Best of the Alps

The Best of the Alps

Megève is a member of the prestigious group « BEST OF THE ALPS » which brings together twelve very well-known European ski resorts, such as St Moritz and Kitzbühel. All the destinations involved are united under a quality label, which guarantees quality services, open to tourists throughout the summer and winter months. More than just a Ski Resort, Megève is a village with a story to tell and a soul to offer…


Perched at 1113 meters, a 1-hour drive from Geneva, Megève is an authentic alpine village that has preserved its identity while developing its first-class services so appreciated by the clientele today. Megève is a resort that loves winter sports, but also offers picturesque walks in stunning scenery in every season, and is an ambassador in the art of living.

Megève’s skiing is extensive and spread over three separate mountains, two of which are linked by cable car but not by pistes. The Chamois gondola from the center of town goes up Rochebrune. It arrives at a point where another gondola starts and goes to the top of Rochebrune; from the same point a cross-valley cable car (which you can ride both ways) goes across to the Mont d’Arbois ski area. Mont d’Arbois can also be reached by a free bus from town and is by far the biggest sector of the skiing, spreading over several valleys and going down to the neighboring resort of St-Gervais.

Winter Activities


Come and enjoy a skiing experience in the heart of a unique skiing area. Combining ski slopes, forests, alpine farmhouses and sunny terraces over several massifs, Megève’s skiing area offers excellent skiing to all enthusiasts. Families will find lovely gentle slopes that are more reassuring for the youngest skiers. Lovers of wide-open spaces will be able to take advantage of the Cote 2000 that benefits from snow of great quality due to its exceptional orientation. And freestyle lovers can test their skills on a “dedicated” area, where jumps and figures can be safely performed over a giant air bag. You will have understood that in Megève, skiing paradise reaches out to you.


From family walks in the heart of the village to pedestrian or snowshoeing altitude trails, the five senses will be aroused. Eyes that discover the landscape, hands that touch the crystalline snow, ears alert to each sound of the mountain, the nose overwhelmed with the fragrances of the forests and the pallet that savors the picnic straight from the backpack or a tasty meal in high altitude restaurants. Both for easy hikes or something a little more demanding, a guide will help you to discover the local Alpine flora, fauna, heritage and landscapes.


Nordic skiing has a special place in Megève, to which the events held by the Sports Club and the ever growing list of young cross-country skiing winners bear witness each winter. With 3 cross-country skiing areas and 45 km of tracks, the Megèvan slopes are suitable for all levels and styles of this sport.
