Megeve Ski Resort France

Megeve ski resort is centred on the charming & refined village of the same name. Megève is known for its protection of history, tradition & authenticity, characteristics which in many French ski resorts has been laid to waste.

Megeve's ski area is a tangled mass of lift, piste & pass interlinked confusion with neighbouring resorts like St Gervais & Jaillet-Combloux. Thankfully most skiers & snowboarders will remain blissfully ignorant of the ski resort boundaries due to the seamless & all inclusive nature of the Evasion Mont Blanc ski lift pass. The pass is excellent value & covers over a massive 400km of ski trails - how typically French.

See the Megeve - Evasion Mont Blanc ski trail map here.

Where is Megeve, France?

The Megève ski resort is in the Haute-Savoie region of the French Alps, only 90km by road from Geneva (GVA) international airport. The iconic mountain town of Chamonix & the towering Mont Blanc are only 20km away as the local pigeons’ fly! Public transport to the region is good via the Gare de Sallanches Combloux Megève (Sallanches train station). Regular buses on route 83 travel from Sallanches to the centre of Megeve in 25min. 

In a post Covid-19 world, many may prefer to take a private transfer direct from the airport their hotel. Search & book direct airport transfers to Megeve here.

Megeve Accommodation

The village of Megève has retained its regional charm & is the best place from which to fully experience the ski resort. The combination of traditional architecture, luxury accommodation & fine dining are hard to beat, but those travelling on a budget may struggle & are probably better off looking elsewhere ( like Les Contamines or Les Houches) & enjoying a day trip to Megeve.

The Powderhounds was intending to review Megeve in season 2019/20, but even though we visited 16 French ski resorts in early 2020, Megeve did not make the cut. Perhaps we will visit in 2021. More information will come when we get around to prioritising a visit to the resort (do not hold your breath!).
