What's new for Megeve this season?

Good afternoon all!

I'm sat here in our U.K office looking out of the window at glorious sunshine and it's seems hard to imagine that Winter is on it's way. However it is... with the reminder here being the stream of emails and phone calls from people who are staying or looking to stay with us this season in Megève *excited*

So while I have the chance, I'll update you with what's new this season  - as ever there's plenty to share about our most favourite place in the world!

New investment ahead for Megève’s lift system
Stanford Skiing MegeveThe SEM Compagnie du Mont-Blanc, Chamonix lift operator, are finalising discussions with Megève to take over the running of the Megève lift system. The deal is expected to be signed in the next few weeks and long overdue investment and new lifts have been promised. As a first step Megève is included in the Mont Blanc Unlimited Skipass covering Chamonix, Courmayeur and Verbier. They hope to be building new lifts next summer. Watch this space…

4 Season Luge for Megève
A new 4 season luge will be operational by the winter promising a great apres ski activity for all. Running on rails the new luge will be open all weathers and in the evenings as well as the day time. Great fun for all and I for one can't wait to use my kids as an excuse to have a try

International Jazz festival
Also new for this winter is an international Jazz festival from 24-27 March. So combine glorious spring skiing with great apres ski.

No More L’Alpette – for now!
Sad news from Megève. The highly regarded restaurant L’Alpette has suffered a catastrophic fire and has burnt to the ground. Fortunately no-one was injured as the fire started at 4am. The owners have promised to re-build but not in time for this winter. Don’t worry, there are plenty of other wonderful restaurants in Megève!

Megève has a charming medieval pedestrianised village 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. We specialize in Megève as a family run company owning and operating our own chalets as well as offering a transfer service to and from Geneva airport. This seasons prices start from just £490 per week! 
Our short breaks are also very popular with Geneva being only 75 minutes away - from only £310 for 3 nights in a catered chalet. Unbeatable! With offers and great prices throughout the season, why not get in touch to see if we can find you the escape you deserve this Winter - we're ready and waiting for your call!

With best wishes until then
