Megève Ski Holidays
With Mont Blanc in full view, the medieval town of Megève offers elegance and charm to rival the most upmarket and renowned ski resorts in the world. Smart restaurants, exclusive boutiques and cafés line the cobbled streets, where people watching is a local past time.
The 445 kms of pistes which form the Evasion ski area are comprised of tree-lined slopes, open bowls and mogul fields. In addition to Megève's extensive runs, the Evasion lift pass also covers several smaller neighbouring resorts such as St. Gervais, St. Nicholas de Véroce, Les Contamines and Combloux (transport may be required to access some areas).
Skiing in Megève
Megève consists of three main areas - Rochebrune, Mont d'Arbois & Jaillet. Each of the three mountains has a worthwhile amount of terrain, suitable for all levels of skier and snowboarder.
There are nursery slopes at the valley level as well as more snow-sure ones, at a slightly higher altitude. Intermediates will enjoy the whole Megève ski area, there is so much choice with lots of long, easy blue runs in all sectors. If you're looking for powder, then Megève is a good option as powder stashes can be found days after a fresh snowfall.
The Mont d'Arbois area provides the largest, highest and most varied terrain and will be where you are sure to spend most of your time. There is a wide choice of easy intermediate cruising, which sits prettily in the woods, perfect if the weather sets in.
While for most skiers the Evasion Mont Blanc ticket is more than adequate, it is now also possible to buy Mont Blanc Unlimited (MBU) lift tickets. As well as access to the Evasion Mont Blanc ski area, MBU lift passes (2 day+) also provide access to all ski areas in Chamonix, as well as Courmayeur and the Funivie Monte Bianco (in Italy). MBU passes of 6 days or more also offer a 50% reduction on a day lift pass in Verbier. Please note that these ski areas are not linked and that you would need to book buses where available in advance or have your own transport.
