Megève ski area
► The Alpine ski area
Megève is at the heart of the Evasion Mont Blanc estate which offers 445 kilometers of slopes. A vast open field in the form of an amphitheater with, at each summit, a unique view of the Mont Blanc massif. Alpine pastures, fir forests, wide open spaces alternate for authentic skiing in an exceptional environment.
In Megève, powder is not reserved for the elite of advanced skiers. Skiers like you and me, also have the right to taste the pleasure of the cool, without venturing on dangerous trails off-piste. Indeed, in Megève, after a snowfall, not all tracks are automatically groomed. Several tracks are left untouched, which gives all skiers, whatever their level, to enjoy the fresh snow, without risking off-piste.
► Snowpark and new snow sports in Megève
Freestylers at heart, go to Megève! Accessible to all, snowboarders or skiers, amateurs or professionals, the Waidzai Park offers a wide range of modules to discover without delay! Its goal: to introduce novices to the joys of freestyle thanks to modules that are easier than in a classic snowpark.
Open all winter season, the Waidzai Park comes in ten attractive modules: whoops, pyramids, turns, hip, small jumps and boardercross. All in a space of 500 meters long, where neophytes can chain jumps at their own pace, and experienced freestylers improve.
