Chalet Alpage

The Seasons

Chalet Alpage is the perfect venue for your winter and summer breaks.

You can enjoy in and out skiing and in the summer, it is the ideally located for beautiful walks, activities, tours or just mountain-air relaxation.

For a not-so energetic life, you can stay at our chalet’s swimming pool and enjoy the south-facing terrace whilst soaking some up some sun and taking in the clean mountain air.

Winter

Winter at La Clusaz offers a broad range of exciting sports. You can enjoy the extensive ski area of the Aravis mountain range, which goes up to 2600m, through fir trees or in high valleys full of untouched snow.

You can practise your favourite snow sport from downhill skiing, freestyle or cross-country skiing as well as snowboarding. The Aravis mountain range gives you more than 220km of downhill ski runs from your doorstep. There are many off-piste opportunities for both skiers and boarders, and cross-country skiers are spoiled too with over 80 kilometres of pistes just in La Clusaz itself.

The resort has extensive snowmaking equipment, which guarantees skiing in most parts of the ski-area from late December to mid-April.

Staying at the Chalet Alpage makes it easy for you, the ski lift of Les Laquais is just a few meters away; the ski bus stops just outside the door; or, if you prefer, you can also ski down the green run from the back of the chalet straight down to the village.

The whole Aravis area is accessed with a single Aravis ski-pass or by separate passes for each resort which are conveniently connected by a shuttle bus.

You can also discover numerous other activities and enjoy the beautiful area by using snowshoes, dog sleighs or motorised snow-bikes or quads. For the more adventurous paragliding is easily available.

Summer

In the summer, the Aravis mountain range offers you a variety of landscape between flower-filled Alpine meadows and enormous rock formations.

The mountain is full of animal life from the chamois and ibex to the marmot.  Bird lovers will be delighted with the numerous species gliding around the mountains. In the meadows, cows and sheep will be forever present and give you creamy farmhouse products, which are served at the chalet throughout the year.

Chalet Alpage is set in the heart of this magnificent scenery and is the perfect base for exploring endless sporting and recreational activities. If you would like us to organise some local activities just let us know. We have direct access to professional, qualified guides and instructors. They will ensure that your activity holiday will be a memorable and safe experience.

And if you want to venture to Annecy Lake which is only 20 minutes away, you can enjoy a whole range of water sports or beach activities.
