About the Mountains near La Clusaz

The low altitude makes the snow conditions unreliable. Most of the runs are west or north west facing and tend to keep their snow fairly well. The best terrain is at La Balme where there are several fairly challenging pistes above mid mountain. Intermediates will love La Clusaz as the slopes are gentle with a netword of tree lined runs. Beginners will find the nursery slope at village level and a couple of others above it.
