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

Stanford Skiing is a family-run ski company specialising in ski holidays in Megeve, France.  We run our own catered ski chalets and chalet-hotels and also arrange holidays in self-catered apartments and 3* and 4* hotels in Megeve.  In addition to full-week ski holidays we offer ski weekends and short ski breaks in our catered chalets, apartments and hotels, and alpine holidays in the summer.

Geneva airport transfers

Megeve is a very good option for ski weekends and short ski breaks because it is only just over an hour away from Geneva.  We have our own fleet of minibuses and are fully licensed for airport transfers. 

A huge ski area, with inexpensive lift pass

The Megeve ski area is huge. It has more than 400 km of piste and is one of the largest resorts in France, yet the skipass costs at least 50Euros less than other major ski resorts.

The most charming ski resort in France

The village is traditional, picturesque and friendly. Although Megeve has a reputation as the most chic ski resort in France, you can stay at our catered chalet hotels and experience Megeve at very reasonable prices. Our guests enjoy 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.

We are a family company run by John & Kathryn Kinnear and their daughters Elizabeth and Caroline.

Today we are bringers of good news - there's snow a plenty in Megeve, even to village level!

It's become a morning ritual for the team here in the U.K to check the Megeve webcams for signs of the white stuff, so as you can imagine we were thrilled this morning to see these glorious pictures. Staff are arriving this week to get ready for the start of the season on Thursday 18th and hoping to get in some pre season skiiing... looks like they will!

If you haven't booked a ski break for this Winter, we still have some accommodation left with some great deals to be had. Christmas is now fully booked but we've one single room available for new year. Half term is also full, but if you're able to get out beforehand, the slopes are wonderfully quiet... Get in touch with our helpful and friendly team by calling 01603 477471 or emailing

Hope to hear from you soon! Team Stanford x
