Situated less than an hour from Geneva airport in the heart of the Aravis mountains, La Clusaz is a traditional Alpine resort with over 220 kilometres of marked piste and 53 modern lifts. But it’s not just the location and the runs that make the best ski holidays in La Clusaz some of the most desirable in Europe.
As well as world-class conditions, La Clusaz is a lively resort that still maintains its traditional mountain village charm. There’s a wide range of shops and other facilities, and as well as skiing and snowboarding, you can also try Ski Joering (which involves being pulled on shorter skis by a mountain horse) cross country skiing and other winter activities in La Clusaz.
If you have decided on La Clusaz then we recommend you stay in Chalet Hirondelles with Absolutely Snow. It is without question one of the finest accommodations available in the French Alps. Set over four floors, with a colossal 760 square meters of living space complete with log fires, cosy lounges and sun terrace, this is everything a luxury ski lodge should be.
Extensively renovated in 2009, the three sitting rooms, in-house bar, sauna, outdoor hot tub and massage rooms make this an incredible place to stay while enjoying the skiing at La Clusaz.
And what skiing it is too. The twin resorts of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand are made up of five mountains. With great conditions from December through to May, and 90 snow cannons in case things aren’t quite perfect. There is skiing here to suit all levels – from beginners right up to thrills for more advanced skiers.
The technically difficult black runs and fresh tracks after snowfall are challenging for even the very best skiers. Once you’ve explored the La Clusaz resort, Le Grand Bornard is just a short bus ride away. With lift stations taking you right up to 2,100 metres, the summit of Mont Lachat, the black, red and blue runs back down are considered some of the best in the French Alps.
With so many kilometres of incredible runs to explore, being able to head back to the Chalet Hirondelle for some après ski action is all the more appreciated. What’s even better is that Absolute Snow lay on a free minibus service from the chalet to the slopes and back, running from 8am until 11pm every day.
Relax your legs in the hot tub, soothe well-worked muscles in the sauna and get dressed for dinner in the luxurious oak surroundings of Chalet Hirondelle. This is what all ski holidays should be like and why the best ski holidays in La Clusaz are experienced by those staying at the chalet. With prices from £445 per person and £9,790 for the whole chalet for 7 days (sleeps up to 26 in total), it’s affordable too.
If all of this sounds like what you’re looking for in a ski trip, and you want nothing less than the best ski holidays in La Clusaz for you, your family and friends, then the Chalet Hirondelle should definitely be top of your list. You can book Chalet Hirondelle through Absolutely Snow.
