Megeve is nestled in the Haute Savoie department, in the French Alps. The word “Megève” in the local Savoyard dialect means “in the middle”, referencing to the town’s location between Switzerland and Italy. This unique village has a rich history and a heritage out of the ordinary. Megeve is based in the heart of the Evasion Mont Blanc ski area - the 3rd largest in France. The Evasion Mont-Blanc ski area is made up of 5 separate resorts - Megève, Saint Gervais, Saint Nicolas, Combloux and Les Contamines.
Megeve was the first purpose-built ski resort in France. Its ski area is divided into three main ski sectors: Mont D'arbois, Rochebrune and Le Jaillet, which offer a combined 445km of pistes and are served by 116 lifts. Megeve pistes are deserted and you ski straight onto the lifts.
