MASSIF DES ARAVIS
It is hard to find a more aesthetically pleasing area of the French Alpes than the Massif des Aravis.
The main resort in the area, La Clusaz, is a picturesque village built around a central church spire and typically Savoyard streets. It is a genuine mountain village which has a wonderful rustic charm and a bustling atmosphere 12 months of the year.
La Clusaz and its neighbour Manigod offer 132km of piste, whilst a 10 minute shuttle bus ride to neighbouring Grand Bornand adds a further 90km. There is skiing for everyone in the Massif Des Aravis, from sprawling, tree lined blues to the impressive off-piste sector of La Balme, which has gained mass popularity thanks to professional skier Candide Thovex’s hair-raising backcountry adventures.
Summers in the Massif des Aravis are spectacular. Cyclists flock to La Clusaz to test themselves on the Col des Aravis route whilst families can enjoy both the mountain lifestyle as well as nearby Lake Annecy.
