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

Megève 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 operate our own catered ski chalets/chalet-hotels and arrange holidays in self-catered apartments and 3* and 4* hotels for full weeks or ski weekends and short ski breaks in Megève, France.  We also offer 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 Megève has a reputation as the most chic ski resort in France, you can stay with Stanford Skiing and experience Megève 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. So you can enjoy a luxury short ski break in France, at an affordable price.

A huge ski area, with inexpensive lift pass

The Megève 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 in France

Megève is a very good option for ski weekends and short ski breaks in France 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.

Why choose us?

Stanford Skiing has never been an average ski holiday company. From the very beginning, the emphasis has been on treating our guests like family friends and offering a holiday that we would be delighted to go on ourselves.

So what makes us so different?

We charge a fair price for your holiday and that’s it.

We don’t let people come into the chalets to sell you anything and we don’t run on commission. We give honest, un-biased recommendations that will improve your holiday experience.

Our UK team know the resort, the chalets and the resort staff, meaning we can answer your questions confidently and thoroughly.

Our chalet bars are not run for profit, so prices are kept low for the enjoyment of our guests.

We treat our staff well, meaning you are welcomed enthusiastically and looked after by people who are enjoying the mountains as much as you are.

John and Kay, the owners, spend the whole winter in Megève and look forward to seeing you out there!
