Smile LA CLUSAZ | A traditional french mountain village + landscapes pics

I don't really know where open this thread, sorry if I chose the wrong place



Pop. 2023, Elevation: 1040-2500m (3412-8202 ft) and a logo which reminds me another one :



I spent last week-end in La Clusaz, 2.5 hours drive from St Etienne, a Haute Savoie small village:





In winter (http://www2.laclusaz.com/index.jsp?c=62922), La Clusaz is a ski resort, not really big, but a charming one, Edgar GROPIRON's hometown, triple moguls world champion, I think the most famous one.
And in Summer (http://www.laclusaz08.com/index.php?lang=_uk) has many activities to offer, but 2 days was too short, so I've only visited the village and did a small trek.

La Clusaz doesn't produce only ski champions but cheese too, the local specialities is the Reblochon:



It stinks but it's really good (sorry this link is in French: http://www.reblochon-fermier-aravis.com/fabrication.php, anyway these kind of cheeses have no chance to pass FDA controls!!!)

The tour begins on Saturday, a nice warm and sunny day

It's oké: I like the landscape.
I suppose there are worse places to spend a holiday.

Is there some kind of disease attacking the trees ? They don't look healthy.

Beautiful!  Wow I can't believe how similar that looks to parts of the Colorado Rockies.  I really enjoyed the thread, thanks!
