Mountain biking is a big deal in the Alps during the summer but now it is also popular in winter. Mountain biking on snow is just as safe/dangerous as it is in the summer and is a completely different thrill. Located on Mont Lachat. Priced at around €40 a session. Tel: +33 4 50 02 79 10

Culture and Fun

Less strenuous activities include ice rinks, cinemas and riding on piste groomers. No trip to Lake Annecy Ski Resorts is complete for small children without a visit to a Reblochon farm, of which there are a plethora in LASR.  There are numerous shops a cafes in Annecy and the surrounding area.
