The best slopes in Megève

In general, Megève’s ski domain is ideal for those first discovering the ins and outs of winter sports, but also for more experienced skiers seeking a gentle time on the slopes.

Perfectly suited to beginners and young skiers, the resort counts over 43 green runs and 63 blue runs, as well as an excellent zone reserved for children in the centre of town. Nevertheless, with 84 red runs and 33 black runs, Megève still has some surprises in store for more experienced skiers!

Here is a selection of our favourite slopes in Megève:

- Les Chattrix, a stunning blue run with breathtaking views that winds all the way down to Saint-Nicolas de Véroce.

- All the red runs leaving from the Téléski des Etudiants. Facing north, these slopes are more technical and full of nice edges.

- The three slopes coming down from Mont d’Arbois towards the La Princesse quarter. Whether you opt for a blue, red, or black run, the Mont d’Arbois peak boasts the most beautiful view over the valley. These slopes, with over 800 metres of vertical drop, will give you a prized opportunity to enjoy the scenery, snow permitting.

When to visit Megève


In the winter months, Megève shines with a thousand lights. At the height of peak season, skiers and snowboarders come in droves to explore the Mont Blanc ski area, shops and restaurants are packed, and the whole resort is bathed in a gentle yet spirited atmosphere.

Come the end-of-year festivities, Megève is imbued with a particular sense of magic. Families and friends gather in its unique atmosphere, guided by the light of the Christmas tree that shines through the night.


From March onwards, Megève prepares for the return of good weather! The sun pokes its head out and temperatures become more balmy. It’s the perfect time for springtime skiing and après-ski out on the terrace.


Megève is without a shadow of doubt one of the best places to experience a summer in the French Alps. We come here to marvel at a sunbathed Mont Blanc and bask in the unspoilt nature.

At this time of year, the resort hosts many events, including the Megève Nature Trail for hikers and the Megève Blues Festival for music aficionados. Many shops and restaurants remain open in the summertime.
