What's it like at Megeve resort?

Megeve (Megève) is situated about 10 km off the main road from Geneva to Chamonix and is one of the most chic villages that one could hope to come across. Megeve is the main part of the Evasion Mont Blanc ski area - the 4th largest in France. There are three main ski areas; Mont D'arbois, Rochebrune and Le Jaillet, which offer 325 km of pistes and are served by 88 lifts. The Evasion skipass also includes nearby Les Contamines (120km pistes) but you would need a car to get there. In practice for most holidaymakers Megeve is big enough. With the resort being relatively low, much of the skiing at Megeve (Megève) is on beautiful tree-lined slopes with spectacular views of Mont Blanc. A particular feature of Megeve is that outside the peak french holidays the pistes are deserted and you ski straight onto the lifts. There is a wide variety of mountain restaurants. Megeve is a year-round resort with a full range of facilities including a large sports complex, outdoor pool, horse drawn taxis, many quality restaurants and some excellent designer shops in an atmospheric pedestrian area. The village of Megeve (Megève) retains a very French feel unlike some of the resorts which have succumbed to the invasion of the Brits, this can be seen as a plus or a minus depending on one's viewpoint.

Old freeride. from United Kingdom writes:

I managed a blast up/down at 0900 14/3/20. This later turned out to be the last day as I drove back to UK. It has not been the best season. Very changeable conditions from heavy rain to deep powder (or vice versa) within 24 hrs. The last morning was brilliant but very quiet. I guess the 'promised lift upgrades' will now be delayed yet again due to poor revenues. Hope I am wrong.
