Skiing in Megeve

Country: France

In a nutshell: A chic ski resort with a medieval town centre and extensive skiing

We like:

  • With its cobbled streets and horse drawn carts, the elegant medieval town centre is drop-dead gorgeous. It’s a very romantic resort
  • A great destination for foodies – some fabulous restaurants both on and off the mountain
  • An extensive ski area that’s well suited to beginners and intermediates
  • Lots to do off the slopes for non-skiers

We don’t like:

  • Low altitude skiing can impact snow quality
  • Despite some recent upgrades, there are still too many old lifts
  • Few challenging runs, although experts will find plenty of challenges in Les Contamines

RESORT DESCRIPTION

Megeve ski resort was founded by Baroness de Rothchild in the 1920s. It was then, and still is now very much a luxury affair. The beautifully preserved medieval town centre is lined with chic shops and top quality restaurants. It’s a wonderful town to walk around, so much so that many non-skiers come to Megeve to enjoy the fresh mountain air and dine at many of the wonderful restaurants.

The skiing in Megeve is great too; as part of the huge Evasions Mont Blanc ski area there is 445km of piste to explore. The ski area is best suited to intermediates looking for relaxed, cruisy runs, but it’s also a wonderful place for a first ski holiday. The piste skiing is so-so for experts, but there is some fantastic off-piste skiing in Les Contamines, which is part of the Evasions Mont Blanc ski area.

Megeve is a low altitude resort, but as most of the slopes are on grassy pasture rather than high-altitude rock. This means that the resort can open with only a modest snowfall, which makes it a good bet for early season skiing. It’s proximity to Mont Blanc results in good snowfall, so Megeve has a dependable snow record despite its low altitude.
