More Info

While it may lack the name recognition of Chamonix, LA Clusaz certainly does not lack any bona fides for its backcountry skiing experiences.

Among the favourite spots for backcountry skiers to head are La Combe de Balme, Torchère, Bellachat. Each of these offer some excellent excellent intermediate-level runs and are plenty to keep even the most avid skier occupied for a weekend.

For those seeking out a bit more of a challenge then heading to the mountains around Grand Massif is a great way to hone and test out your skills.

When you are not out on the slopes, be sure to spend some time enjoying La Clusaz, which is well-known for its delicious and locally produced cured meats, cheese and wine.

Aurelien was a great guide - friendly and professional. He offerred to change our day when the booked day was forecast to have rain. He also arranged all our touring ski equipment hire and picked us up from the hotel. A great day.

We had booked Ben for a single day and weather did not play nice: rain in the valley, snowfall and high winds on the summits. Hence, we were locked down to a single slope. Ben still made this an awesome day with lots of off-piste dives wherever possible, some avalanche training in between and good advice and powder exercises as he\'s simply an excellent skier. On top of that he is a great person and also available as guide in Chamonix and 4Vallee. Full recommendation!

Benjamin, jeune guide professionnel, confirme avec excellence que la valeur n’attend pas le nombre des années ! Nous avons pu, en sa discrète compagnie,  découvrir en toute sécurité une approche inédite et respectueuse de la montagne dans des randonnées en peau de phoque. Je me réjouis déjà de réitérer cette expérience l’année prochaine, si possible encore  avec le même guide, et avec même un degré de difficulté supérieur…

Malgré des conditions de neige médiocres notre guide Benjamin nous a permis de passer deux journées fantastiques à la découverte de sites vierges dans les Portes du Soleil.  La rando en peau de phoque fut pour nous une grande première à renouveler très rapidement.  Admirer la montagne avec un guide de qualité quoi de plus excitant dans la vie !!
