La Clusaz Ski Resort & Transfer Guide

La Clusaz is a small town situated in the valley of the Aravis mountain range, near the romantic Annecy and an hour's drive from Geneva airport. You will feel a calm measured way of life and friendliness of locals from the first minutes of your stay at the resort. And such an amazing beauty of nature is not easy to find in all of France.

La Clusaz is very popular among the inhabitants of France, and almost unknown beyond its borders. Despite its modest size, La Clusaz can proudly boast of a rich history, traditions and, of course, the achievements of its skiers. From these places fourteen winners of the World Cup and the Olympic Games in ski kinds and snowboards have come out. Olympic champion in 1992 in ski acrobatics Edgar Grospiron and silver prize-winner of the Olympics in Grenoble Guy Perillat polished their technique on these slopes.

La Clusaz, together with the resorts of Le Grand Bournand, Manigo and Saint-Jean-de-Sixt, form the combined ski area of ​​Aravis Massif and Lake Annecy, where a single ski pass operates.

Ski Resort Location

La Clusaz is a commune in the department of Haute-Savoie in the Rhone-Alpes region in southeastern France with a population of 1800 people. This famous ski resort is located in the Alps near the Swiss border.

La Clusaz got its name in ancient times because of its location - the word Cluse - means "narrow path" between the two mountains. In 1902, the opening of the road connecting Annecy with the valley of Thones and the valley of Aravis allowed La Clusaz (before this small and remote village) to become a tourist center for summer and winter sports. In 1956 the first cable car was introduced. And already since 1969 La Clusaz is classified as a resort of winter sports and mountaineering. Annual Candide Invitational ski competitions are held here, in which leading athletes take part.
