Megève (Altitude 1113m, population around 4800)
Megève is a traditional and very stylish village in the Haute-Savoie region of Rhone Alpes in south-eastern France and which is located 75 mins from Geneva airport and one of the earliest ski resorts to be created. This internationally renowned resort is well known for its local gastronomy produced by Michelin star chefs and the cultural and sporting events give rhythm to the local life in Megève.
Mégève offers some very good skiing, with around 400 km as part of the Evasion /Mont Blanc range. With a selection of interesting runs that are particularly attractive to beginners and less advanced skiers.
The slopes are largely below the treeline – this is a great resort in poor weather – although there are extensive open areas, particularly higher up in the Mont d’Arbois sector. Each of the three mountains has a worthwhile amount of terrain, and they add up to a great deal of skiing.
