market. The nightlife is far from raucous but there is still a good selection of bars to choose from as well a decent choice of restaurants where you can sample the region’s famous Reblochon cheese. Airport/Travel: Located one hour from Geneva airport and only 35 mins from Annecy TGV, with excellent transfers. La Clusaz’s idyllic and unspoilt ski area spans five mountains, all linked by lifts and offering a multitude of options for Intermediates. Beginners will find the nursery slopes on the edge of the village and there are a number of gentle green runs to progress to which run through the trees. At first glance the area does not appear to have much for experts other than a handful of black runs, but head for the off piste and discover why the area is so popular with freeskiers. There is also a snowpark with options for all levels, and cross-country skiers have 86km of tracks to explore.
