La Clusaz Advanced & Off-Piste Skiing

There is plenty to challenge advanced skiers at La Clusaz, especially off-piste. The best terrain is at la Balme.

There is plenty to challenge advanced skiers at La Clusaz, if you include its off-piste. The piste map doesn't seem to have a lot to offer experts, but most of the sectors present off-piste variants to the pistes and there are more serious adventures to undertake when accompanied by a qualified guide - all the more attractive for being ignored by most visitors.

The best terrain is at La Balme where there are several fairly challenging pistes above mid-mountain including the black Vraille run which is seriously steep. The piste map now shows the long new Lapiaz Black run down the Combe du Fernuy as well as La Noire at Beauregard, though the latter does need very good snow cover to be enjoyable. The Tetras on l'Etale and the Mur d'Edgar bumps run below Cret du Loup have been recently reclassified as blacks, and rightly so.
