Dreaming of #Sochi? Try #Megeve instead!

#Megève has the image of style and sophistication but is perhaps not best known for  it’s slopestyle creds!  But did you know that Megève has five snowparks complete with rails and jumps for practicing your slopestyle moves?  One is set up for ski/boarder cross so skiers can get going at speed over those rollers!  Then there are the airbags at Rochebrune and Mont d’Arbois.  Just right for perfecting twizzles and twists before trying it on the mogul slopes?!  Fancy trying your hand at cross-country instead?  Megeve has a dedicated cross-country centre at Le Livraz and wonderfully quiet cross-country pistes.  You can even try the Biathlon as the Megève ESF is one of the few French ski schools to have it’s own shooting range.  Then you can practice your figure skating at the large indoor ice skating rink, catch an ice hockey match or even try your hand at curling!  If your taste runs more to spectator sports then why not watch the French Mogul ski Cup on 5th March and see how it’s done properly!  A real Olympic experience! 

Megève has a charming medieval pedestrianised centre with bars, boutiques, a jazz club and casino.  There are no mass-market operators because the hotels are small and individual and simply can’t accommodate hordes of guests. The ski area is huge and varied with something for everyone from long pistes through the trees to quiet beginner slopes with great views of Mont Blanc.

Stanford Skiing is offering half price lift passes for any catered chalet or self-catered apartment for short ski breaks, ski weekends and whole week stays from 16th March to 5th April.  W/c 30th March we are also offering 50% off children’s ski and boot hire! 

It keeps snowing out there and there's lots of it so grab this opportunity for a fab March break.
