Fantastic Skiing in St Gervais & Megeve

Well it's been a wintery start to our season here in St Gervais/Megeve ski area with flutuating temperatures and lots of precipitation.

We have been skiing since the 9th of December and experienced some epic skiing in the PowPow already.

Conditions are currently stable with all pistes open across the full Evasion area spreading the skiers out across the mountains so no ques at all.

Here are some pics to let you see what it's like up top....

Les Contamines is great for late season skiing

Beautiful Les Contamines

Les Contamines, part of the Evasion Mont Blanc which includes St. Gervais and Megeve, is a great place for late seson skiing. 
BASS Directors Derek & Shona Tate enjoyed some excellent late skiing there in April and used it as a venue to shoot video and prepare for their forthcoming trip to Argentina in September 2015 to represent Ireland and the 20th Interski Congress. Check out their videos which were all filmed in Les Contamines by clicking on the relevant image;

Hidden gems in the Evasion Mont Blanc

Pertuis Chairlift in Combloux

The Evasion Mont Blanc's well known areas include Megeve, Saint Gervais and Les Contamines but it has some fantastic hidden gems like Combloux which can be accessed from the opposite side of Megeve town (Jaillet). 

Summer and Winter this is a fabulous area with lovely rolling hills, great restaurants and quiet slopes (outside of French holidays)
