Skiing mecca for beginners and professionals
As this large ski resort is directly linked with the skiing areas of Combloux, Saint-Nicolas de Veroce and Saint Gervais, skiers in Megève can also access the vast ski resort around Mont Blanc. Here there are 445 kilometres of ski runs for winter sports fans, with 217 ski runs for all abilities.
Around half of the ski runs in Megève are ideal for beginners, and for the most part involve wide, sunny slopes. Steeper, beautiful forest slopes await more advanced skiers and there are demanding World Cup runs in Rochebrune and Côte 2000. Professional skiers and freeriders can enjoy the challenge of the steep, partly ungroomed mogul slopes beneath Mont Joly.
There are 2 snow parks for boarders of all levels, one in the Rochbrune area with a boardercross trail and another between Mont Joux and Mont d’Arbois with a 120-metre long halfpipe.
Cross-country skiers can choose from several trails covering a total of 70 kilometres, with the most demanding trails and skating routes in the La Livraz/Côte 2000 areas.
The “Famille Plus” label awarded to all resorts shows how family-friendly the Megève ski resort is. As well as ski schools, ski nurseries and a child care facility there are a number of other services that enable families with children to have as relaxing a skiing holiday as possible.
Snow golf, casino and wellness
The leisure and après-ski facilities are as exclusive as Megève itself. As well as classics like tobogganing, ice-skating and snow-shoe hiking there is also the option of swinging a golf club in the snow, admiring Mont Blanc from a hot-air balloon, or trying your luck in the resort’s own casino. Guests in Megève will also sometimes see an exciting snow-polo match.
For the relaxing part of your skiing holiday there are numerous spas and wellness temples to choose from in Megève, most of which have a steam bath, sauna and whirlpool and offer a wide range of beauty treatments.
To round off the day in style there are a number of chic restaurants, clubs, bars and discos in Megève, as well as 2 cinemas and a varied après-ski programme.
