About Lodge Le Grizzly ...
Lodge le Grizzy takes everything you want from a perfect mountain holiday and wraps it up in one stunning package.
Luxury accommodation, a private gym and spa with a sauna and hammam shower, on the piste and just five minutes walk from the cosmopolitan shops and restaurants of La Clusaz, this has to be the perfect choice for a large family group or friends holidaying together.
The chalet has been tastefully renovated, making the most of the original wood and stone construction and enhancing them with quality contemporary furniture and equipment.
In addition to the luxury elements there are great practical features too, such as the heated ski store, garage and utility room in the basement.
The property ...
After an energetic day in the mountains, Lodge Le Grizzly is the perfect place to come home to.
Relax with friends in the sauna or steam room as you catch up with the day’s adventures, or enjoy a glass of wine on the wraparound balcony before preparing the evening meal in the well-equipped kitchen. There’s plenty of room to eat together, either in the open plan dining area or on the piste-side terrace.
Later you can get together in front of the stunning fire in the living room to make plans for the next day.
Le Grizzly has six stylish bedrooms, all tastefully decorated and with their own stylish bath or shower rooms. Kids will be keen to get to bed in the bunk room, which has four hand-built beds, where they can dream of the fun still to come. They also get their own mezzanine play area, complete with books, games and a television. And if they're happy, you're happy too!
About the area ...
At Lodge Le Grizzly you’re perfectly placed to explore the whole of the La Clusaz/Le Grand Bornand ski area.
You’re right next to the La Clusaz lifts, and with your Aravis ski pass, you have access to 220km of pistes and 95 lifts, so you will never be short of somewhere new to explore. There’s great terrain for cross-country skiers at the nearby Confins and Beauregard plateaus.
Non-skiers will have no time to be bored, with an ice-skating rink and cinema in La Clusaz, as well as sledging, snow-shoe walking, dog-sledding and sleigh rides. If you’re looking for the ultimate in relaxation, let your cares float away in the village’s heated outdoor pool, while the snow falls gently around you.
There's just as much going on in the summer, and Lodge Le Grizzly’s position on the edge of La Clusaz means you won’t need a car to enjoy everything the mountains have to offer.
Hike into the Col des Aravis, or let the telecabine ferry you and your bike to the top, so you can come back down at your own pace. Other activities available in the area include horse-riding, climbing, via ferrata and paragliding. The mountains around La Clusaz are criss-crossed with tracks and paths, so there is somewhere new to discover.
The beautiful lakeside town of Annecy is just 30 minutes away by car, and is a great destination for a day out. The lake is said to be the cleanest in Europe and in the summer it’s a lovely place for water sports, cycling, swimming or you can just hire a boat and explore the lakeside beaches.
If you just want to relax, why not soak up the sun on the terrace or balcony, or visit the beautiful swimming pool complex in La Clusaz. Later you can catch up with friends and family over a barbecue back at Lodge le Grizzly, as the sun sets behind the mountains.
If you would like to enjoy a holiday in the Aravis mountains, Lodge Le Grizzly is a great choice, whatever the time of year. Check our calendar to see when the lodge is free, and we can hold your dates for 24 hours while you firm up your plans. But don't leave it too long - chalets with as much to offer as Lodge Le Grizzly are always popular!

From the Owner
We feel that the chalet is now one of the jewels of La Clusaz where you can spend a dream holiday with family or friends.
After experiencing several vaguely disappointing ski holidays in some of the more famous ski resorts in the French Alps, we decided to to try La Clusaz, a traditional village with its typical Savoyard church and soon realised we had finally found the perfect place for us to spend our holidays!
The Aravis mountain range is fantastic, we buy fresh milk and cheese from the local farm, the ski area is vast etc. In fact La Clusaz has all of the amenities and facilities we expect to find in a great resort and yet it has managed to retain it's authenticity. We love it here!
During our very first visit to the chalet which would go on to become Lodge Le Grizzly, we instantly recognised the potential the building had to be a fantastic living space. On top of which, it was merely a stone's throw from the village, and ski-in, ski-out. What more could we ask for?
The common living area of the chalet was designed so that adults and children could share time together without getting in each other's way. There is also a seperate area on the top floor of the house where children will love to unwind, play and read after a long day out of doors. The area is well stocked with books and games for children of all ages, and there are also some toys and a TV and dvd player.
