General information

Massif des Aravis is a ski area in the Northern Alps and due to its harsh winters, there is always excellent snow cover. With approximately 220 km (137 ml) of predominantly blue and red pistes, this resort has a great snow record. The ski resorts of Le Grand Bornand and La Clusaz offer very diverse descents from 2600 (8,500 ft) to 1000 meters (3,300 ft) in altitude. The two longest descents are the red descent of La Combe de L'Etale to La Clusaz of approximately 10 km (6 ml) and the red and black descent of Envers to Le Grand Bornand.

Snowboarders can get their adrenaline racing on the mugel pistes, in the snow park of L’Étale mountain range and on the free ride piste on the Balme mountain range.

For the cross country skiers there is a diverse range of 74 km of cross country skiing tracks. There is even a cross country skiing track between the villages of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand so that you can make your route even longer. Massif des Aravis is an ideal ski area for both beginners and advanced skiers and snowboarders.
