La Feclaz is ideal for first time skiers, with plenty of nursery slopes and a true and authentic mountain top experience. The area is home to 50km of runs and some of the best cross country skiing in the Alps, with 140km of trails running through the beautiful forests. Heading to the very top of this ski area, visitors can see the Mont Blanc and the vistas of the Alps. The village is located at approximately 1400m and is a small and cosy resort. People looking to party might be disappointed but there are a few low key restaurants and bars.
The pistes of La Feclaz stack up at 21% green, 42% blue, 27% red and 9% black. There is 50km of pistes divided into 33 runs, and the longest run stands at 5km. There's a total of six lifts giving access to the slopes, and passes are competitively priced, compared with other resorts. January and February have the best snowfall, although snow cannons are situated to cover a 10km area. Night skiing is available on selected dates.
Beginners are well-catered for in La Feclaz, as there is a large proportion of green runs, making this a very attractive resort for beginners. La Feclaz has been described in the past as the perfect haven for intermediate skiers and it is easy to see why: the runs are not only numerous but varying. Whilst some pistes take you through wooded valleys others take you into a nice open area with stunning views of the Mont Blanc.

As with many resorts, the advanced skiing is more limited but that does not mean that there is no challenge. Cross country skiers can take advantage of the many routes that start at La Feclaz. Snowboarders will also enjoy the gentle slopes for practicing those moves. There is no snowpark in this area but you will find a boardercross. Don't forget that your ski experience is not limited to La Feclaz. Revard and Plainpalais are easy to reach and whilst they are both attractive villages, the ski area is very similar.
For a low-key and relatively small resort, La Feclaz has a number of snow based activities. These include sled dogs, snow scooter, sledge cross and yooner. Snowshoeing and paragliding are also readily available. For those who want to immerse themselves in the local culture, there is a museum and numerous folk evenings to give you a real sense of the resort's heritage. For a family night out there's even a cinema. Shopaholics might get a little frustrated in this area as any retail therapy tends to be in the form of ski shops, but this does offer respite for the purse strings though.
