Ski into the centre of Megeve and take the horse drawn caleche to Jaillet. 13th century church dominates the main square. Beautiful Megeve village only 70mins from Geneva. Huge ski area, Mont Blanc, empty pistes, cheap lift pass. Ideal for short ski breaks. An hour from Geneva in our minibuses. Megeve pistes are deserted outside Paris holidays.

Megeve ski holidays, ski weekends & short ski breaks in catered chalets, apartments and hotels


Megeve is a hidden gem - one of the biggest ski areas in France, but uncrowded pistes and no lift queues outside Paris holidays.  On top of that Megeve has a charming French medieval village centre, no mass market English tour operators and the cheapest lift pass of any major resort.


We are a family-run company and operate our own catered ski chalets/chalet-hotels. We also arrange holidays in self-catered apartments and 3* and 4* hotels in Megeve.  We offer full weeks or ski weekends and short ski breaks in our catered chalets, apartments and hotels,airport transfers, plus Alpine holidays in the Summer.


The most charming ski resort in France at an affordable price!


The village is traditional, picturesque and friendly. Although Megeve has a reputation as the 

most chic ski resort in France, you can stay with Stanford Skiing at our catered chalet hotels and experience Megeve at very reasonable prices. Our guests enjoy great meals, low bar prices and there are no extras for wine, tea, coffee etc. All our ski accommodation is near the town centre and ski lifts.


A huge ski area, with inexpensive lift pass


The Megeve ski area is huge and a well kept secret so few lift queues outside peak times. It has more than 400 km of piste with fabulous views of Mont Blanc and is one of the largest resorts in France, yet the ski pass costs at least 50 Euros less than other major ski resorts!


Easy access from Geneva airport.  Great for ski weekends and short breaks.


Megeve is a very good option for ski weekends and short ski breaks because of its fantastic location just over an hour away from Geneva.  We have our own fleet of minibuses and are fully licensed for airport transfers.

A fantastic end to a fantastic season!


Thursday 19th April, 2018

Our doors are closed and the chalet staff have returned home after what has been a truly awesome winter in Megeve. From mid November onwards there has been snowfall after snowfall with incredible conditions for our guests to enjoy (and it's still there, see below pic from the webcams)

Now things have slowed down for us, we must say a heartfelt thankyou to all our guests from this season - we really do get immense pleasure from being able to look after you, sharing the magic of the French Alps

The work for us is never really over as we're currently taking bookings for the summer (Megeve is pretty special when the snow is gone too!) And of course our books are also open for winter 2018/9. With a deposit of just *£50/person you can secure your choice of dates and chalet now!

Thanks again for your support of Stanford Skiing and we look forward to being able to welcome you back soon...

Until then, best wishes

Team Stanford x
