Winter in St Gervais
St Gervais is a traditional, picturesque mountain village, located in the Haute Savoie region, just a 1 hour drive from Geneva Airport.
At the centre of the Evasion Mont Blanc ski area, St Gervais combines an intimate, family feel, with an expansive ski area. With 5 combined resorts (St Gervais, Megève, Les Contamines, Combloux and La Giettaz) there is 445km of pistes available, with skiing for all ability levels.

The Evasion Mont Blanc Area offers something for all. If a beginner, the accessible greens at the top of the St Gervais Bettex and Bettex-Arbois lift offer a great places to start. Whilst there are 33 black runs and many off-piste opportunities available for the more adventurous.
In addition to this it there is great skiing available in Les Contamines, the most snow sure region of the valley. It is a short drive from the chalet and we will provide transport to and from the area. You can view the full area piste map here.
