Skiing in and around Megève is a delightful mixture of alpine and sub-alpine terrain that benefits from regular snow storms, making its piste terrain some of the best in The French Alps. If you're venturing off-piste, remember that avalanche control is quite different in Europe and we recommend hiring a guide and bringing avalanche safety equipment if you're hoping to find fresh powder in the high alpine. A Mountain Travel Expert can make sure you get with the best outfitter available.
Terrific Ski Resort!Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Megeve. The night we arrived it was snowing, so we had a nice dusting of powder for skiing the next morning - and blue sky, with magnificent views of Mont Blanc. Megeve grooms their runs impeccably - great ballroom skiing! The Village is fantastic. Every day after skiing, the horse-drawn sleighs line up in the village square. Families love taking rides in the sleighs. Then there's the apres ski in the cafes and upscale shopping. Our hotel was a lovely four star located right around the corner from the Chamois gondola, very convenient. I loved the village atmosphere along with the country/farm surroundings.
