Megève doesn’t have the most challenging terrain in the Alps, however, this is more than made up for by Megève’s impressively scenic skiing, with lots of tree runs that are perfectly tailored to intermediate skiers. Beginners will want to hang around the base of the resort where there are some nice flat nursery runs. The area is also generally much more traffic-free than its neighbour Chamonix.
