Megeve Snow Reports
17th March, 2018
It started snowing again at 8am and has been dumping all day. The World Cup skicross races were postponed until tomorrow, but the forecast is that it won't stop until Tuesday when the temperature will plummet to minus 10! Perhaps we'll get some sun for Easter, we have enough snow to last until June.
14th March, 2018
Just in case you're wondering, there's still loads of snow. Powder skiing yesterday in fresh snow and more forecast this weekend. The base is huge so great for Easter.

Thank goodness Megeve is better prepared for heavy snow - Epic amounts have been falling across resort. This pic was taken today at the bottom of the Chamois lift, so down in the town. Hurrah to the Beast from the East we say!
There have been disruptions both from UK airports and Geneva so do make sure you check in with your airline before you set off if you’re heading out in the next few days...

Cloudy first thing but it burnt off and we had a glorious sunny day. Quite cold ( -5) but perfect pistes. The easy-access off-piste is skied out but if you are prepared to walk a bit there's untracked spring snow to be found, still in good condition because it has stayed cold since the last snowfall. There is such a big base now and fantastic skiing. Come and join us!

We had a few days of foul weather at the end of last week but today was sunny, cold and clear. About 2 - 5 cm of new snow to freshen the pistes. The snow base is huge - certainly enough to last until mid April. There will probably still be snow in May/June. Paris Holidays started yesterday but the Parisians don't usually go out to ski until 11. Here is a picture of Neville on the Jardin piste at 10.15 this morning.
This is the Jardin piste this morning
But actually, there were few people in town this evening - don't know where the Parisians are.

It snowed again on Sunday and Monday. There was about 30cm fresh powder on Monday morning - see pic below. Tuesday was very cold and sunny. It started cloudy today but the sun broke through. There is an enormous amount of snow. The pistes are excellent and there is good off-piste if you know where to look.
This is us skiing down to Les Comunailles on Monday

Its been snowing for the past 2 days - sunny spells this morning and cold. Forecast to be cold and mix of snow and sunshine for the next week. There is a lot of snow - you walk straight out on the level at the top of the Caboche lift at Rochebrune. In summer there are 9 steps down! So enough to last until the end of the season we think. But there is more forecast next week. Here is the view from our chalet-hotel Rond Point this morning.

Its been snowing for several days and nights now. Excellent skiing on and off piste. No queues off course and virtually empty pistes. Here is a pic of a friend skiing off piste down to Le Bettex.
2 January, 2018
We've had more snow overnight, following almost continuous snow last week. Its getting too much. Our staff are clearing the drive to the Sylvana car park several times a day.
Skiing is amazing, though not a lot of sunshine - it stops snowing occasionally and we get a clear sunny spell.

Sooo much snow!
We're thrilled and very excited that there is SNOW EVERYWHERE! with meter deep snow up at Cotes 2000 and plenty more forecast right down to town level
The locals were queuing up on Friday evening at the lift offices to purchase their passes for the weekend and fantastic conditions are being reported across resort
The ceremony for the lighting of the Christmas tree took place on Saturday evening - very spectacular! Plus all the staff have arrived and are preparing for the arrival of our guests (and hopefully getting a little skiing in too!)
If you haven't already booked for this season, NOW IS THE TIME! We've some fantastic deals and now that the snow has truly arrived, we're filling up fast
Keep an eye on our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts for the latest pics and news....
28th November - Even more early snow!
Around 20cm more fell on the slopes over the weekend and a good few inches down in town as well. There's more forecast this week. It's cold out there and the snow cannon are going so looking promising for Christmas and New Year!
13th November, 2017
Around 6 inches fell in town last night, we had to dig out the vans. Loads more on the slopes. Skiing not open yet but I guess some lucky people will hike up there!

It started snowing on the mountain 2 days ago and hasn't stopped. Still snowing in town at 8pm this evening. Today there was 40 - 50cm new snow on the mountain and 15-20cm in town. So it was a perfect skiing day but only about 5% sunshine. Forecast is for more snow, heaviest next Sunday.
Above is a pic of Kathryn skiing the Bridans piste - which as you can see hadn't been pisted.

It hasn't snowed for a week but most of the pistes are in perfect condition. Today was sunny in the morning but clouded over later - maybe a little new snow coming - forecast uncertain. Its school holidays for Paris, UK and most of Europe, so the really popular easy-to-reach pistes are a bit busy but you can get away and find deserted pistes.
The key to french holiday skiing in Megeve is to get up early - the Parisians don't really get going until 11, so the first 2 hours are great. The picture above is the Olympique piste in the St Nicholas area, taken at about 11.30.
9th Febuary, 2017
The sun finally came out for a few hour this morning. We had about 50cm new snow in the past week and the pistes are now perfect and its getting colder again making the off-piste lighter. There is still plenty of untracked snow. Below is a pic of Kathryn this morning.
It's the first week of the Paris holidays but the slopes are not crowded. Perhaps the Parisians have been put off by the poor early season snow and decided not to come. On our home page there is a picture of the Cote 2000 lift at 1pm - all the seats empty. We skied straight onto lifts all morning, not even a hint of a queue.
