La Clusaz

Sking in the upper areas of La Clusaz you could be mistaken into believing you were now in the Dolomites. That is until you start purchasing food etc.

The terrain accessed from the Col De Balme is spectacular. La Clusaz offers interesting terrain for powderhounds and is well worth a visit.

La Clusaz  is about 3 hours from Burgundy in case you were wondering! (Editor's note - wine & snow combination, gotta love Europe!)

The race for fresh tracks at La Clusaz

Powderhounds Europe21/08/2018
We scored a powder day at La Clusaz. Sadly it was on an incredibly busy Saturday when the whole of western Europe decided to go skiing.

Through cunning observation, we snuck ahead of the pack onto the resorts highest chair & plundered steep waste deep powder. We got a second run in before the entire upper bowl was smashed by the frenzied humanity. Fun though.

As an incoming storm finally shut down most of the lifts, we skied down a scaly piste that crossed numerous stone laden driveways (WTF!) back into the village.

Having an urgent wee stop, I noted that any passerby could look in on all the shrunken manhoods through a clear glass window. Ah the French!

After being informed there was no refund on our ticket deposit (what is the deposit for?) it was with great relief that we left, probably never to return. 

We overnighted in magnificent surrounds in the medieval walled village of Conflans, sitting pretty above awful Albertville. A fine bar with a huge array of brews, beer taps mounted on a motorcycle engine block, some tasty local food & a wander around the town walls in falling snow made everything right again.

Ski La Clusaz if you have to, but do it during the middle of the week, starting early to get first lifts.
