RESORTS > St Gervais ski area
St Gervais, Le Fayet and Megeve are superbly situated 50 minutes drive from Geneva and just a few miles from Chamonix. These traditional villages are some of the most delightful in the Mont Blanc area with many bars, shops and restaurants.
Considered to be the greatest and most spectacular ski area in the world, the Chamonix valley, together with St Gervais and Megeve, is also the most varied and scenic, with Mont Blanc, Europe’s highest mountain, as a constant back-drop. The Mont Blanc Massif with its glaciers and forested slopes provides extensive skiing for all abilities. Stay with us at the Hotel Terminus and explore this vast ski area only a stones throw away.
Evasion lift pass: St Gervais, Megeve, Les Contamines, St Nicholas, La Giettaz and Combloux.
St Gervais/Megeve is a fantastic area which provides superb variety for all abilities. From St Gervais the gondola goes to the top of Mont d’Arbois, skiing directly down into Megeve. The sunny Mont Joux bowl is perfect for easy skiing. The more accomplished skier can also explore the Mont Joly and St Nicolas areas. For those seeking a challenge, try the World Cup run at Côte Deux Mille.
La Giettaz is noted for its tree-lined skiing, steeper slopes and rustic charm and offers delights for all.
Combloux is a picturesque resort with wonderful views of the Mont Blanc Massif, perfect for cruising sun worshippers.
Les Contamines is famed for its above-tree-line skiing and exceptional snow conditions, which ensures a long season. With 120km of glorious cruising skiing on long wide runs, this is a firm favourite with Snowcoach clients.
Nowhere else provides the scenery and skiing variety, dominated by the majestic Mont Blanc Massif. In our opinion this extensive ski area is excellent in all respects.
Chamonix and Mont Blanc* There are many ski resorts all within 20/30 minutes of our centrally located hotel. For the demanding skier there is Argentiere, Brevent and Flegere. Access to the Vallee Blanche is provided via the Aiguille du Midi, which has to be the most exciting one-day adventure on skis (off piste). Praz-sur-Arly, Notre Dame de Bellecombe and Flumet are linked together and offer further extensive possibilities in this region.
Les Houches* is accessed directly from our club hotel on the scenic rack railway and has a top station at over 1900m. Skiing is on varied wooded pistes down to the Chamonix valley floor and includes the Chamonix World Cup downhill run. Le Grand Bornand, La Clusaz & Hauteluce* are also easily located from our club hotel and well worth a visit.
* passes for these extended additional areas are payable locally.