Meanwhile, the grown-ups will no doubt enjoy the opportunity to relax and unwind in the spa area on the ground floor of the property.
This airy, welcoming and elegant chalet was designed, created and built by local craftsmen who paid close attention to even the tiniest detail. We've chosen contemporary furniture to compliment the more traditional materials of wood and stone.
You'll love the quiet location, the cosy atmosphere, and the easy access to the pistes and village center. There is always something to see through the picture windows overlooking the ski slope, including the beautiful sight of paragliders landing right next to the property.
We love our chalet, where everything is simple, comfortable and welcoming ! We hope you'll have an unforgettable stay and that you'll feel at home, as this is what we aim to provide for all visitors friends and guests alike.
Go ahead and spend a memorable holiday in our Lodge Le Grizzly ...

“A wonderful time”
We all had a wonderful time - the chalet was lovely and perfectly situated.
We would definitely recommend it and love to stay again!
It would have been great if there had been a bigger glasses and if the driveway had been cleared of snow.
The location was perfect. The decor was very nice - the cream sofa was a bit of a responsibility!
The location of the ski lift and the restaurants within walking distance were great.
Clare P. - 13/01/2018
Very comfortable for our group of 12. The proximity to the pistes and resort is very convenient. The great layout meant it was easy to manage our ski gear too! The ping pong table was a lovely bonus!
Jerome P. - 06/01/2018
“Our third stay !”
This was our third stay at Lodge Le Grizzly and we think that it is great for a party of ageing skiers. We take our own chef (a friend) which is the icing on the cake!
John M. - 05/03/2017
“Everything was perfect”
Big bedrooms, a location on the piste ... everything was perfect. La Clusaz is a great resort - a good size, good shops ...
Sarah A. - 31/12/2016
“We will come back for sure.”
We had wonderful stay with family and friends in Lodge Le Grizzly. We lived intense moments of real pleasure on the ski slopes, as well as relaxing and authentic time in the Lodge. We often visit La Clusaz and like it a lot.
Patrick H. - 02/04/2016
“Great times with the family.”
A really lovely holiday handy for everything (ski to the pistes and walk to the centre of La Clusaz). Very comfortable - we enjoyed some great times with the family.
Eric G. - 26/03/2016
“See you next year !”
Thank you Lodge Le Grizzly for another splendid week in La Clusaz. Great snow, glorious sunshine and a fabulous chalet.
Mike S. - 19/03/2016
“Location, location, location !”
10 of us stayed at Le Grizzly during February half term. Location, location, location : that's all I can say - it was perfect! We were a mixture of skiers from beginners to advance and being so close to a green run was an ideal way for everyone to establish their ski legs in the morning. The lodge itself is of a decent standard and ideal for families.
Amanda H. - 13/02/2016
“Thank you to the whole team”
A traditional Alpine chalet in old wood with really lovely accommodation and a very practical location close to the slopes, not to mention the extras like the sauna. A peaceful location and a very warm welcome. Our thanks to the whole team for being there whenever we needed them.
Mickael L. - 02/01/2016
“Everything was perfect for a magical Christmas!”
A really lovely holiday with family in this beautiful chalet - comfortable and very well equipped. Adults and children will all love this place. Even without snow, Christmas at Lodge Le Grizzly was magical - the comfort, the space, the en suite bedrooms, the location, the games room and sauna, the entrance hall where you can leave all your outside gear, not to mention the area and the village of La Clusaz. Everything was perfect!
Fabrice B. - 19/12/2015
“A wonderful experience at Chalet Le Grizzly! ”
Everything was perfect - the quality of the accommodation, the decor, the well-equipped kitchen. The bedding was very comfortable, the bathrooms were superb - to sum up, perfect!
Karima Y. - 04/12/2015
“We loved everything about the chalet...”
... and La Clusaz is a lovely town.
Saud A. - 08/08/2015
“A very comfortable stay”
We have lots of fantastic memories of our stay at Le Grizzly, and we hope to return. Our children (big and small) found themselves in a harmonious and comfortable setting and loved being able to ski from the door. Melanie's welcome was kind and efficient. To sum up, we recommend Le Grizzly to large families for a very comfortable holiday.
