La Clusaz is super cool for beginners, big, smooth, wide, what would you like. There are a few steeper runs but they’re on a pretty even slope so you gather speed in a civilised rather than break-neck fashion. Solid freeriding opportunities round Balme Massif which is like a natural park with plenty of obstacles.

Not much sun, but the up side is it keeps the snow nice and I don’t like it too glary. The facilities are all good and if the snow gets a little sad there is really good cannon coverage.

One of the best features of La Clusaz is it’s proximity to Geneva airport so you can swing by for a long weekend – but don’t bother in school holidays, it’s too good a place to learn.

“Natural park”

Balme has the good natural kickers and bowls – it’s good, steep back country freeriding. The main runs are fairly tame though, but really good for beginners, but beware the moguls. Read more...
