Opening of la Clusaz and cancellation guarantee

Publication date 12 November 2020,
Following the presidential address, La Clusaz sends a message to its clients and community. It has an important revelation to make: we are not an amusement park!

La Clusaz is a mountain village that lives year-round, with its inhabitants, schoolchildren, artisans, merchants, farmers and secondary residents. We are not just a "ski resort" that opens or closes its doors on request, like a shopping center.

President Macron expressed doubts about the opening of the Ski Areas for this end of year. However, the decision will be taken definitively by the Prime Minister on December 3. In the meantime, the village of La Clusaz continues to prepare itself and will welcome its customers whatever the constraints, with or without access to its alpine ski area. Its mountains are still there, firmly anchored in the Aravis chain! Outdoor or indoor activities, cultural and heritage places will be available to our clients. 

Anyone in the region who wishes to come and enjoy the great outdoors, with an exceptional panorama, within a radius of 20 km around their home, of course ...

The regulars know that La Clusaz offers much more than alpine skiing to enjoy its mountains. A multitude of activities allow you to live fully of its wild environment!

Thus, according to the authorizations that will be granted on December 15th, our guests will be able to enjoy snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, the benefits of a forest hike, the thrill of ski joering, the magic of a dog-sled escapade, the market around its beautiful fir tree etc...

In La Clusaz, a local proverb sums up our state of mind in these particular times:

"It is because we will always respect where we come from that we will always be free to go where we want".



  • Implementation of a health charter in La Clusaz with a simple objective: to make each one of us responsible in the fight against Coronavirus and to go beyond barrier gestures to focus our relationships on conviviality and sharing. Be transparent about our organization and propose reflexes that are easy to implement. 
  • Antigenic test in La Clusaz: Danay Pharmacy now offers antigenic tests, without appointment, for people under 65 years old wishing to be quickly tested (results in less than 15 minutes). These COVID-19 tests can now be performed without a prescription and are fully covered by health insurance (subject to eligibility).