Marie-Claire S. - 28/03/2015
A beautiful week in a chalet ideally situated close to the pistes - we could ski back. The kitchen was very well equipped and the chalet was ideal for children with the great little bedroom and all the books and games provided.
Pascal C. - 31/01/2015
“A fantastic chalet and a fantastic holiday!”
We all loved it - the architecture, the light, the privacy in every bedroom, being close to the pistes and the village, the great resort ...
Julien R. - 17/01/2015
We loved this spacious and cosy chalet near the resort centre.
Pauline V. - 12/12/2014
Another marvellous stay in this exceptional chalet!
Jacques M. - 19/07/2014
“Beautiful chalet in a good location”
An ideal place for young children with a large secure living room. In addition, the layout means everyone can find their own space to get some privacy. Being so close to the centre of La Clusaz is a real advantage.
Cédric B. - 05/07/2014
“Perfectly designed chalet”
We had a great holiday! This property is ideally designed in such a way that life is made easy here. The fact that each bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom was brilliant. We also loved the games room, especially the young ones. The common room is really nice too, with very practical access to the exterior of the property. It's also great to be able to walk to town, and La Clusaz is a fantastic and friendly resort.
Hélène T. - 12/04/2014
“We had a wonderful stay in Lodge Le Grizzly! ”
It was certainly one of the best chalets I have ever stayed in and worked really well for our group of adults and small children. It was brilliantly located on the edge of a nursery run and a short (if steep!) walk into town. Six very evenly spaced bedrooms, clean, spacious and comfortable. The facilities for the young children (2 babies and 14 year old) were great too - inbuilt stair gates, kids play area, toys and books provided. The bunk bed room would be fantastic for slightly older kids. Steve the chef, and Laeticia who did the breakfasts, were both equally superb. I am sure we will definitely be back!
Gemma G. - 29/03/2014
“Superb ski in ski out chalet”
Excellent situation, comfortable, well equipped and spacious. Big plus: it's walking distance to the village
Eva C. - 08/02/2014
“Superb luxury chalet with excellent facilities”
We had a fantastic week in Lodge le Grizzly. It is a superb luxury chalet with excellent facilities (spare refrigerator, all round luxury, good boot room!) and tasteful furnishings (lovely bedrooms). Excellent location: the 'ski in ski out' location is ideal and it is within a shortwalking distance of the charming town of La Clusaz. Sauna a bonus! We hope to return next year.
Jonathan M. - 02/02/2013
The chalet's splendid architecture, the indoor and outdoor space, all the little details, the fireplace, the kitchen, the kids' bath tub... everything makes of this property an extraordinary place to stay! This was our third stay in La Clusaz and we appreciated once more the friendliness of the locals, the delicious gastronomy, the beauty of the landscapes and the professionalism of our wonderful ski guides. This year we even treated ourselves to a dinner cooked at home by one of the chefs! Everything was beyond perfect, even the weather between snow and sun. Thanks to the whole team for these wonderful holidays!
Marco S. - 05/01/2013
We spent a great weekend with friends at Lodge Le Grizzly. The chalet is wonderful and incredibly comfortable. All the people from "Snow Lodge" were absolutely lovely and welcoming. We live in Annecy, and we won't hesitate to rent another of their chalets.
Anthony M. - 30/11/2012
We had the most wonderful stay at Chalet Le Grizzly. It was beautifully appointed, with Arpin wool, a family run wool mill nearby, featuring heavily. Sophisticated and luxurious, the bedrooms, bathrooms right down to the curtains and throws could only have been selected by someone with a fine eye for design. The size of the chalet is perfect and everyone is accorded complete privacy. The location of the Chalet was wonderful, about 500m from the church spire and the shops. The locals were welcoming and friendly and helpful. The surrounding Alps are breathtaking and one can really feel the way of life steeped in tradition and love for their culture. We cannot express how disappointed we were to leave! I could've stayed and lived for many years that way. It was nothing short of divine. We will be back!
Edwina A. - 23/09/2012
We had a lovely week in Lodge Le Grizzly. It's a very comfortable, spacious and beautifully furnished chalet.
Oliver C. - 25/08/2012
We had a very good stay at the Grizzly. We hope to come back very soon and ..regret to have to return to the Netherlands!
