One of world’s preeminent ski destinations, Megève is set among the snow-capped peaks of the Haute-Savoie Alpine range, while facing Mont Blanc, Europe’s highest mountain. Founded in the 13th century and transformed into an exclusive ski resort by the Baroness Noémie de Rothschild in the 1920s, this small French town has become known for sophisticated luxury in a discreet, understated atmosphere. Megève features a pedestrian-only medieval centre with cobblestone streets, designer boutiques and excellent restaurants. Adding to Megève's appeal, the surrounding slopes are some of the world’s most scenic for skiing.
Megève offers 136 groomed runs, totalling 445 kilometres (277 miles) – which may be covered by a single lift pass. There are also more than 30 kilometres (19 miles) of groomed cross-country trails.
Megève is ideal for beginner and intermediate snowboarders. Advanced boarders and freeriders may entertain themselves in four terrain parks – the largest of which is located on Mont d’Arbois.
