Megeve offers some of the most challenging skiing in the Alps, especially when it comes to off-piste, but it also caters for beginners and intermediates. There is a choice of lift passes, from the all-encompassing Mont Blanc Unlimited, to individual tickets for cable cars.
Standing at 1,113m altitude, Megeve has access to a large and varied ski area to suit all standards of skiers. The lift pass covers the ‘Evasion Mont Blanc’ area which has 325km of pistes, including two nursery slopes. On one side of the valley you can ski over to La Giettez, and on the other to Les Contamines and St Nicolas de Veroce.
A handful of black runs, including a World Cup piste also makes Megeve a great luxury ski destination for advanced skiers, and there is plenty of off-piste powder in the right snow conditions. Nearby Chamonix has more extreme slopes for expert skiers, such as the Vallee Blanche, a 22km off-piste trail which can be followed with a guide.
However, a large number of runs in the Mont Blanc ski area are gentle and suitable for beginners and intermediates. There is also a network of cross country ski trails, and snowboarders will be happy to learn that Megeve has two snowparks and no T-bar lifts.
Firefly Collection is thrilled to offer you some of the finest luxury ski chalets and apartments in arguably one of our favourite ski resorts.
Thing to Do in Megeve
The luxury French ski resort has maintained its history admirably and is centred around its original village which dates back to the 13th Century. The ancient cobble stone streets wobble their way through the glamorous resort lined with modern restaurants and boutiques oozing Gallic charm and Alpine chic. Megeve is relatively uncrowded, yet it is full of life and offers a host of Beauty spas and music venues as well a host of luxury ski chalets.
There are plenty of things to do apart from skiing too. A large leisure centre houses a swimming pool, climbing wall and tennis courts, and there are indoor and outdoor skating rinks. Non-skiers can follow the marked walking paths and use a special, limited lift pass making this is a popular luxury ski holiday destination for all.
Megeve is a magical ski resort for children with countless activities both in and out of the snow for them to enjoy. A firm favourite is going on an adventure through the trees on a sleigh led by dogs with cuddles and slobbery kisses awaiting you at the end.
