Haute Savoie Ski Resorts

Haute- Savoie is of course evocative of Mont Blanc and its massif easily accessible from the Vallée Blanche. The many hiking and climbing possibilities available have made the whole Chamonix valley immensely popular...

France’s first major ski resorts were started in Haute-Savoie: Chamonix first, in the nineteen twenties, which remains the best-known French resort in the world, Megève, the “jet set” resort and Saint Gervais with its discreet charm.

You can also visit lac Léman (Lake Geneva), with Thonon, Evian famous for its waters and Yvoire with its medieval village.

Further south, the lac d’Annecy and the surrounding area offer magnificent scenery, and, just a stone’s throw away, the Aravis range with, among others, the resorts of La Clusaz and Grand Bornand. Don’t forget the newer resorts with their ultra-modern architecture, designed and built in the seventies, with the sole aim of providing the best ski slopes possible: Avoriaz and Flaine.
