Megeve Snow Guarantee


Megeve is low isn't it - will there be snow?  This is our most often-asked question.

Yes, Megeve is low, but its proximity to Mont Blanc gives it much better snow than most other resorts at the same altitude.

Another often-forgotten factor is that high resorts are frequently closed due to high winds and avalanche risk, or the skiing is miserable in white-out conditions. Most years we find half of Chamonix skiing in Megeve from time-to time, because the Chamonix resorts are closed. The tree level skiing in Megeve provides shelter and visibility.

Also, much of the skiing is on pasture, so we don't need a lot of snow, unlike many of the high resorts which need a metre to cover the rocks!

Usually there are good snowfalls in April.

So overall, we think that Megeve has as many good skiing days between Christmas and mid-April as any other resort.

However, to give you peace of mind we offer a snow guarantee.

If, in our judgement, too few runs are open for reasonable skiing, we will provide transport to a nearby resort.

This service covers transport only; you may incur extra lift pass costs. We provide this guarantee for a £10 supplement payable at the time of booking. Otherwise you may incur costs in Megeve of up to £15 per day, depending on where we go.
